Presented by Annie Briard

May 26, 2019, 10am – 1pm

annie-briardMany an artist with a few years under their belt has unfortunate stories to share involving legal matters. What should be done if your image is appropriated? What happens if a gallery loses your work? How can you protect yourself when embarking upon a work commission? This workshop will delve into important legal information for all artists, from copyright basics to contracts.

Annie Briard (BFA, MFA) has extensive teaching experience including as an Instructor in the undergraduate program at Emily Carr University where she teaches studio art, theory and professional practice courses. Since 2015, she has been the Public Engagement Progammer at ECUAD and previously was the Director at CARFAC. Her solo exhibitions have been presented across Canada and she has participated in shows internationally, including at the Three Shadows Photography Centre (Beijing), Lincoln Film Centre (NYC), the Switzerland Architecture Museum (Basel), Matadero Madrid, among many others. Her public art projects have been commissioned by the Vancouver Art Gallery, Capture Photography Festival, the city of New Westminster, the city of Victoria and others.
