    One thought on “Artwash: Big Oil and the Arts”

    1. I bought this book shortly after it was published and finally sat down to read it, but found myself incredibly disappointed. I largely agree with the premise—that corporate sponsorship in the arts can have concerning implications in everything from the public perception of museums to the shaping of narratives presented in exhibitions to the impact on funding from other sources.

    3. I won this book in the First Reads Giveaway.I appreciate just how much hard work the author had put into writing this book, but must admit that it did rather go over my head.

    4. I won this book in the First Reads Giveaway.I appreciate the work the author had put into writing this book, but must admit that the book itself wasn't my type of thing after all But no complaints!! I shall be passing this book on to someone who will appreciate and understand it more!Glad to of won the book though!

    5. Artwash: Big Oil and the Arts: Big Oil and the Arts reviews the effects oil money donated to cultural institutions has on both parties, the way even artists have contested the morality of modern art galleries and how the latter might evolve.It is a truthful and detailed take on the reality involving the world of artists and business

    6. Great to read this after Tate dropped BP sponsorship and also an interesting case study around corporate sponsorship
