Occupy Networks, a collective of over 100 independent artists and curators, was invited to ‘occupy’ the Consulate General of France in New York. The artists and curators of this exhibition have all lived or worked in France.

The pieces of art are curated taking into account the daily interaction between the exhibit and the work of Consulate’s staff. They respond to socio-political changes, adopt an activist approach or aim to reverse hierarchies and provide a better representation for artistic minorities (immigrant artists, artists in reintegration, parents, etc.).

Occupy Art Project #3 was initiated by Eirini Linardaki, who invited fifteen curatorial projects to occupy Consulates in New York.

The Occupy Art Project is also a research project with the aim of creating a map of New York City art initiatives and networks that question, explore, and create new paradigms in contemporary and public art.
