Born in 2013, the space of the OGA (Ospizio Giovani Artisti / Young Artists Hospice) organizes from four to six group exhibitions every year, 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.
On the occasion of the VideoArt Exhibitions this limit will not be fully respected. It is true, however, that artists over 35 years of age will have more chances to be selected, trying to respect as much as possible the primary rule of the exhibition space.
Rules & Terms
The selected video works will be screened in the upcoming group exhibitions of the season 2019/2020 of the OGA (but very interesting works could also be selected for the season of exhibitions already under way). The videos will be projected sequentially on one or more monitors.
It is not possible to submit video installations or videos for screenings in loop.
Note that, in every exhibition, will be shown also at last one titled and signed by the artist photo/still related to every selected video.
This means that, if selected, the author have obviously to send a file of the video for the screening, but also (and this only by mail) at last one printed image in relation with the selected video, signed by the author himself, and with the title and the year.
Videos not accompanied by at least one printed work will be excluded from the exhibitions.
The material works will not be returned to the authors. They will become part of the OGA Collection and used for future exhibitions. Obviously the authors will be advised on time, whenever.
The OGA does not acquire rights on the videos, which remain totally owned by the authors and will be used only for the period of the exhibitions.
Finally: the OGA is not a profit space and can not pay fees or give hospitality, but each exhibition will be publicized on social networks, on the OGA facebook page, and on the OGA web page: www.ospiziogiovaniartisti.com
