Dialogues between Art and Business Book Excerpt:

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.

This book explores the dedication of the New American Colleges & Universities to the purposeful integration of liberal education, professional studies, and civic engagement through the performing, literary, and visual arts.

Nurturing Creativity in the Classroom is a groundbreaking collection of essays by leading scholars, who examine and respond to the tension that many educators face in valuing student creativity but believing that they cannot support it given the curricular constraints of the classroom. Is it possible for teachers to nurture creative development and expression without drifting into curricular chaos? Do curricular constraints necessarily lead to choosing conformity over creativity? This book combines the perspectives of top educators and psychologists to generate practical advice for considering and addressing the challenges of supporting creativity within the classroom. It is unique in its balance of practical recommendations for nurturing creativity and thoughtful appreciation of curricular constraints. This approach helps ensure that the insights and advice found in this collection will take root in educators' practice, rather than being construed as yet another demand placed on their overflowing plate of responsibilities.

Corporate Cultural Responsibility Book Excerpt:

Is corporate investing in the arts and culture within communities good business? Written by an expert on the topic who ran the Corporate Art Program at Johnson & Johnson, the book sets out the case for business patronage of the arts and culture and demonstrates how to build an effective program for businesses to follow. As companies seek new ways to add value to society, this book places business support of the arts in a corporate social responsibility context and offers a new concept: Corporate Cultural Responsibility. It discusses the issues underlying business support of the arts and explores new avenues of collaboration and value creation. The framework presented in the book serves as a guide for identifying the key attributes and projected impact of successful and sustainable models. Unlike other books centered on the relationship of art and commerce, this book looks at the broader and global implications of Corporate Cultural Responsibility. It also usefully sets the discussion about the role of philanthropy and corporate social responsibility and the arts within an historical timeframe. As the first book to link culture to community responsibility, the book will be of particular relevance to corporate art advisors and auction houses, as well as students of arts management and corporate social responsibility at advanced undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Aesthetics and Business Ethics Book Excerpt:

Ludwig Wittgenstein famously said, “Ethics is aesthetics.” It is unclear what such a claim might mean and whether it is true. This book explores contentious issues arising at the interface of ethics and aesthetics. The contributions reflect on the status of aesthetic en ethical judgments, the relation of aesthetic beauty and ethical goodness and art and character development. The book further considers the potential role art could play in ethical analysis and in the classroom and explores in what respects aesthetics and ethics might be intertwined and even mutually supportive.
