‘The Legal Medium’ to explore intersection of art and law
How do artists use law as material in their work? How do they break, bend, build, embrace, expose, engage with, and escape the laws governing the human body, the built and natural environment, the digital world and the political order?
Those are among the questions that will be considered at the symposium “The Legal Medium: New Encounters of Art and Law,” to be held on Saturday, Feb. 28 at the Yale Law School, 127 Wall St.
The event will include panel discussions, presentations, and performances, as well as a group exhibition titled “Irregular Rendition,” on view through March 14 at Fred Giampietro Gallery, 1064 Chapel St.
In addition, the symposium will feature the global public art initiative “Portals,” which connects citizens in New Haven and Tehran for 20-minute personal conversation. Launched by Yale Law student Amar C. Bakshi, “Portals” runs through March 1 at the Yale University Art Gallery, 1111 Chapel St. (To arrange for a conversation, visit http://www.sharedstudios.com/rsvp/.)
