It's Get Better is an annual night presented by artist Stewart Uoo. Initially founded at NYC’s Artists Space in 2012 bringing together an eclectic group of musicians, artists, performers, poets alongside film and video works, and a cinema programme of artist-selected sex-positive films.
Occurring for the first time outside New York City, It’s Get Better V extends across the Institute of Contemporary Arts from sunset to sunrise, moving from performance to screenings to dance party. The night springs from a community of Uoo’s friends, collaborators and heroines, and is organised around perspectives from persons of colour and investments in queer, feminist and radical content.
It’s Get Better debuted at Artists Space in New York in 2013, and continued at MoMA PS1, New York, in 2016. Past participants have included rising stars such as Juliana Huxtable, DeSe Escobar, Ian Isiah, Jacolby Satterwhite and Raúl de Nieves, alongside established artists and performers such as Shelley Hirsch, Ryan Trecartin, Isa Genzken and Charles Atlas.

This Autumn, the Institute of Contemporary Arts presents the first UK exhibition by US artist Seth Price. Spanning the entire building, this survey focuses on Seth’s film & video of the past two decades. Seth Price Circa 1981 is co-curated by the Institute’s Director Stefan Kalmár, Chief Curator Richard Birkett, and Head of Design Stuart Bertolotti-Bailey. As Kalmár’s inaugural exhibition as Director, it flags the Institute’s renewed commitment to addressing the complexity of the contemporary condition, and the critical role of the arts in its mediation.
