Appropriation artists are seen to re-use the work of other artists, or re-contextualise ready-made objects, making claims of both art and authorship. How does or how should copyright law respond to this artistic practice?

Join panelists Jani McCutcheon, Associate Professor at the UWA Law School and HERE&NOW18 artists Dr Alex Spremberg and Dr Perdita Phillips to discuss the concept and relevance of authorship in contemporary art, and how it aligns with copyright law’s understanding of authorship.

This event is the first of a series of Art + Law discussions held in collaboration with the Law School at UWA.
