Art for Tomorrow takes place on June 5-7, 2024 in Venice, Italy at the Palazzo Diedo, owned and newly renovated by the Berggruen Institute. The “floating city” is an appropriate setting to consider the complex problems that beauty can bring: How can cities and cultural sites  celebrate their heritage without becoming victims of their own success through overtourism? How can museums and monuments protect themselves from the inevitable impact of the climate crisis? How should institutions and artists think about and reflect the concerns of their changing populations? 

These are just a few of the questions we’ll consider at Art for Tomorrow, in a rich program with sessions moderated by New York Times journalists. Underpinning it all will be the central question of how the arts can unite and heal.

Topics include:

  • The Arts as the Ultimate Mediator
  • Architecture for Good: Can Transformation Be Designed?
  • AI and Creativity: Revolution or Disruption?
  • Sustainability and the Pitfalls of Beauty
  • Identity Crisis: Museums and Social Change
