Art After Death
A half day symposium exploring legal, financial and
other issues affecting artists after death.
Arranged and supported by The University of Western Australia Law School, The University of Western Australia Cultural Precinct, and Artsource.
An artist’s primary concern is developing their professional practise, in whatever guise that might take. But do artists ever ponder what will happen to their work when they are no longer here? Who will decide where their work can be shown, who can reproduce it and for what purposes can it be copied or used?
Like any other personal property, planning for an artist’s artwork, including who will own the work, administer the artist’s copyright and moral rights, and protect their reputation after death is an important but rarely discussed consideration.
Art After Death provides a unique opportunity to hear from prominent legal, accounting and arts professionals about the issues artists and their professional advisors may need to consider when planning for an artist’s will and estate. Participants will also have the rare opportunity to ask questions and raise issues with the panel during the session.
