Event Description

Monday 15 April, 6.30 - 8.30pm
Starr Auditorium, Tate Modern, London SE1 9TG

Can a museum make a city? Is a museum about its own image, or the images it contains? What and whom are these grand projects really designed for, and what do they tell us about the place of culture in the 21st century global city?

Join us at Tate Modern where our international panel of leading architects and commentators will dissect and preview three of the world's most anticipated grand urban cultural projects, to explore and critique the importance of art and culture in the global city, and the role that architecture and art can play in affecting civic society.

Through discussion and presentation of Ateliers Jean Nouvel's forthcoming Louvre Abu Dhabi at Saadiyat Island (Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates), Foster + Partner's West Kowloon Cultural District (Hong Kong, People’s Republic of China) and WORKac's New Holland Island (St. Petersburg, Russian Federation), the event will examine the design, ambition and significance of these forthcoming cultural destinations, and debate the logic of the cultural institution as an urban agent.

A limited number of tickets remain available, book early to avoid disappointment.
