The fast pace and changing environment of the world we do business in means that organizations and people must shift the way they think, plan and operate – from local to global, from traditional to automated, from domestic to outsourced, from one generation to the next.
In the art world, a similar process occurs: artists use raw materials transforming them into works of beauty. The creative journey is ongoing, ever evolving. The matter is transfigured and given meaning, often portraying a set of values, a culture, a moment in time, a place.
In reality, the art world and the world of business are intrinsically linked. The parallels that can be drawn between the two is what led Rogers Capital to support an exceptional project curated by THE THIRD DOT: the vanguardist exhibition, METAFORM, goes back to basics. The artists captured the three-dimensional space of the world in which we inhabit, moving beyond form and demonstrating in the process that evolution is the key to sustainable progress. The exhibition, which took place in the mezzanine of Rogers House provided a platform of expression for local talent as well as feeding the public’s hunger for cultural and artistic initiatives
There is extensive literature (Costello 1998, Stanziola 1999, Walesh 2001, Goss 2000, etc…) corelating arts with social capital creation and better community cohesion. Cities with a higher concentration of cultural and artistic activities tend to exhibit better civil engagement, stronger social bonds, as well as lower crime and unemployment rates. Through our art patronage, we aim to foster creativity, dynamism and cultural diversity within the Mauritian community. We help our local artists evolve and project their influence on our environment.
