Acknowledgement of the Sámi people

OCA acknowledges the Sámi as one people, and as the Indigenous people of the Fennoscandian region. On the land of this region, Sápmi, the Sámi people have lived since time immemorial, respectfully harvesting from nature by fishing, farming, hunting and following reindeer, amongst other activities.


Closed Session NYC

During 2007 - 2009 OCA offered a short-term residency titled Closed Session in NYC offered to individual artists, curators and critics at the invitation of the Office for Contemporary Art Norway. The purpose of Closed Session was to provide invited residents with the opportunity to gain a broader knowledge of other artist practices, to extend one's network of associations, and to enter into a dialogue with other curators, artists and professionals.
