Incorporating Culture: Corporate Patronage of Art and Architecture in the
United States

While examples of both governmental patronage and private commissions of art
and architecture in the United States have been well documented, the history
of corporate commissions has not received the same degree of critical
attention. This session invites papers which explore examples of corporate
patronage of art and architecture addressing a wide variety of media from
any moment in American history. Papers can consider, but certainly are not
limited to, the following themes: corporate modernism; corporate sponsorship
of exhibitions and partnerships with cultural institutions; corporate art
collections; collaborations between corporate entities and artists or
architects; commercial commissions such as fashion, illustrations,
advertisements, and industrial design; corporate commissions that engage
communities in both private and public spaces; examples of resistance,
debate, and controversy surrounding corporate commissions; and how the
history of corporate commissions has changed attitudes towards art’s
relationship to capital, commodities, and the market.

Information about SECAC, abstract guidelines, and abstract submission
procedure available at: http://www.secollegeart.org/annual-conference.html

Please follow all SECAC guidelines and send proposal form and cv to both
session chairs no later than APRIL 20, 2011:

Thank you,
