As part of The Dickson Poon School of Law’s Visual Arts Programme, we are pleased to announce the launch of Some Colours of the Law, a year long project that explores the relationship between law, aesthetics and visual culture. The project is the culmination of a collaboration with The School’s Honorary Artist, Professor Werner Gephart. Some Colours of the Law presents an exhibition of Professor Gephart’s paintings and installations, while a series of talks and conferences have also been planned for the academic year.

Some Colours of the Law launches on October 6 with a special event to introduce Professor Gephart’s exhibition. Professor Gephart is a painter and artist who is also the Founding Director of the Univeristy of Bonn’s Käte Hamburger Centre for the Advanced Study of Law as Culture. The artist and academic will be in conversation with Professor David Nelken (King’s College London) and Professor Greta Olson (Former Fellow of the Käte Hamburger Institute). Their discussion will focus on some of the artworks exhibited in Some Colours of the Law, using the pieces to explore the possibilities and complexities inherent in law’s relationship to the visual arts. Following the dialogue, Professor Gephart will offer a tour of the exhibition, explaining his insights and influences.

The event will serve as an excellent introduction to Some Colours of the Law and the subject of law’s relationship to art, aesthetics and visual culture.
