Kress Foundation Awards CAA Grant for Fair Use in the Visual Arts

This just in via our good friend, Nate Harrison.

The Samuel H. Kress Foundation has awarded the College Art Association a start-up grant to support the development of a Code of Best Practices for Fair Use of Copyrighted Images in the Creation and Curation of Artworks and Scholarly Publishing in the Visual Arts. According to CAA, the project will address all areas of the visual arts and involve participants from the fields of art history, studio art, print and online publishing, art museums and related areas.

I’m curious to see what comes out of this. Seriously. I may be mistaken, but I see that they have curators, professors, and lawyers on the task force, but completely fail to include at least one visual artist that has an actual practice of appropriation. A few artists of this kind would bring, in my opinion, a very welcome — and hopefully diverse — perspective.
