This Tuesday, October 11th at 7 p.m., the Visual & Critical Studies Department will present David Cohen: Artists Rights and Wrongs, with Karen Gover and Walter Robinson at the SVA Theatre. Here is a description of the event from SVA’s press announcement:
David Cohen, publisher and editor of artcritical.com, explores the philosophical and historical implications of several events that have gripped the attention of the art world. They include the dispute between Swiss installation artist Christophe Büchel and MASS MoCA, the lawsuit brought against Richard Prince by photographer Patrick Cariou, John Baldessari’s altercations with the Giacometti Foundation, and the case of the Warhol Foundation vs. Simon-Whelan. In response to his remarks, Cohen will be joined in conversation by Karen Gover, professor of philosophy at Bennington College, and artist and artnet magazine editor Walter Robinson.
The event will be held at the SVA Theatre at 333 West 23rd Street, and is free and open to the public.
