Art For Tommorow - Doha, QATAR

  • W Hotel Corniche Promenade Doha, Doha Qatar (map)

Join us this March at The New York Times Art for Tomorrow Conference

March 12-15, 2016 | Doha, Qatar


▫           ▫           


Spectacular new museums and galleries are springing up around the world. But in an era of digitization can “bricks and mortar” institutions still contain the world of art? How will the digital and real art markets co-exist? What can museums do to reinvent themselves for a new generation?

Set against the striking cityscape of Doha, Art for Tomorrow brings together world-famous artists and architects, with leading museum directors, urban developers, policy-makers and financiers to address these critical issues and their impact on the creative cities of tomorrow.

Join us for inspiring talks, interviews and vibrant panel discussions led by New York Times journalists, and connect with influential peers at gallery events, behind-the-scenes tours and an exclusive gala evening.

Key Themes

·        The role of art in developing or regenerating a nation’s or city’s authentic identity

·        The impact of digital technology on the practice, dissemination and acquisition of art.

·        The rich and varied relationship between art and other creative disciplines such as fashion and music. Are the boundaries more blurred than ever before?

·        What is the civic responsibility of the collector in the digital age?

·        The future of the Museum, virtual or ‘real’, and its contribution to urban or wider cultural contexts
