“When we asked five artists to describe how business and consumption culture have invaded their lives and tehir work, we didn’t really know what to expect.  Artists are, of course, mavericks.  But that’s the thing: we didn’t want to hear the same old rhetoric about lean, mean arts funding bodies and the evils of corporate sponsorship.  We wanted to know – on a personal level – what it means to bea n artist when the the value of art is measured almost entirely by the bottom line.  Here’s what they told us.”
