Tyler Professor Gerard Brown leads a panel discussion with Sharon Louden, Hrag Vartanian, and Deana Haggag covering a range of topics, including: Identifying and communicating assets and skills common to the artists studio practice that are useful to mean of creating value for industrial partners. These assets include, among others, the capacity to utilize failure productively, and cultural reciprocity, an acute awareness of the use of cultural exchange for growth. The inherently collaborative nature of artistic disciplines in contrast to myths of individual, autonomous creative work. The ways in which artists, who routinely produce something from nothing, can contribute to the discussion of quantifying success.
