Oklahoma Contemporary is a center for community engagement and dialogue that provides a vital platform to learn more about contemporary art, artists, ideas and creative practice. Public Programs includes talks by distinguished artists, lectures by curators and scholars, conversations, performances, screenings, artist demonstrations and activities that support exploration and inquiry in the galleries -- most of which are free.

If you would like to collaborate with Oklahoma Contemporary on a public program, submit your proposal here. Please include your CV and/or a link to your website. We are accepting proposals for 2025 and beyond.
