Panel Talk – Edifice // Artifice – Redefining Art In The Public Realm

Wed 20th November, 17:30 – 19:30pm, Qatar National Library, Doha, Qatar

In 2019, developments in culture, architecture and creative technology prompt us to revisit the role of art, specifically, the evolving nature of art and the public realm in fast developing cities, and in a hyper-connected society.

Across cultures and throughout the ages, art has prevailed as a medium to better understand the world around us, inspiring new ways of thinking and public dialogue, often pushing aesthetic and conceptual boundaries beyond the ‘here and now’.

As part of ‘Reading the City’ (accompanying Naho Matsuda’s EVERY THING EVERY TIME), FutureEverything’s Creative Director, Irini Papadimitriou, will host a panel discussion exploring different perspectives on public art and its relevance today, whilst revealing some of the expectations we place on those developing art in the public realm.

Join us to gain insight from an expert panel including practitioners from Qatar and the UK.

Host: Irini Papadimitriou, Creative Director – FutureEverything


  • Naho Matsuda, Artist

This event is free and open to the public. To book a place, please register online at the Qatar National Library site.
