ArtlawTV was a series of short films commissioned by Artquest to explore many of the legal issues that artists face when making, showing, selling or distributing their work, presented through actual artistic practice.
Each film comprises an interview with an artist about their work, with an overview of the legal implications of their practice by Henry Lydiate, art legal specialist and author of the Artlaw articles. The films can be viewed here.
The films show how artists respond to and overcome different legal problems in their practice – appropriating other people’s work, using out-of-copyright material, protecting their work from commercial abuse and working with commissioners – with links to other resources that can help if you encounter the same issues.
ArtlawTV was supported by Arts Council England.
