Annual Art Crime Symposia

Since 2015 the Art Crime Research Trust has hosted an annual Art Crime Symposium at the City Gallery, Wellington.  The Symposia are much anticipated, and include presentations from leading academics and researchers in the field of art crime, covering aspects of the discipline in New Zealand and beyond.

We are excited to announce our 2022 SYMPOSIUM:
