All sales of the contemporary artworks from this auction are subject to Artist’s Resale Rights (ARR). Aspire Art Auctions is the first and, to date, the only auction house in South Africa to pay living South African artists royalties on the resale of their works on its auctions.  In the absence of legislation, Aspire voluntarily covers the cost of the ARR percentage fee. The ARR initiative is an investment back into the industry, acknowledging the value of authorship and ensuring support for artists. To date, Aspire Art Auctions has paid almost R400 000 in royalties to more than 90 living South African artists.
