DACS works with leading brands around the world to license artworks by our members, ensuring vital royalties go back to artists and their estates and artists' rights are protected.

We recently licensed the work of our members to be featured as part of catalogues and merchandise for exhibitions taking place at Tate, the Royal Academy of Arts and the Sainsbury Centre.

We work closely with hundreds of artists and estates and our collaborations are immeasurably enriched by our alliance with DACS. Working behind the scenes, DACS seamlessly handles copyright clearance, as we work to find new and creative ways to showcase our collections and the artists. We share DACS' ethos of supporting and empowering artists and their rights and our work greatly benefits from their expertise and guidance.

DACS licensed the work of Sonia Boyce and Frank Bowling, for the exhibition catalogue of the show ‘Entangled Pasts, 1768–now: Art, Colonialism and Change’, at the Royal Academy of Arts.

The show exhibits over 100 major contemporary and historical works as part of a conversation about art and its role in shaping narratives of empire, enslavement, resistance, abolition and colonialism – and how it may help set a course for the future. Informed by the RA’s ongoing research of its colonial past, this exhibition engages around 50 artists connected to the institution to explore themes of migration, exchange, artistic traditions, identity and belonging.

You can view the exhibition until 28 April 2024.
