  • Artists’ Estates - in the Talks room (Hotel de la Poste)
    How to play a role as an estate in order to reassess the artist’s oeuvre after his death, at the level of its scientific value, in the market and in the museum context? The speakers will share their experience with artist’s legacies also addressing questions such as: How can an artist already plan his future estate? How to deal with the catalogue raisonné? How to collaborate with the different actors in the art market?
