DACS celebrates launch of the inaugural Ousmane Sow Resale Right Award.

    DACS joins with collecting societies around the world to celebrate the inaugural Ousmane Sow Resale Right Award from CISAC which has this year been presented in partnership with the Government of Senegal at the Dakar Biennal.

    The award honours CISAC’s former Vice-President, sculptor Ousmane Sow and celebrates artistic and aesthetic work while focussing attention on the resale right for visual artists and the importance of collective management societies across the Africa region. This year the award was presented to Senegalese artist Abdoulaye Ka, in the presence of the Senegal President Macky Sall.

    The Artist's Resale Right, granting artists a share of the proceeds when their works are re-sold by art market professionals, is a key global priority for CISAC. The right allows artists to maintain a long-term association with their works and share fairly in the commercial success achieved after the first sale by the artist.

    The Dakar Biennal (Dak’Art) is the pre-eminent contemporary arts festival in the Africa region. The award seeks to sustain the call of Ousmane Sow, a former ADAGP member and CISAC Vice President from 2012 to 2016. The award will be celebrated every two years during each edition of the Dakar Biennal.

    More information is available on CISAC.
