As we face an ever urgent and uncertain future, we temporarily suspend the current administrative, bureaucratic, and relocation tasks at hand to do what we do best: that of making the best artwork that we can; for this is the true binding force and DNA makeup of Open-Contemporary Art Center (OCAC). Utilized as an act to reinforce and realign our mission as we move forward, this exhibition entitled 19991221 > 20130421 | PART ONE is also an occasion to celebrate this departure, this one marker, amongst many to come.
For the last project at our JUT Foundation for Arts & Architecture space, we have selected thirty-two current and past members from OCAC’s eleven year history to collaborate in a set of conditional spatial and temporal parameters that revolves around individual and collective working strategies as a way to reassess, reconstruct, and remember what has taken place and give illuminations to what may have been left out of this wondrous journey.
19991221 > 20130421 | PART ONE serves also as a bridge from our current place to an upcoming yet undecided location, for PART TWO will take place in the programming at our next station.
