About this Talk

Revisiting the collision of art, technology and copyright in today’s landscape.  In today's digital age, artists are no longer confined to traditional mediums. With the advent of AI, AR, VR, and blockchain technology like NFTs, the art world has experienced a seismic shift.

As these tools reshape how art is created, curated, and commercialized, it is essential for artists to not only grasp their potential but to also navigate the legal, ethical, and societal implications they present.

This conference aims to bridge the gap between innovation and understanding, offering artists a platform to engage with these new tools while also deliberating on the challenges they bring.  The purpose of this conference is to educate, collaborate, build community and share ideas on these important issues.
