Harvard Business School paper: It Is Okay for Artists to Make Money

Posted in Music by Dy Allo on June 26, 2009

oh, reallly??!? lol. thought that this was obvious. but here:



In this paper, we examine the apparent conflict between artistic and commercial objectives within 

creative companies, taking as our point of departure a particularly energetic debate during a 

symposium at the 2007 Academy of Management meetings. We surface the assumptions that 

underlie such debates, compare them with findings from our research on creative industries, and 

identify three “fallacies” that sometimes enter into discussions of art in relation to money. This, in 

turn, leads us to propose a framework to support more productive discussion and to describe a 

direction for management research that might better integrate art and business practices. We 

conclude that despite an inclination to take offense that often attends the close juxtaposition of art 

and commerce, which was very much in evidence at that AoM symposium in Philadelphia, the 

interests of art, artists, and business can be best served if more commerce enters into the world of 

art, not less.
