OCA Pop-Up

The OCA Pop-Up meetings form part of OCA’s focus to reach out to art communities in cities outside the capital in collaboration with local art institutions and guest artists. The OCA Pop-Ups have been designed in order to connect with local art communities, present OCA's activities, facilitate the use of OCA as a tool for art professionals in their internationalisation process, as well as further the transmission of information on the dynamics of the international art world. The aim of OCA Pop-Up is to strengthen the position of OCA as a discussion partner with art communities nationwide.
