For over a decade, aerosol artists, led by curator Jonathan Cohen (Meres One), painted the façade of a derelict factory complex in Long Island City, transforming it into the world famous 5Pointz, aka the Institute of Higher Burnin’ or 5Pointz Aerosol Art Center, Inc. On November 19, 2013 the owner of the building, Jerry Wolkoff, whitewashed the building complex without warning. A year and a half later, the building was demolished, to be replaced with a luxury condominium. Following a three-week trial in late 2017, a Federal District Court last February awarded $6.75 million to 21 of the artists under a rarely litigated statute, the Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990 (VARA), which protects artists’ moral rights in their work. The case is now on appeal before the Second Circuit. Stake holders on both sides are trying to make sense of the significance of this momentous decision, which ruled that 45 of the works were of “recognized stature” under VARA. Join us for a discussion with insiders and experts on this ground-breaking case, including Jonathan Cohen aka Meres One, Founder of 5Pointz and 5Pointz Creates, Marie Cecile Flageul, Co-Founder of 5Pointz Creates and Curator of the Museum of Street Art (MoSA), Angelo Madrigale, Director of Contemporary Art at Doyle, Renee Vara, Founder & CEO of VARA ART, and Steven R. Wagner, Esq., Partner at Wagner Berkow LLP. The discussion will be hosted by Judith Prowda, Esq., MA in Art Business Faculty, Sotheby’s Institute of Art- New York.

Vincent Fremont, Sally King-Nero, Stephan Pascher, and Morgan Falconer
Part of Andy Warhol’s reputation rests on having turned his disordered life into a kind of performance, and yet some of the most important scholarship on the artist involves documenting his activity with rigorous accuracy. To celebrate the opening of a major new Warhol retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art, we ask what is most compelling today: Warhol’s chaotic life-as-art, or his individual works, or something else entirely? To answer these questions we are joined by three figures who see his life from different perspectives. Vincent Fremont was formerly the Vice President of Andy Warhol Enterprises and the executive manager of the artist’s studio. Following Warhol’s death in 1987, he was instrumental in forming the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Sally King-Nero has been the Executive Editor of the artist’s catalog raisonné and Curator of Drawings and Photographs at the Andy Warhol Foundation for over 25 years. They are joined by artist and Sotheby’s Institute of Art professor Stephan Pascher. The discussion will be hosted by Morgan Falconer, Acting Director of the MA in Contemporary Art program at Sotheby’s Institute of Art-New York.
