Hello, I am an artist...(this is a question for the Rebecca Belmore legal Fund)











The gallery who did not pay Rebecca Belmore her due for the sale of artwork was in Serious Breach of Contract which gives the artist the Legal Right to Terminate the Contract...I don't see how anyone could see this differently...This is a clear cut case of serious breach of contract with commensurate right to terminate said contract...The nuisance lawsuit the gallery has filed is just to obfuscate this fact & damages are owed the artist for costs relating to the nuisance lawsuit that followed...All monies related to winning this case should be paid by the gallery to any lawyers & other costs...There should be absolutely no costs to the artist when this is over...







Hello...I am an artist...I was wondering if I could read somewhere about the nitty gritty aspects of this atrocity...I can't seem to find any details about how much money Pari Nadimi owed the artist for the two years of non-disclosure of the sale...& if & when that money will be paid...Galleries not disclosing sales nor paying artists has become quite common, compounded with this ridiculous notion that anything more than a one third cut to the gallery for arranging a consignment sale, is not too much...I, like many other older artists, remember a time when one third was the golden rule for gallery commissions...A consignment sale requires no money up front & hence, never before has deserved a wholesale discount (50)...No business person in their right mind gives a 50 off discount without an upfront volume sale- why artists are bending down to take this scrap is beyond me...The fact that the gallery is suing an artist who was stolen from just shows how low gallerists have descended into the slimy dungeon of corruption...This is an embarrassment to all gallerists & a travesty & I suggest that all artists quit their galleries in a show of moral support...
