The Institute of Things to Come is an itinerant art programme aimed at investigating forms of imaginative speculation as cultural strategies and methodologies for critical positions. Founded in 2017 by artist Ludovica Carbotta and curator Valerio Del Baglivo, each year The Institute focuses on a different theme, inviting artists to present works that interact with other disciplines. At the centre of each yearly theme are a series of artworks, interrogated through conferences, projections, seminars and exhibitions. Moreover The Institute conducts a nine-months Associates Programme, allowing six participants to develop their practice and contribute to the public programme in concert with the yearly theme.
