Be a SOTTO Artist

Our SOTTO al British cultural program is designed to serve the contemporary community of Florence, providing space for international residents to showcase their work and refine their ideas, while creating opportunities for meetings and collaboration with Italian contemporary creatives. The core program is a series of regular events, exhibitions, and showcases that run from Monday to Thursday evenings in the Sala Hoenig. Artists, curators, and creatives are chosen by the curatorial team at the British Institute, together with a selection of our patrons, and partner with the SOTTO program to share their work with the public. This ranges from intimate exhibitions, to talks, screenings, musical experiments, performances, and whatever you may imagine.

Our events are intimate but full of energy. We are looking for creative expression that is fresh, unexpected, contemporary, in-process, and based around offering experiences that go a step beyond the standard exhibition or presentation. If you would like to take a part in our cultural program, get in touch! We would love to hear all about you and your work.
