DESCRIPTION

The meaning of beauty has been debated by philosophers since the time of the Greeks. Courted or  corned, distrusted,  devalued, deconstructed, beauty promises pleasure while  provoking awe,  admiration and even fear. Beauty quickens  the pulse. Attention Contemporary Artists! OCCCA accepted submissions of artworks representing ideas of  the beautiful. Painting, drawing,  sculpture, photography,  video, installation, and computer-based New Media projects  were welcomed.

Beauty stirs the understanding, and is the enemy of complacency. Concepts alone can never replace  it.  Beauty’s provocations are no longer innocent. Exuberant, self-conscious and enigmatic, beauty will stage a stunning comeback at OCCCA.
