Dedicated to the
Authentication in Art Foundation
The Court of Arbitration for Art (CAfA) is very pleased to now be accepting applications to serve in either of its two expert pools, including in the areas of: (1) forensic science/materials analysis; and (2) provenance research/art history.
One of the unique features of the CAfA is that it offers these two areas of expertise to parties disputing the authenticity or title to visual art. An expert designated from one of these pools shall serve as the only admissible and testifying expert in that case.
We invite you to review the respective criteria for these expert pools as published on the CAfA website and, if appropriate, to apply for inclusion within one of the pools. Applications will be considered by a special committee of the CAfA on a rolling basis.
Bridging the gap
AiA’s aim is to bridge the gap between the art market and the academic world, to better understand the financial, legal and intellectual consequences for those active in authentication research. AiA provides an impartial platform, free of bias and prejudice, for all who wish to join the discourse on authenticity research. AiA welcomes all points of view as long as they are within the limits of the law and are based on mutual respect
