> Corporate Curation
> 25th September, 6.00-7.30pm at the Forest Centre Plus, 38 Castle
> Terrace, EH3 9JD, Edinburgh.
> As the art world adjusts after the economic crisis and a series of
> funding cuts to the state arts budget, assistance from big business is
> increasingly sought to subsidise cultural production. At a time when
> many 'emerging artists' are not receiving fair pay for their labour,
> shouldn't we welcome more investment in the arts, whether the source
> is public or private? And should we expect big business sponsorship to
> alter the autonomy of the artist any more or less than the state would?
> Looking at Google's recent 'Dev Art' exhibition at the Barbican Centre
> in London through the frame of a wider historical view on systems of
> arts patronage, Corporate Curation will contextualise the current
> neoliberal frameworks of cultural entrepeneurialism and the role big
> business should play in the arts.
> With talks by Jake Watts and Dave Young, followed by an open forum for
> collective debate.
