Columns, Grottos, Niches: The Grammar of Forms' On Art Criticism, Writing, Publishing and Distribution

'The Grammar of Forms' is a series public events, workshops and presentations that will take place throughout autumn 2009 and winter 2010 at the Office for Contemporary Art Norway, with the aim to look at language, writing, criticism and publishing in relation to contemporary art, exploring its diverse modes of operation and possibilities within historical and contemporary practices. 'The Grammar of Forms' consists of a series of public events with a pedagogical remit, in which writers, artists, critics, publishers and theorists will investigate different experiences of and approaches to writing and language, specifically in relation to art. Starting in October, the programme will continue through spring 2010, making of OCA a public forum for learning, practice and exchange of knowledge and information, and further developing our commitment to rethinking the relationship that a contemporary art institution can have to its audience. As a complement to this programme of events, OCA will host a series of projects, including presentation of artworks and libraries of publications made available to the public for consultation and reading, further transforming OCA's public space into a place for production and exchange of discourse.
