Patronage: Who Owns Culture? Rujeko Hockley, Stephanie Leone & John Marciari

This Conversations/Conversazioni explores the ways in which politics, capital, and power have influenced art and cultural production from the days of the Medici until now. Contemporary art curator Rujeko Hockley and art historian Stephanie Leone (2000 Fellow) join the American Academy of Rome to shed light on the importance of arts patronage and the fraught ethical nuances that come with it. This conversation, moderated by John Marciari (1998 Fellow), is free and open to the public.

Rujeko Hockley is the Arnhold Associate Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art. A specialist in Italian Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture with a focus on Rome, Stephanie Leone is professor of art history at Boston College. John Marciari is the Charles W. Engelhard Curator and Head of the Department of Drawings and Prints at the Morgan Library and Museum.

The Helen Frankenthaler Foundation generously supports Conversations/Conversazioni at the American Academy in Rome.

This event, presented in person at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York as well as on Zoom, was free and open to the public.
