Welcome to OVADA – A contemporary art space in Oxford

We are a Contemporary art space based in Oxford that is run by artists. We provide unique opportunities for both artists and audiences.

Our artist-led space provides a diverse and interdisciplinary programme of inclusive exhibitions and events. Our related education programme supports professional practice and is provided online, from our city centre venue and other off-site locations.

We provide an inclusive environment for both emerging and established artists. We encourage risk taking whilst supporting artists with their professional development, through a programme of advice sessions, networking and information sharing.

Our Contemporary art 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.
