Cartier Art Dialogues

Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi

Spaces of encounter, forums of dialogue, museums host the most important conversations of culture: relaying the histories of the past, inspiring new visions of the future.
Architecture and art together co-construct an aura that transcends our impression of the museum space. This year’s panelists will assemble to consider the role of the museum in encouraging such interactions and radiating creativity.
Join us for the Cartier Art Dialogues, a day of captivating conversations with a panel of leading museum experts, architects and artists around the theme: The Museum: A Modern Agora.
