"Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art." - Andy Warhol
Good Business is an exhibition curated by the artist collective known as Iowa Pop Art in collaboration with CSPS which features an array of work that both embraces and pushes against this premise put forth by Warhol. Every contemporary artist can attest to the ongoing tension created by the often opposed motives of creative expression and capitalistic adherence. What has become common, particularly in today's "gig economy", is artists balancing multiple styles in order to create multiple revenue streams all while trying to experiment and push boundaries in areas that may not have clear financial dividends.
The vast range of work exhibited here shows artists excelling in mediums in which they've honed and gained notoriety alongside pieces by those extending their reach into new disciplines.
