Asia Week New York in partnership with The Winter Show is pleased to present the online video of our panel discussion, A Collecting Dynasty: The Rockefeller Family, here in the Webinars and Video section of our website.

For those of you who missed this in-person conversation with experts closely associated with the Rockefeller family during the Winter Show a few months ago, here is your chance to view this fascinating discussion on the legacy of the Rockefeller family, their remarkable collections, and lasting contributions to the world of art and antiques.

The video was also just named as a ‘Critic’s Pick’ by the editors of The New Criterion in their culture dispatch published this past Tuesday. Click here to read the article.

As passionate art collectors and philanthropists with an incredible range of interests that spanned the globe, the Rockefeller family in so many ways epitomizes the pinnacle of patronage in the country. Throughout several generations, beginning with Abby and John D Rockefeller, Jr., their unwavering support for the visual arts was critical to the development of many cultural institutions focused on the family members’ individual collecting interests, such as Asia Society, the Cloisters, Colonial Williamsburg and its Folk Art Museum, Japan Society, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art.

Panelists included:

Cynthia Bronson Altman, Independent Scholar, Kykuit Curator, 1992-2018
Michele Beiny Harkins, President Michele Beiny Inc.
Vishakha Desai, President Emerita, Asia Society, Senior Advisor for Global Affairs, Columbia University
Moderated by Joan B. Mirviss, President, Joan B Mirviss LTD and art historian
