Many of us are missing live music, terribly. We are grieving the sudden death of concerts. We are craving the quirky, sweaty, crowded OCCII shows the most, but also the really weird ones that probably only 10 people would attend. There is no place like the OCCII! It has a unique character, a beauty and a rawness to it that cannot be replaced and certainly will not be forgotten. It is important, more than ever, to come up with ways to help it not only to survive but also to creatively thrive, in times of unprecedented restrictions and limitations. With this exhibition and print sale we are giving music back to the OCCII, in the way photographers know best, through their images, as souvenirs of a recent past that feels so distant already, but also providing some financial aid to keep it going as further possible.
More than 20 photographers responded to the call to look through their archives and to donate photos made at OCCII shows, throughout the years. We included everybody that showed interest in participating, professional and amateur photographers alike. This creative solidarity action is only possible thanks to all of them, and its proceeds will be 100% for the OCCII.
The offline exhibition is happening on the 26th, 27th and 28th of June and the people visiting will be able to buy the photos shown. There will also be some original art prints by Rogier Smal and a little booklet about the event made by Roger NBH, both regular OCCII collaborating artists.
After the exhibition, it will be possible to buy the remaining prints here, using the contact form below. Most prints (40×30 and 45×30) have a starting price of 50 euros (without shipping expenses). We would like to welcome you to donate more if you can. To buy a print that is no longer available here, please get in touch with us or the photographer directly.
Each photo shown here contains links to both the event where it was made and to the photographer’s website or preferred social media. We encourage you to explore those links, to go back to the original event page – where you can (re)discover the amazing poster art that also characterizes the OCCII – and get to know more of the photographers’ works.
