Artists as Entrepreneurs

Summer 2021

Taught By: Austin Thomas

Section: A

CRN: 2808

Credits: 3

A shifting economy has forced artists to be more creative—in business, technique, and craft —to sustain their careers. Contemporary creatives work both inside and outside their studios and workspaces. Many curate exhibitions, manage alternative art spaces, write criticism, and actively engage the diverse voices of their communities. They are creating new opportunities for presenting art and simultaneously effecting social change. In this class, we examine artists’ careers and identify aesthetic currents by touring studios and alternative spaces, viewing exhibitions, and reading both mainstream and underground art writing. Students will be introduced to a multi-generational spectrum of artists, curators, and writers, exploring how the art world has changed over the last fifty years.
