Arts and Business aims at bringing arts and business scholars together in a dialogue about a number of key topics that today form different understandings in the two disciplines. Arts and business are, many times, positioned as opposites. Where one is providing symbolic and aesthetic immersion, the other is creating goods for a market and markets for a good. They often deal and struggle with the same issues, framing it differently and finding different solutions. This book has the potential of offering both critical theoretical and empirical understanding of these subjects and guiding further exploration and research into this field. Although this dichotomy has a well-documented existence, it is reconstructed through the writing-out of business in art and vice versa. This edited volume distinguishes itself from other writings aimed at closing the gap between art and business, as it does not have a firm standpoint in one of these fields, but treating them as symmetrical and equal. The belief that by giving art and business an equal weight, the editors also create the opportunity to communicate to a wider audience and construct a path forward for art and business to coexist.

Fine artists are taught many things about the craft of art in the various art schools and university art programs, but rarely do they learn much if anything about how to make a career of their talents. The Business of Being an Artist contains information on how artists may develop a presence in the art world that leads to sales. The book contains information on how artists can learn to sell their work directly to the public with an understanding of the principles of marketing and sales as they're applicable to works of art. Artists will also learn how to find a suitable gallery that will arrange sales and commissions and how to set up a contractual relationship with the dealer that is both equitable and profitable. Among the topics covered in The Business of Being an Artist are: the range of exhibition opportunities for emerging and mid-career artists; how to set prices for artwork; when or if artists should pay to advance their careers; how artists may communicate with the public; applying for loans, grants, and fellowships; areas of the law that concern artists; using art materials safely; online sales and marketing, and much more. In addition to all of this priceless information, The Business of Being an Artist includes a unique discussion of some of the emotional issues that face artists throughout their careers, such as working alone, confronting stereotypes, handling criticisms and rejection, the glare of publicity, and the absence of attention. Without a doubt, The Business of Being an Artist is a must-have book for every artist ready to turn their talent into a successful business.

The relationship between the fine art and the business sphere has never been harmonious; it has been rejected, fought about, ignored, exploited, criticised and questioned, but it is still omnipresent. Commonly assumed to be antagonistic, situating art and the business organisation sphere in the discourses of new knowledge creation and learning, however, holds the potential of exploring new ways of relating the two spheres. This book investigates such potentialities, discussing the limits and challenges of these new forms of relating. It does so by first outlining the changing discourses of the art and business spheres, and how they produce different ways of relating to their respective worlds. Second, it brings into conversation an ethnographic study of an art-business-collaboration organised by two artists with a Deleuzian concept of dialogue. Dialogue, here, is understood as a non-hierarchical encounter developing between two spheres; a source of creation no longer belonging to anyone. In what is here termed “a machinic research framework” – accounting for composition and movement on all scales – the book shows how making connections is a discursive and material practice with expectations and imaginaries playing a central role. It also addresses the paradoxical interplays between losing control and maintaining control in collaborative attempts, between reaching out for the Other and carrying out identity work, and between positions in the centre and in the margins of the highly stratified and codified areas of business organisations and fine art. Eventually, this book examines small dialogical instances that escape the stratifying forces dividing the two worlds, thereby creating a temporary space. It closes with a reflection on the role of research in thinking (and making) new ways of relating the world of fine art and the business organisation sphere.
