Tickets for The Institute of Fine Arts, NYU venue are sold out. Registration for the general Night of Ideas event at the button above is recommended but not required. Admission is first-come, first-served and subject to our capacity at the time of your arrival.


Centered around the theme How Much More?, the New York edition of Night of Ideas, co-presented by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Ukrainian Institute of America, the Institute of Fine Arts – NYU, and Villa Albertine, interrogates the over-stimulation and excess of our physical and digital realities. Conversely, what aspects of our contemporary existence are being neglected and need urgent attention? The event examines how we cope with our chaotic present — from the climate crisis, to the proliferation of content online, to political polarization in post-Roe America — and what vision young people, in particular, have of our uncertain future.


Come explore:

Afrofuturism at The Metropolitan Museum of Art,

Women’s rights at the Villa Albertine headquarters,

Environmental challenges and land rights at the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU,

and Technology and social media in the information age at the Ukrainian Institute of America.


Participants will be invited to ponder how much more our society can withstand — and what more is required of us to preserve a livable world.


Presented by: Villa Albertine, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Institute of Fine Arts – NYU, and The Ukrainian Institute of America in partnership with Columbia and Princeton Universities.
