Next up at OVADA on Friday 2 July 12-6pm

HOME-ing: a live art odyssey on foot from London to Wales 

Wearing a costume of the word ‘HOME’, artist Harriet Hill will perform a month-long walk from her home in South-East London to her childhood home in Mid Wales. En route she will talk to people about what the word means to them and how that has been affected by the pandemic; interactions that will be recorded and edited into a film to be exhibited alongside the costume in a group show in Helsinki this coming September.

Welcome to OVADA – A contemporary art space in Oxford

OVADA (Oxfordshire Visual Arts Development Agency) facilitates experimental visual arts research and practice as well as professional development opportunities for both emerging and established artists. We also seek to promote critical debate and the exchange of ideas without prescribed outcomes.

We offer an interdisciplinary programme of inclusive exhibitions, events and educational opportunities that aim to develop new and diverse audiences for contemporary visual arts practice.

Continuously striving to foster a vibrant and inclusive Oxford visual arts community, we house five artist studios alongside our unique exhibition and education spaces. We also host a thriving Associates programme, that offers opportunities for artists to collaborate and engage with each other.

OVADA’s Warehouse Space

We are housed in a unique semi-industrial building that offers flexible spaces for a range of activities including five Artist Studios as well as spaces to make and share work including an art room where we run classes and events.

We host a programme of exhibitions within our large warehouse space and are happy to consider strong exhibition proposals that wish to explore using the space.
