Law is Art!
This project’s target, which our lawyers always strive to translate into action, is the desire to support progress and experimentation in the artistic field, to promote creativity in all its forms and expressions, even outside the traditional circuits, and above all to acknowledge and appreciate art as an experience that is constantly enriching at both the individual and collective level.
Law is Art! project can rely on an interdisciplinary team of professionals, led by the accomplished project manager Maria Grazia Longoni Palmigiano, a contemporary art collector and founding member of the ACACIA Association. This specialised team at LCA can offer qualified and all-encompassing consultancy services in art law and its various branches (contractual, logistical, insurance, criminal law, as well as copyright, advertising, litigation, cultural patronage).
On the 10th anniversary of the Law is Art! project and for the Milan Art Week, LCA Studio Legale presents at Palazzo Borromeo the exhibition «Meridiane» by Stefano Arienti, with the collaboration of Antonini Milano, ARTE Generali and Apice. During Art Week, the LCA Prize for Emergent is also awarded to the HOA Gallery (São Paulo), which was chosen by the jury for the best presentation in the Emergent section of miart.

Within miart is retained the LCA for Emergent Prize - dedicated to the best emerging gallery - which, for this edition, is awarded to the Sans Titre gallery (Paris). Concurrently, LCA inaugurated at Palazzo Borromeo the exhibition «Ten minutes and a breath» by Francesco Arena, organised in collaboration with Galleria Raffaella Cortese and Antonini Milano. Since November, the Firm has been hosting in its Milan’s office the artworks of Marta Spagnoli in the exhibition «Multitudes», in collaboration with Galleria Continua. Finally, as of this year, the LCA’s office in Genoa has also been added to the exhibition venues with the photographic exhibition «Al di là dell'acqua» by Massimiliano Camellini.
For the organisation of the exhibitions, the partnership with ARTE Generali and Apice continues.

Our partnership with miart was renewed through the LCA for Emergent Prize, awarded to the shared booth by Fanta-MLN (Milan) and Hot Wheels (Athens) for the best presentation among emerging galleries. In the same week, the Firm inaugurated Sabrina Mezzaqui’s exhibition at Palazzo Borromeo, dedicated to Hannah Arendt’s Notebooks, and organised by LCA in collaboration with Galleria Continua, Galleria Massimo Minini, Antonini Milano, AXA XL, Apice. Throughout the year our offices housed and showcased the works of the independent photography collective, Cesura, as well as a sustainable art project in collaboration with the students of RUFA - Rome University of Fine Arts and the startup Beeopak. In December, LCA inaugurates its final solo exhibition by Alessandra Spranzi, in collaboration with Galleria P420, ARTE Generali and Apice, entitled “Ogni giorno" (Every day).

LCA launched, with great pride, the"Cartoline dall’interno" (Postcards from inside) project, a visual and evocative diary of that very unique moment of reflection we all experienced during the pandemic. This took form as a multi-voice narration with 26 Italian artists: Francesco Arena, Jacopo Benassi, Luca Bertolo, Mattia Bosco, Botto and Bruno, Chiara Camoni, Silvia Camporesi, Gianni Caravaggio, Letizia Cariello, Loris Cecchini, Anna Di Prospero, Michael Fliri, Michele Guido, Loredana Longo, Claudia Losi, Marcello Maloberti, Sabrina Mezzaqui, Marzia Migliora, Ignazio Mortellaro, Ornaghi and Prestinari, Giovanni Ozzola, Alice Ronchi, Marta Spagnoli, Grazia Toderi, Luca Vitone and Silvio Wolf. Each of them sent us a picture of one of their works, accompanied by a word and, often, a brief thought or personal reflection.

We were excited to announce a new collaboration in Turin: the firm sponsored the “Sandy Skoglund. Hybrid Visions” exhibition at CAMERA - Centro Italiano per la Fotografia.

We continued to nurture our collaboration with AXA XL Art&Lifestyle, Antonini Milano and Apice and, through it, we planned the “Transition_Giorgio Morandi” exhibition, based on the artistic research of Brigitte March Niedermair, at the prestigious Palazzo Borromeo during the miart fair. In December, in collaboration with Galleria Z2O, we launched a Silvia Camporesi exhibition at the Firm.
