India lacks the practice of the disciplinary regime of laws relating to the arts and antiquities. Whether it is the authenticity of a work of art to wrongful attribution, incorrect provenance documentation / representation to the absence of contracts, stolen works of art to an unregulated art market – the issues are varied and each deserving of urgent redressal.  This arena which is raw and unchartered, requires a vision, thinking, and absolute dedication. A vision that will combine the intellectual powers and activism of the members of the art world as well as the legal fraternity to build a more reliable and consistent system. Tomorrow, 3.30 pm, UNESCO, New Delhi is launching the digital release of the informative, 'Legal Handbook for the Artist Community in India'.
