After Hours is a three phase project that emphasizes the value of promoting "mutual understanding through art."

With an exhibit about life's big questions, an artists' co-operative searches for epiphanies. Who are we, where are we going? These O.C. existentialists understand fame's fifteen minutes are fleeting. Art is forever. They are activists on behalf of their obsessions, convinced that art is an unpredictable experiment. They are practical dreamers, street-smart provocateurs. They believe art has the power to cause a paradigm shift in the way people think about daily life.

When the works they create are presented together under one roof in Slovakia, magic happens, especially as the evening grows late, and final toasts are proposed to the future's unfinished sketches. The artworks come alive, rubbing against each other with the friction of ideas, triggering animated arguments among the gallery's guests, strangers no longer in a sudden rush to divulge intimate secrets, personal tastes, fears and longings. At OCCCA after hours, in every work of art, the cool breeze of a coming dawn.
