Guide for Museums and Galleries Hosting Exhibitions that include Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP)
This information sheet is designed to give best practice guidance to museums and galleries when they exhibit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art as part of a touring exhibition. This information sheet may also be useful when preparing for any exhibition or display that includes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander creatives and culture.
Exhibiting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art often means sharing traditional knowledge and culture with the audience and participants of the exhibition. This sheet gives an overview of the rights that artists have in their art, including their Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP). Please ensure that any questions that may arise from this information sheet are initially asked of the tour organiser, as they may already have agreements in place with the artists, community or representatives that can be passed on to you.
