This show looks pretty cool: Ben Schumacher “New York City Farm Tower” at Bortolami Gallery, New York

Bortolami is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition with Ben Schumacher. Schumacher transforms the gallery into a staging ground for a submission to the New York City Farm Tower architectural competition, the outcome of which could potentially be realized on 19th street and 10th Avenue, one block away from Bortolami.

CAA Publishes Free Copyright Guide For Arrists

Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts

The College Art Association has issued a guide for people working in the visual arts to help navigate the complicated areas of sampling, borrowing, and appropriation. Here is a synopsis from the guide’s introduction:

The Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts is based on a consensus of professionals in the visual arts who use copyrighted images, texts, and other materials in their creative and scholarly work and who, through discussion groups, identified best practices for using such materials. They included art and architectural historians, artists, designers, curators, museum directors, educators, rights and reproduction officers, and editors at scholarly publishers and journals.

It looks like this could be a great teaching tool and give students and teachers a starting point for investigating this constantly shifting legal landscape.
