Amar Singh, Art patron and activist, London

Patrons fulfil a serious need for artists, and most pride themselves on being rooted in what artists think is meaningful. Here, speakers discuss their beginnings, nimbleness, relationship with artists, galleries and the public, artist residencies, and the impact they have had and newly would like to have, their relations with public museums and their own institutions, and more.
