The Office for Contemporary Art Norway invites you to a day of thinking beyond the Canon, 28 September at Ingensteds in Oslo.

This programme is part of OCA’s on-going research into artistic canons, a line of inquiry that brings together and builds upon the decolonial, demodern, and transformative propositions that have marked OCA’s activities over the last four years. With new museums expanding around the world, including two major additions set to open in 2020 in our home town of Oslo, this programme argues for an urgency in rethinking the status of the canon and canonizing procedures as we vault ourselves into uncharted cultural institutional futures.

Sovereign Words. Indigenous Art, Curation and Criticism
