The Year Ahead

Change is the one constant that unifies global CEOs — and the pace of change only seems to be quickening. Which is why Bloomberg convenes The Year Ahead Summit, an invitation-only event creating a 360-degree view of the most urgent topics facing every executive in the coming year.

Change is constant

Change is the one constant that unifies global CEOs — and the pace of change only seems to be quickening. Which is why Bloomberg convenes The Year Ahead Summit, an invitation-only event creating a 360-degree view of the most urgent topics facing every executive in the coming year. The issues are myriad, from ongoing geopolitical uncertainty to the next generation of cyber security challenges to the radically changing nature of work in the age of A.I. to the most promising new global investment opportunities. Join Bloomberg this fall to help shape the conversation around the most important trends, issues and challenges every executive will need to consider in 2019 and beyond.

Special Dinner: The Year Ahead in Art and Culture

Proudly sponsored by Hennessy Paradis Imperial.  Seating is limited.
Pre-registration is required.

One of the foremost conceptual artists working today, Taryn Simon is an expert in revealing the invisible, which is to say her complex, multi-layered work limns the space between the seeming authority of an image and the language employed to describe it. “That space,” she says, “where we interpret, where there’s judgement, there’s translation, there’s manipulation, there’s the instability of fact.” Simon’s art, which spans text, photography, sound, sculpture and performance, is at once mysterious and austerely taxonomic in its approach. And in our age of tectonic geopolitical shifts, “alternative facts,” and conflicting narratives, it’s also on-the-nose relevant. Please join us for an in-depth discussion with Taryn Simon on the creative process that drives her work, why you’ll never see her in her own art, and what lead her to once spend four sleepless days and nights at a US Customs site at JFK International Airport.
