OCA is currently accepting applications for the Third Quarter Application Review for International Support within 02 Programmes. Forms are due 1 September 2011. Applications are accepted from Norwegian artists, international artists residing in Norway and non-profit entities. 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 Programme 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.
