Art and Economy
Library Shelf Location 05.HENT
Publication Date 2002
Description Globalization expands and contracts daily, as art and artists cross and recross borders. Motorcycles, fashion houses, and vacuum cleaners find themselves exhibited in art museums, complete with their corporate identities intact. Corporate collections grow in size and influence, while Saatchi & Saatchi and Altoids Curiously Strong Mints roll off gallery-goers' tongues. Art & Economy gathers together essays which take a variety of stands on these multiple interrelations, as well as on artists whose work deals directly with our economic reality, such as Access Local, Liam Gillick, Eva Grubinger, and Peter Zimmerman. It goes without saying that this book is a good deal.
