Ramdom is an organisation devoted to cultural and artistic production and it is based in Gagliano del Capo (LE, Italy). It was founded in 2011 by
Paolo Mele and Luca Coclite with the aim of providing international projection to contemporary art projects produced in dialogue with the local territory of Salento. Over the past seven years activities have included exhibitions, public art productions, residencies and workshops, plus two ongoing research focused endeavours, Investigation of Extreme Lands and DEFAULT.
In 2016 it launched Until the End of the Sea Residency program dedicated to under 35 artists and curators.
