The arc of history bends towards justice. Protest art just speeds things along. Protest art afflicts the comfortable, and comforts the afflicted. Protest art helps us to imagine a future free from the tyranny of ignorance and deprivation. As the late Carrie Fisher said, “Take your broken heart and make it into art.” OCCCA invites artists to submit their art for an exhibition of posters, placards, videos, photography, paintings, sculptures, functional objects, installations, fashion and new media projects. In Art as Protest, beauty and truth march hand in hand. Packed with powerful provocations in a wide range of styles, and covering a vast array of themes, protest art awakens the conscience of the world, celebrating diversity, tolerance and art’s ineluctable promise of happiness.

Topicality is a tradition at OCCCA, an artist-run alternative space serving the contemporary art scene since 1980.

 

Open to all media and to the entire planet.

If your work is complicated to install, or an installation we ask that you install the work. We have limited devices for video and you may need to supply your own monitors etc.
