Cody on Culture Jamming.
Thursday, Oct. 5th at 12:30-1:30
Feldman Gallery , PNCA
1241 NW Johnson
in conjunction with the exhibition Illegal Art on view until Oct 21.
Laws that were originally designed to protect creative types –
people like you – are now threatening cultural development.
Visiting artist Heidi Cody will discuss intellectual property and
the cultural commons, and how these ideas affect one another. Learn
about copyrights, trademarks and patents through examples and legal
case histories of artists who have tangled with the law. Understand
why artists are more likely to get sued for bashing Barbie than for
subvertising Starbucks. See how your Freedom of Expression®1 is
being curtailed by the corporate agenda. Learn about the
philosophical double-binds of “appropriation,” and how you can get
stolen from, too.
