Patron of Art Edition 2012 Joseph II - Spain

Winner: Leopoldo Rodés Castañé
Patronage: Fundación Arte y Mecenazgo

On May 29, 2012, the Montblanc de la Culture Arts Patronage Award for Spain was presented to Leopoldo Rodés Castañé, President of the MACBA Foundation, in recognition of the art patronage activities carried out by him on behalf of this organization.

Well before 1995, Leopoldo Rodés Castañé had envisaged and promoted the creation of a private foundation committed to endowing what would later become the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art with private funds. This gave rise to the MACBA Foundation, an organization set up for the purpose of transmitting, disclosing, fostering, developing and protecting contemporary art.

During its seventeen years of existence, Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art has become a pioneering institution in diffusing contemporary art and cultural practices and its impact has contributed to identifying Barcelona with a scenario of innovation.
