Created by the Norwegian Ministry of Culture and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA) is a foundation that aims to strengthen the position of contemporary visual arts and production from Norway, and to stimulate and facilitate exchange between Norwegian and international art professionals and institutions.
OCA, which functions as a cultural meeting place for Norwegians and citizens from around the world, has offices and a public platform in the center of Oslo. A multidisciplinary institution with an expanded public platform, OCA seeks to enhance the appreciation of contemporary Norwegian artistic achievements—by offering a series of discursive residency, exchange, and exhibition programs that focus on contemporary artistic and intellectual currents in Norway and abroad—and to cooperate with cultural and academic institutions worldwide.
