American Academy in Rome
40 pages

This issue of AAR Magazine celebrates the Academy’s 125th anniversary. The issue introduces nine Residents for fall 2019, reports on a November conference in Rome on the Academy’s influence on the arts and humanities, and recognizes Life Trustee Michael C. J. Putnam, professor emeritus of classics at Brown University and a Vergil specialist, whom the Paideia Institute recently honored.

A special two-page spread presents a selection of key moments in the Academy’s history since 1894 as a visual timeline; another spread describes Encounters I, the first of a two-part exhibition that features Fellows and Residents from the 1940s to the 1980s. The issue also highlights recent awards, exhibitions, and publications by those Fellows who have returned from the Eternal City, and provides a special look at Rome, through the eyes of a longtime member of the Academy Community.

This issue highlights recent work and collaborations by our Rome Prize winners and Italian Fellows. Because this year was the tenth anniversary of the Scharoun Ensemble Berlin in Rome, we reflect on how the concert series began. The spring issue also anticipates a solo show of new work by Yto Barrada, the Roy Lichtenstein Artist in Residence from last fall, which—along with the Patricia H. Labalme Friends of the Library Lecture by Mary Roberts in March and a conference on Islamic art and architecture in May—are the culminating events of East and West, the Academy’s thematic series of events for 2017–18.
