GENERAL INFO

The COCA is an annual initiative that recognizes the importance of supporting artists. The fourth edition of COCA will take place in Italy, in Taranto, with the new project TWO WILD SEAS.

Over the years, COCA EDITION has become a platform for fostering relationships between artists and collectors: previous editions have awarded artistic productions such as Alice De Kruijs (Netherlands), Joanna Opalska-Brzecka (Poland) e Aurora Noreña Franco (Mexico) among many others. Now in its 4th edition, the initiative aims to support the production and promotion of artistic creations through financial backing and showcasing the works to international collectors.

The theme is open to all artistic disciplines. Candidates retain all copyrights to the images and works.

MEDITERRANEAN EXHIBITION

Taranto (Italy) | Capital of the two seas

Taranto as a cultural hub of the Mediterranean and beyond. 

Now, in anticipation of the XX EDITION OF THE MEDITERRANEAN GAMES 2026, Taranto will be the center of the Mediterranean. That's why we have chosen Taranto for the 4th edition of COCA, “TWO WILD SEAS”.
