Join CAC and Mana Contemporary for a special workshop on critical copyright issues.In conjunction with the Chicago Artists Resource video series Survival Guide, this legal workshop will explore the critical issue of intellectual property protections. Referencing the Erró: American Comics exhibition currently up at Mana Contemporary, Patrice Perkins will examine the 2010 lawsuit filed against Icelandic artist Erró by Tank Girl creator Brian Bolland as a case study in the nuances of copyright law for artists. The workshop will introduce participants to the process of identifying and implementing copyright protection needs for their creative practice and other intellectual property issues. Advance Registration is recommended, but not required. As part of CAC's partnership with Mana Contemporary, we can ensure that Mana's core group of artists are able to attend at no cost, just as we do for CAC resident artists (BOLT, HATCH, and LAUNCH).
