From 1987–95, Dia presented Discussions in Contemporary Culture at 548 West 22nd Street, New York City. Reinitiated in fall 2012, this series invites a distinguished and diverse group of artists, scholars, journalists, and historians to engage in a critical debate on a topic of present-day significance. The series creates a discussion as means to challenge and debate current conditions, preoccupations, and explorations occurring in contemporary artistic practice that parallel the general culture at large.

Discussions in Contemporary Culture is part of the Sackler Institute at Dia Art Foundation.
