As the world undergoes unprecedented change – from the pandemic and its fallout, to racial unrest, to deepening social and economic inequalities – people are searching for meaning. By grappling with these issues, the arts can help define that meaning, frame it and inspire change.

The free Art for Tomorrow Talks ran in Doha, Qatar from November 19-21, 2021 (with the sessions available to view online on November 23, 2021). The event aimed to analyze that impact, exploring the effect the arts can and do have on society. Governments, institutions and the wider public are asking hard questions about the works they are showing, viewing or buying: Can and should collections be more inclusive? What are some specific instances in which the arts have ignited a movement or a policy shift? What is the interplay between politics and culture, and how has it evolved?

At the same time, the market is reeling from the swift economic slide. Fairs, galleries, museums and artists are experimenting with new business models, leading to serious hardship but also some new wellsprings of creativity. Technology has been a crucial driver of these changes.
In association with The New York Times, the carefully curated Art for Tomorrow Talks convened artists and experts to look closely at these issues, exploring the social and economic impact of art.

Potential sessions include:

  • Why The Arts Matter
  • Jeff Koons in Conversation
  • The Arts in Crisis Mode - Taking Stock
  • Identity and Art
  • Tech and the Arts: A Paradigm Shift?
