Deadline: 1 September 2013

OCA is currently accepting applications for the 2013 Third Quarter Application Review for International Support. Forms are due on 1 September 2013.

Applications are accepted from Norwegian artists, international artists residing in Norway and non-profit arts organisations. Priority is given to exhibitions taking place in key international art institutions and project spaces. Support is also extended to solo exhibitions and group exhibitions initiated by international curators as well as to Norwegian art professionals organising exhibitions and projects abroad.

The objective for support is to foster the professional consideration and exhibition of Norwegian art abroad, innovative artistic production and a creative process of dialogue and collaboration within the spectrum of contemporary cultural practice. OCA's International Support aims to enable international institutions and international curators to work more comprehensively and thoroughly with individual artists, art groups and professionals to convey the critical initiatives behind their production. OCA also finds it important to provide artists, art professionals, curators and cultural producers the possibility to network professionally within the international arts community. OCA also stimulates research, programme development and initiatives that further invigorate the interest in contemporary art production taking place within Norway and by Norwegian artists working abroad.

The funding for International Support is provided by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the allocation is decided upon by an independent jury of Norwegian and international art professionals designated by OCA.

For detailed information about the application process please visit OCA's website. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Anne Charlotte Hauen.
