Abstract
Research indicates that hybrid ventures face more complex
challenges than other ventures, due to multiple institutional logics. Institutional

especially over time. The article explores challenges of art ventures related to
such tensions through a multiple case study. A conclusion from the study is that
tension and conflicts are unavoidable as ventures grow or reach a stabilisation
phase, in art ventures as in other organisations. Art ventures as hybrid

such tensions through a multiple case study. A conclusion from the study is that
tension and conflicts are unavoidable as ventures grow or reach a stabilisation
phase, in art ventures as in other organisations. Art ventures as hybrid
organisations need to balance artistic, managerial and political logics if they are
to be successful. There is a need for more research on art entrepreneurship, in
particular as regards similarities and differences in relation to venturing in other
fields. (Less)
