Upcoming events in London

Posted on: November 7, 2016 by

There are two interesting events coming up in London over the next couple of weeks:

The first is an evening hosted by the Franco-British Law Society on Monday, 14 November, from 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm on the treatment of Nazi-looted art under both the UK and French regimes. The keynote address will be given by the Chair of the UK’s Spoliation Advisory Panel (the body that hears claims brought in relation to Holocaust-era art held at British institutions), the Northern Irish Chancery judge, Sir Donnell Deeny. The French perspective will be offered by the leading practitioner in this area, Corinne Hershkovitch, partner at the Borghese law firm in Paris. The event will be held at Notre Dame University, 1 Suffolk St, and is free to attend, though it will likely fill up quickly. Email to reserve a spot at fbls@nulloutlook.com. For more information, see here.

Next Thursday, 17 November, there will be an IAL afternoon seminar on artists, their works and their legacies hosted by Boodle Hatfield at their Bankside premises, followed by a drinks reception. The event will include the following subjects: the removal and recovery of a Banksy mural (Tim Maxwell, Boodle Hatfield), the treatment of artistic legacies (Gilane Tawadros, CEO of DACS, and Natasha Hassall, Boodle Hatfield), the protection of street art (artist Stik), and the protection of artists’ works generally (artist Giulia Zaniol and Rudy Capildeo, Boodle Hatfield). The event is eligible for CPD points and costs £144 to attend (half price for IAL members). For more information, see here.

We hope to see some of you at one of these – or both.
