Readers of the Art Law Report will know that we have regularly touted the collaborative efforts of the Art Law Centre of the University of Geneva, the Fondation pour le Droit d’Art (Art Law Foundation), and now the Responsible Art Market Initiative to develop a center of gravity in Geneva around practical, real-world solutions in the commercial art market. This has resulted in a number of terrific and informative events about which we have written before.
The new year brings another exciting event. Later this month, I will be in Geneva for the next Responsible Art Market event: “Building an Art Market 2.0.” Scheduled as in the past to coincide with the artgenève fair at the Palexpo, it will be an interesting and informative session. I was honored to be part of the taskforce for the “Art Due Diligence” toolkit project that will be finalized before the event later this month and look forward to sharing it with commentators and participants. If you can make it (register here), I hope you will join us there! From the program:
Friday, 2 February 2018
artgenève, Salon d’art

Join us for our second conference and launch of RAM’s “Art Due Diligence Toolkit.” We will be discussing the importance of due diligence and the place of technology in modern-day art transactions. What opportunities and threats do they present for art professionals and collectors?
