Abstract

In Britain, developments at the sharp end of arts management have been intensely controversial. Artists and arts workers have been highly critical of the way that management techniques have been imported into their organizations from the corporate sector, often with counterproductive consequences. Acknowledging their concerns, this paper argues that exchanges between management and the arts can usefully be developed in a two-way rather than predominantly passive or one-way fashion, with arts and other organizations drawing managerial value directly from artistic traditions and creative practices. En Grande-Bretagne, les dernières tendances en matière de gestion des arts ont soulevé de vives controverses. Artistes et artisans ont fortement critiqué l'adoption par leurs organismes des techniques de gestion utilisées dans les entreprises en raison de leurs effets souvent contre-productifs. Sensibles à ces préoccupations, les auteurs avancent la thèse selon laquelle les échanges entre la gestion et les arts peuvent se développer efficacement de manière bi-directionnelle plutôt que foncièrement passive ou à sens unique, les organismes culturels et autres tirant une valeur managériale directement des traditions artistiques et des pratiques créatrices. Los movimientos ocurridos en la vanguardia de la gestión de las artes en Gran Bretaña han sido altamente polémicos. Artistas y demás trabajadores del arte por igual han criticado vivamente la forma en que se han aplicado a sus organizadones -a menudo deforma contraproducente- las técnicas de gestión utilizadas en el sector empresario. Los autores de este trabajo reconocen estas preocupadones y sostienen que puede ser mucho más fructífero reemplazar esta reladón eminentemente pasiva, o unidrecdonal, entre la gestión y el arte por una donde exista un verdadero intercambio en ambos sentidos, donde las organizadones artísticas y de otro tipo extraigan sus valores de gestión directamente de las tradidones artísticas y las actividades creativas.
