We all know that money doesn’t necessarily mean taste, and taste doesn’t necessarily earn you any money, but according to two three major corporate overlords (Goldman Sachs and IBM and Deutsche Bank) the artist of choice for big corporate capitalists is abstract artist Julie Mehretu.
First it was the Goldman Sachs mural for their new building in lower Manhattan — which people appear to be eager to touch — and now IBM is riffing off her style for an animate video about commercial data transportation. I wonder if it freaks Mehretu out a little that the big wigs in corporate America seem to “get” her.
I’m sensing a corporate zeitgeist kinda moment.
ALSO: I almost forgot Mehretu’s Deutsche Bank Series which is up at the Guggenheim Museum until October 6, 2010.
