DDA Occitanie: how does it work?

Once a year a call for applications is addressed to the Occitania region’s artists. After the call, a selection committee gathers and selects around ten artists who will enter the collection the following year.

Selection process

The committee is made up of leading figures (artists, cultural players, exhibition curators, critics, art directors, (curators), professors, gallerists…). DDA Occitanie chooses the committee, ensuring a plurality of gazes, cultural and age diversity as well as parity. In order to guarantee an eclectic collection the committee members are renewed every year.

How to apply

The artists who wish to become part of the collection must submit their dossier during the annual call for applications, which is published once per year. In 2023, it will be during the summer.

Applicants must:

  • Live and work in the Occitania region on a regular basis
  • Have a regular professional art practice and have a profuse production that justifies its documentation
  • Work in the field of contemporary creation in the visual arts
  • Exhibit regularly in France or abroad.
