Collector Talk | Beyond Collecting: What is Patronage?

Pamela Joyner, Füsun Eczacıbaşı, and Mark Rappolt

A frank conversation among art collectors who have for years been expanding their participation in art in very different ways. After acquiring hundreds of artworks, engaging in on-going dialogues with artists, gallerists, writers and other patrons, these individuals moved beyond collection building to affect art in various ways. What were the attractions and pitfalls as they set out to commission new works, open foundations, support museums and publications? In what other ways has their patronage-practice expanded?
