What is it that makes a great space for art? Should architecture be subservient to art? Or should it make a statement of its own? How do the needs of public museums differ from those of commercial galleries, private museums and homes?
Bringing together major architects and designers in conversation with their museum, collector and artist clients, we will explore today’s most challenging and innovative projects.
Hosted by Alice Rawsthorn, speakers include David Adjaye, Kirsty Bell,Martino Gamper, Stephanie MacDonald (6a Architects), Gabriel Orozco,Michael Govan, Annabelle Selldorf, Francis Upritchard and Peter Zumthor.
The event aims to attract any museum director or art collector looking to commission architecture, or anyone curious about how artists and curators envision architecture for art.
