Artist Career interviews with Indigenous Australian Artists

Art Press Release from Australia. Published by Rebecca Gabrielle Cannon on Friday 01 February 2013.

Our Art, Our Art Industry: Australian Indigenous artists talk art business.

View the vodcasts on the artistcareer YouTube channel.
From 2007 – 2009, artists from 28 Indigenous Art Centres and remote
communities came together under the Our Art project to discuss and
document art business, their Art Centres and the business
relationships and concepts that were important to them.

They considered how their art makes its way through the art market,
often to a city-based or even international buyer, including the
commercial transactions associated with that process. They discussed
the relationships, processes and agreements they enter that help
ensure that their Art Centre and their art practice is protected from
exploitative conduct that could undermine the return to the artists,
their career and the desired return to their families and community.

These vodcasts are one outcome of these discussions. Read more about
this project here.
