Art Entrepreneurship

Edited by Mikael Scherdin, Assistant Professor and Ivo Zander, Anders Wall Professor of Entrepreneurship, Uppsala University, Sweden
This pioneering book explores creative and entrepreneurial processes as they are played out in the field of art. Nine original chapters by an international group of scholars take a detailed look at the sources of new art ideas, how they are transformed into tangible objects of art, make their way through often hostile selection environments, and ultimately go on to become valued and accepted by the general public. Making a number of original contributions at the crossroads of art and entrepreneurship, the book speaks to researchers across these fields, practicing artists interested in promoting and gaining acceptance for their work, as well as policymakers concerned with sustained dynamics of the art arena.

This pioneering book explores the connections between art and artistic processes and entrepreneurship. The authors expertly identify several areas and issues where research on art and artistic processes can inform and develop the traditional field of entrepreneurship research.
