This course covers some of the most important and least understood legal issues regarding art gallerists, art advisors, and collectors. It explores (i) the conflicting obligations of gallerists in the “primary” and “secondary” markets; (ii) the fiduciary and agent duties of the art advisor; (iii) and the particular exposure of the collector resulting from U.C.C. provisions controlling art transactions.
Each component will provide a structured account of the legal regime and its practical relevance to the art context actor. The course is especially relevant in light of the evolution of hybrid gallerist-dealers in response to the challenges to the brick-and-mortar gallery/Leo Castelli model posed by globalized art market developments.
Richard Lehun is a founding member of the New York Stropheus legal and business collective for the arts, responsible for transactions relating to artist-gallery relations, artist commissions, art advising, consignor-auction house relations, gallery, museum, auction house, and non-profit ethics. He also works in the area of arts related intellectual property issues, including copyright and trademark. He is a course lecturer at Sotheby's Institute of Art and Christie's Education on art law and business. Richard Lehun completed his JD at McGill University, and then attained a doctorate in fiduciary law (SJD) while cross-appointed as a Visiting Researcher at Harvard Law School.
