Session 136: “The Artist’s Contract” by Seth Siegelaub
During this Theory Tuesdays session, Rémi Jaccard presented “The Artist’s Reserved Rights Transfer And Sale Agreement” by Seth Siegelaub from 1971.
“In the seminal Artist’s Reserved Rights, Transfer and Sale Agreement, drafted in 1971 with the lawyer, Bob Projansky, the legendary Conceptual art dealer and curator, Seth Siegelaub created a model contract for artists to protect their economic and authorial rights when selling their work. This legal document/manifesto also known as The Artist’s Contract (which would prove to be Siegelaub’s final gesture as a dealer/curator) contains many controversial and forward-looking conditions.” -Daniel McClean
