David will take part in the third edition of the New York Times' 'Art for Tomorrow' conference in Doha next week. The conference brings together artists, architects, curators, museum directors and other cultural professionals for a series of discussions revolving around the theme of ‘Boundaries, Identity and the Public Realm’.


David will join Pedro Gadanho, artistic director of the MAAT (Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology) in Lisbon, for a discussion on the role that museums – both the buildings and the collections themselves – can play in defining national identity. The discussion will be moderated by Robin Pogrebin of the The New York Times and will take place at 10am local time on Saturday 11 March.
