IAL at BoodleA very successful IAL seminar on Artists, their Rights and their Legacy was held at the London offices of Boodle Hatfield on Thursday, 17 November. The talks included two heartfelt accounts of what it’s like to be involved in a legal dispute from an artist’s perspective by artists Giulia Zaniol and Stik. This was then balanced out with a helpful overview of the legal rules by Rudy Capildeo and Natasha Hassall, in terms of artists’ rights and artists’ estates respectively. Tim Maxwell, also of the firm, discussed his involvement in the recovery of a Banksy work that had been lifted from a wall at the Folkestone Triennial Festival. And finally, Gilane Tawadros, CEO of the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS), provided an interesting introduction to DACS’s new project for artists’ archives and their legacies: Art 360.
