Are cancellations, censorship, and institutional quagmires necessarily the end of art projects? Please join exhibition curator Lauren van Haaften-Schick and artist-lawyer Sérgio Muñoz Sarmiento for a conversation on moral rights, how law functions as a medium, and the increasing role of judges as art critics. Recent controversial art cases such as Mass MoCA v. Büchel, Kelley v. Chicago Park District, Steinkamp v. Rhona Hoffman, and Cariou v. Prince will be discussed.

Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento is an artist who practices art law. He is interested in the relationship between contemporary art and law, with a primary focus on copyright, moral rights, free speech, deaccessioning, and nonprofit arts organizations. He received his BA in Art from the University of Texas-El Paso and an MFA in Art from the California Institute of the Arts. He was a Van Lier Fellow at the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Independent Study Program in Studio Art in 1997-98, and received his J.D. from Cornell Law School in 2006.
