Managing Artist's Legacy

This day-long workshop is designed to illuminate key opportunities and challenges in the management of an artist’s legacy. Leading experts from the art, legal and legacy management professions will discuss best practice when designing and implementing a strategy to preserve, promote and enhance the value of artist’s work now and into the future.

Some artists and their estates have prospered, ensuring a vibrant and long-lasting legacy, while others have been marred in controversy, involved in damaging public disputes and withered away. The difference between success and failure often rests on the artist formulating their vision for their legacy, the early adoption of a strategy to implement that vision, enabling forward-thinking and planning.

This expert-led workshop will provide cutting edge information and skills in planning and management relevant for living artists and their families. It is also relevant to advisers and collectors who are interested in protecting and enhancing the value of artist’s estates. The workshop draws on leading experts in the fields of law, tax, finance, intellectual property and information management as well as successful managers of leading artist’s estates.

The day will include a mix of presentations, panel and group-based discussions and specially designed case-based scenarios, designed to create a friendly and supportive environment. Key information will be provided on the most recent legal and business practices with consideration of how that will apply in your specific case.

This workshop is primarily for artists, their families and those interested in preserving artists’ legacies and estates. The workshop is designed to provide an overview of the legacy management field as well as more detailed information on successful estate management and planning.

Guest speakers will include experts from the industry and art world with a key note introduction by Christopher Le Brun, President of the Royal Academy of Arts.
