In this unique session, attorneys Michael Heinlen and Thomas Maddrey present a back and forth discussion about what makes a work “transformative” in the eyes of the courts and in the eyes of the art community. Short presentations of each side will give way to a group discussion on the nature of transformation both in art and in the law.
