As our innate desire to invent and play is monetized with ever-greater efficiency, the emergence of blockchain technology – and the revival of cyber-utopianism that has accompanied it – promises an incessantly expanding field of creativity that merges imaginative and financial forms of speculation.

Business art is the art that comes after art. – Andy Warhol

What would such a domain engender? And what are the appearances and sensations of Web3’s precursors, here and now, at the peculiar everyday confluence of the body and social media?

Framing the contemporary quotidian as a triangulation of bodies, objects, and their digital mediation, Business Art convenes the blood, sweat, and tears figuratively and sometimes immediately present in all forms of labor to amplify and glitch the 21st century’s consolidation of art, life, and business.
