N@N – Tara Vahab: Artistic Legacies, Ancestry and Ownership – Navigating Resale Rights & Indigenous Protocols
March 7, 2024 12:00 pm
Artistic Legacies, Ancestry, and Ownership: Navigating Resale Rights & Indigenous Protocols is a compelling talk that delves into the intricate relationship between the economic aspects of resale rights and the profound cultural significance of Indigenous artistic legacies. This discussion unravels the complexities surrounding ownership, exploring how artists, communities, and the broader art world can navigate these nuanced intersections. By addressing legal frameworks and respecting Indigenous protocols, the talk seeks to foster a dialogue that honors both the commercial value of art and the ancestral roots from which it springs.
Join us with Tara Vahab, CARFAC Alberta Engagement Coordinator, for an enlightening exploration of the intersection between art, ancestry, and ownership.
