About the Summit
New Ways of Seeing: Art & Architecture in a Changing World
The way that we look at art is changing. So are the spaces in which we encounter it. The circulation of images has been fundamentally affected by digital technologies and social media; our expectations of how art responds to, and agitates within, the world has been shaped by political upheavals, questions of social justice and the looming threat of environmental catastrophe; museums have become social spaces as much as galleries. As traditional definitions are expanded or pulled apart, what do we want from our cultural institutions? From the most innovative new museum spaces, to studios looking to traditional methods for sustainable design, to way the selfie is shaping exhibition making, leading figures from the worlds of art, architecture and technology come together for a day of interdisciplinary conversations about ‘good’ design – and why it matters.
