Artist Stewart Uoo presents the fifth iteration of the cult event It’s Get Better, an annual night bringing together a diverse group of musicians, artists and performers alongside film and video, and a cinema programme of artist-selected adult films.

About

With Larry B, WHY BE, JUST DOSHA, DeSe Escobar, Juliana Huxtable, Marie Karlberg, Morag Keil, Nkisi, Joyce NG & Klein, Raúl De Nieves, Rian Pickell, Jacolby Satterwhite, Nick Weiss and more participants to be announced… 

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.
