We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

NAVA, ArtsLaw and the PPSR

Only eight people attended a presentation by the Australian Government Solicitor and Arts Law on the Personal Property Securities Register.
It was pretty heavy going and my understanding is limited. This legislation replaces a lot of other legislation - not necessarily a simplification for us common people. It requires a review and possibly registration, of our contractual arrangments with people who exhibit our work for us. The registration would clarify who actually owns a work even though it may be in someone else’s possession.
So - we need to investigate further.... good luck everyone.
