Arts philanthropy is at a crucial moment: many arts organisations are facing a financial crisis, the 2020-21 Covid-19 pandemic exposed the fragility of existing funding structures, and various social initiatives and causes have thrown renewed focus on how the arts are funded. Around the world, a new generation of philanthropists is emerging with different motivations and priorities. This book offers an open and wide-ranging exploration of philanthropy in the arts from the perspectives of both the donors and the recipients, seeking to improve understanding on both sides, and asks what the future holds for arts philanthropy given the rapidly changing landscape. It provides an essential guide for collectors, philanthropists and patrons, as well as art-market and museum professionals, on the peculiarities of giving and taking in the arts sector.
