Report in The Age about the impact of the introduction of a new law under the Australian Heritage Act 2006 which adds a fee for each artefact that is sold.
Quoted from the article:
Leading art auction houses say that changes to Victorian heritage laws affecting the sale of indigenous art are forcing them to conduct sales in Sydney, robbing Melbourne, where they traditionally occur, of national and international interest.
As a signatory to the Indigenous Art Code we are committed to ethical and transparent business dealings with Indigenous visual artists and abide by the standards set out in the Code.
