Indigenous Art Code Membership - Ensuring Transparency

Indigenous Art Code Membership - Ensuring Transparency

A Proud Member of the IAC since 2013

Recycled Mats is proud to have been an accepted member of the IAC since August 2013:

As a signatory to the Indigenous Art Code we are committed to ethical and transparent business dealings with Indigenous visual artists and abide by the standards set out in the Code.

The purpose of the Code is to establish standards for dealings between Dealers and Artists to ensure:

  • (a) fair and ethical trade in Artwork;
  • (b) transparency in the process of promotion and sale of Artwork; and
  • (c) that disputes arising under the Code are dealt with efficiently and fairly.

How was the Indigenous Art Code developed:

The INDIGENOUS ART CODE (the Code) was developed in the first instance by the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA) and then by the Australia Council for the Arts, who worked closely with an Industry Alliance Group made up of artists, Indigenous art centres, commercial art galleries, public art galleries, auction houses and visual arts peak bodies; including the Association of Northern, Kimberley and Arnhem Aboriginal Artists, Umi Arts, Ananguku Arts, Desart, Australian Commercial Galleries Association, NAVA and the Australian Indigenous Art Trade Association.

The Indigenous Art Code acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of Country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to the land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures; and to their Elders past, present and future.
