OGA Video Art (S) EXHIBITIONS 7/31/19
Born in 2013, the space of the OGA (Ospizio Giovani Artisti / Young Artists Hospice) organizes exhibitions with contemporary and modern art works that come exclusively from the Collection of the OGA. These works are usually donated to the OGA by the artists themselves in order to create thematic exhibitions that are a continuous reflection on the role of art involvement in today’s society. It’s very important to say that the OGA was born with the ironic intent to exhibit only works made by artists over 35 years of age, in provocative opposition to festivals and institutions that seek only young artists. In any case sometime this limit will not be fully respected. For the next season of exhibitions, the OGA is looking only for works about sexuality, eroticism, queer, bdsm thematics, even explicit. Exceptionally, for this season of exhibitions, in addiction to videoart, will be accepted also fiction works and documentaries.
