Day 2 and it's a wrap for Art for Tomorrow
The second and final day of the International New York Times Art for Tomorrow conference 2015 was a memorable success!
A grand total of 18 panellists, 45 key speakers and 520 guests attended the conference that took place at the W Hotel Doha from 14th to 16th March, discussing art and culture, museums, and cities of the future.
Ali Güreli, the founder and chairman of the mammoth Contemporary Istanbul, talked about the importance of art in the city of Istanbul and announced that in 2016, three new museums will open in the city.
An impressive panel line up of Victoria Siddall, Ali Gureli, Savita Apte and Hans Ulrich Obrist discussed art fairs and their importance as a cultural experience beyond sales of art works. Did you know Frieze began as a magazine in 1991 and contained the first ever interview with Damien Hirst?!
And that's a wrap for Art for Tomorrow 2015! For us at QM, we've thoroughly enjoyed the discussions and are left inspired by how culture and creativity are essential to cities!
