The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (OCCCA) presents Gothic an exhibition on view February 2 – March 24th, 2012. Opening Reception: February 4th, 2012. 6pm to 10pm.

Gothic invites submission from artists evincing a peculiar, perverse, idiosyncratic sensitivity, influenced by literature, movies, television and the tabloids, in painting, drawing, sculpture, illustration, fashion, graphic design, animation, photography, video, digital media, computer-based works, installation and performance. OCCCA’s museum of the macabre will display supernatural mutations, bizarre curiosities permeated by fantastic and pathological themes. Gothic is a mix of Medievalism, Romanticism, science fiction, Victoriana, punk, the uncanny, the grotesque, and the erotic, inseparable from despair, fear and rapture. Gothic reveals the shadow within, the skull beneath the skin. – Rob Mintz.

The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (OCCCA) is an artist operated California non-profit corporation dedicated to the pursuit of professional excellence and freedom of expression in the arts.
