New sources of arts management: co-designing emerging artistic fields. The case of artistic gardening

Abstract : There has been a growing interest in the field of “arts management” and the extensive literature has helped to develop models for managing arts organizations. These models may be summarized in what is called the model of “Arts Administration”. Indeed scholars have basically investigated established “art worlds”, considering that art referred to a “given field”, and have then appointed the manager to administer it. In this paper we focus on emerging “art worlds” since they have been disregarded by the traditional literature on arts management. As recent works demonstrate it, when art can hardly be considered as a “given field”, the role of the manager cannot be reduced to traditional “administration”. Drawing on these premises, we suggest a design-based model to conceptualize the deep links between art and management in emerging “art worlds”. To validate it, we investigate an in-depth and longitudinal single case study of a firm operating in the field of artistic gardening. A new agenda for the managers of art-based firms comes out from the case study. It suggests rethinking the collaboration between artist and manager no longer as “cohabitation” but also as “co-generation”.
