Seminar // Should Artists Be Entrepreneurs?

Should artists embrace, subvert or actively resist the mounting pressure to adopt entrepreneurial approaches? What are the potential or consequences of this trend internationally and for Norway?

Panellists include* Jeremy Bailey* (artist Canada), Nora O’Murchu (lecturer, researcher and curator at the Interaction Design Centre in the University of Limerick) and Ruben Steinum (artist and Chair of the Board of UKS).

Jeremy Bailey’s inventive and endearingly self-deflating performance practice has long delt with the mechanisms and promses of technolgy and business. With almost a decade of experience working in start up culture, his work has recently seen this professional experience merging with his artistic output. Bailey’s work has featured in an international roster of venues and festivals, including the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Tate Liverpool; Whitechapel Gallery, London; Transmediale, Berlin; Museums Quartier, Vienna; and the New Museum, New York.

Nora O’Murchu is this year’s curator of Resonate. O’Murchu is a lecturer, researcher and curator at the Interaction Design Centre in the University of Limerick. She has a degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering from NuiGalway and received her Masters in Interactive Media from the University of Limerick in 2008.

Ruben Steinum is an artist and co-founder of the digital art sales platform Atelier, as well as chairman of the board of the Young Artists Society (UKS) and a board member of Norwegian Visual Artists (NBK). In his artistic practice, he works with object-based sculpture, drawing and photography. His interest in pop and everyday culture comes to light through the use of commercial objects, appropriation of brands and in the relationship between the artwork and the title. He has exhibited at Elephant Kunsthall (Lillehammer), Tidens Krav (Oslo), Arts Incubator at Washington Park (Chicago), Kunsthall Oslo, Podium (Oslo), Rogaland Art Center (Stavanger) and RAKE (Trondheim).
