Curated by The Third Dot
The clear reflection of the intrinsic nature of art in business endeavors makes the THIRD DOT a natural partner for Rogers Capital. The THIRD DOT exposition for 2019 titled – Intertwined – focuses on the expressive language of color. It uses color to illustrate the likeness and divergences between the perceptions of young and older artists. This is also a common thread in business where different views come together to create a unified and more resilient approach to challenges. Our support of the art exhibition aims to support local artists and help develop art as an alternative form of investment and asset class.
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 local artists through our Art Patronage.
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.
