Virtual | Professional Empowerment: Repatriation of Cultural Heritage w/ Leila Amineddoleh

12pm ET | 11am CT | 9am PT

Please join us for a discussion with Leila Amineddoleh, internationally recognized expert on art and cultural heritage crime and law and Founder of Amineddoleh & Associates, LLC on the topic of repatriation of cultural heritage.

For centuries, sought-after art objects and antiquities have been subject to high-profile ownership disputes. From the smuggling of religious artifacts out of the Holy Land to Hitler’s extensive looting of artistic property, cultural objects have been targeted by rapacious collectors and leaders. The British Museum’s ownership of the Parthenon Marbles is perhaps the best-known cultural heritage debate, yet legal battles are often not the focus of such intense public scrutiny. The presentation will examine antiquities disputes, including a discussion of the laws that regulate ownership of cultural heritage and the evolution of the art market.

ArtTable’s Professional Empowerment program series invites experts to share their professional experiences, knowledge and skills. Each session presents an opportunity to engage with and learn more about a topic, issue or skill that directly impacts the professional lives of our members. If you have a topic or idea for a Professional Empowerment program, email us at programs@arttable.org!
