NEW YORK. Next Friday, November 18 the New York County Lawyers' Association (the "NYCLA") will host the 4th Annual Art Litigation and Dispute Resolution Institute. The day-long event promises to be an unrivalled opportunity for lawyers and non-lawyers to discuss some of the most pertinent legal issues affecting the art world today. The experts attending include Lawrence M. Kaye (of Herrick, Feinstein), Judith Bresler (of Withers Worldwide and co-author of the art law treatise, "Art Law: The Guide for Collectors, Investors, Dealers and Artists" (3rd ed.)), Sandra Cobden (SVP and General Counsel of Christie's and adjunct professor at Cardozo Law School) and Andrea Crane (curator at Gagosian Gallery). One of the highlights no doubt will be the unique opportunity to examine recent litigation involving works by the artist Kazimir Malevich as the event brings together some of the key people tied to the Russian modernist artist today: Lawrence Kaye represented the heirs of the artist in their litigation against the City of Amsterdam (as well as MOMA and Harvard University) to reclaim artworks by their ancestor (he is also the current Secretary of the Malevich Society); Andrea Crane curated the exhibition "Malevich and the American Legacy" at Gagosian Gallery earlier this year and Clemens Toussaint is the current Treasurer of the Malevich Society.
