Oh Yes!!! Thats what Art has become — BUSINESS — with all Capital letters. Hence move away all the art lovers, connoisseurs, afficionados as the corporates are showing their interest in art.
Although it’s a good sign, however I feel that with corporates learning the business of art, art is becoming just another business venture for them. Art is losing its senstivity and people in order to possess big names are buying blindly.
The whole concept of art is changing.
Admitted that corporates and big hotels are responsible for taking Indian art globaly, however they fail to realise that in making art as a lucrative business they are messing with the actual concept of art.
