Event Details

NICC, Flanders Arts Institute / Kunstenpunt, Estate Philippe Vandenberg and Art Brussels, in collaboration with Ghent University and BOZAR, organise an international conference on 19 April 2017  and two workshops on 20 April 2017 with regard to the legacy of living visual artists.

The care for the legacy of visual artists is crucial for the cultural heritage of tomorrow. Correct preservation and stewardship of the collection and the archive keeps the oeuvre alive. Diverse partners may play a part in this. In addition to the heirs and the family of the artists, private and public as well as academic institutions may have an important voice in the matter.

The sudden responsibility for an artistic legacy is not easy to bear. What is a good step-by-step plan and what role can archives, museums, universities and galleries play? Can artists’ heirs cooperate and can they learn from each other? What is the role of government in this matter? And, last but not least, how can living artists prepare their artistic legacy? On 19 April, we will examine these questions in greater depth.

On 20 April, two in-depth workshops are offered, each time for 25 participants. In the morning, Shervone Neckles-Ortiz of the Joan Mitchell Foundation leads a workshop on how artists can prepare their legacy. In the afternoon, Andrea C. Theil of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation leads a workshop on how to compile a catalogue raisonné.
