The Art Business society welcomes students from all academic backgrounds, with all levels of artistic knowledge.
Those interested in Art will discover the impact of Business, and those interested in Business can explore the relevance of Art. To reflect this diverse range of interests, our society is composed of three pillars: Fine Art, Art in Business and Art in Technology.
Our interactive events and meet-ups are based around these key areas of interest. Find out more about what we do below!
Fine Art. We will study aesthetics, meanings, techniques and current trends within art. Activities include gallery visits where passionate gallerists talk us through the founding, choosing and organisation of the gallery. We also invite politically engaged artists to talks presenting their ideas on Art.
Art in Business. We explore the world of art trading, and look to expert insights on working in the industry. We also discuss fascinating questions about Art in Business. For example, is it ethical to treat Art purely as an investment? This division aims to introduce students to the range of careers in the art industry, and provides invaluable networking opportunities.
Art in Technology. The intersection of technology and art is provocative, and will change the landscapes of Business and Art. Our society introduces members to the mystified world of NFTs, virtual art and algorithmic art. This provides an opportunity to learn about and discuss technological techniques for both creativity and trade.
The society holds events regarding creation, inspiration, valuation and trade of these forms of Art. Join us to discover new career paths and uncover the future of the Art industry!
