ArtCrime2018: The Symposium

There's a lot more to art crime than just stealing paintings. Looting, forgery, war crimes and the murky details of provenance were all on the agenda at ArtCrime2018:The Symposium in Wellington today. Dame Patsy opened the symposium and stayed on for the first two presentations - "Edward Bullmore's Icon No.3 and its Troubled Provenance" and "Toppled Trooper: the Fractured History of a NZ Wars Statue"
