In June this year and in collaboration with Art Sheffield, occursus hosted a symposium on the theme of art and work.

We’re pleased to announce that in February, we’ll be hosting a second symposium, this time on the theme of art and law.

As well as exploring issues such as copyright, commons, resale, re-use and appropriation, we hope to have a lawyer (or lawyers) in residence for the day.

The symposium will be jointly organised by occursus and Peter Odell from the University of Sheffield’s School of Law.

We’ll be posting more information about dates and the venue soon. In the meantime, however, if you are interested in participating or presenting a paper/performance/work, please email Amanda Crawley Jackson at
