A very interesting post by Edwina Circuitt from Warakurna Artists Aboriginal Corporation about how they choose galleries to work with.
From the entry:
In my opinion there are really only about a dozen ethical galleries to choose from. The galleries we have selected do more than sell artwork and say they ‘love Aboriginal people’. The galleries we have chosen actively participate in promoting the importance of Aboriginal governed and owned Art Centres and the ethical treatment of Indigenous artists, they share and are aligned with our philosophy.
For example, our galleries have actively participated in the development of NAVA’s (National Association of the Visual Arts) Indigenous Australian Art Commercial Code of Conduct. In 2006-2007 NAVA worked with Desart and ANKAAA to develop an Indigenous Australian Art Commercial Code of Conduct.
