This submission looks into the inauthentic selling of Indigenous ‘style’ artwork and looks into the many different channels through which non Indigenous people are able to sell Indigenous art without the permission of the Indigenous artists. It also briefly mentions the Katter Bill 2017 in relation to the exploitation of Indigenous culture and also focusses on the Fake Art Harms Culture campaign.

In this submission to the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Indigenous Affairs, Professor Altman explains his concerns about the increasing presence of inauthentic Indigenous ‘style’ artwork and how it can damage Indigenous culture.
