Art in the public space and the law

Who is the owner of a work in the public space? What are the restrictions on use and reproduction? How can these works be preserved? What should you think about before commissioning a work in the public space?

The Art Law Foundation (FDA) and the Fonds cantonal d’art contemporain (FCAC) have been working together on these questions since 2020. We look forward to welcoming you to the auditorium of the Musée d’ethnographie de Genève (MEG) on Tuesday 14 May at 2.30pm for a half-day conference on public art and the law.

After conducting a national consultation and a workshop examining practice in this field, the FDA and the FCAC have co-written a guide to good practice and are joining forces to offer you this half-day of lectures, round-table discussions and a book launch.

We are delighted to announce that the artist Thomas Hirschhorn will be speaking at the close of the conference.
