Join Fatoş Üstek to celebrate the launch of The Art Institution of Tomorrow, a unique manifesto for raising the standard of institutional practices across the world. It suggests that existing art institutions are not equipped to deal with the radical social, economic and environmental change we are living through and engage with advancement in the arts, and that unless they re-focus on their core purpose and fundamentally transform their organisational structure and operational models, they will start to lose their relevance and influence.

Built on an extensive study of non-profit visual-arts organisations and the creative industries at large, and incorporating interviews with institutional leaders from throughout the sector, the book expresses a clear outline of change that art institutions will need to undergo in order to maintain their relevance for generations to come.

Fatoş Üstek is an independent curator and writer and a leading voice in contemporary art. She was previously Director of the Liverpool Biennial, Director of the Roberts Institute of Art, Associate Curator of the 10th Gwangju Biennial, South Korea and Curator of Frieze Sculpture 2023. In 2015 she was the Art Fund Curator at fig-2, a ground-breaking project which presented 50 projects in 50 weeks.
