We are proud to launch the Art Guild of Ordo Templi Orientis Australia under the name, Collective777.
Among the central aims of Collective 777 is to raise awareness of esoteric and occult art in all its forms, to further the interests of its members, and to promulgate the Law of Thelema through the creation of artistic work and staging of creative public initiatives. The guild will accept members working across a range of creative practice including but not limited to painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, digital, sound, music, design, curation, poetry and performance. The practice of the collective will be both collaborative and individual, but always toward exhibiting together as a group in gallery exhibitions, pop-up showings and public spaces.
Collective 777 will maintain a central website at www.collective777.com, aimed at promoting members, the Ordo Templi Orientis and Thelema. Developing a more prominent group profile will benefit members by association, and will create a hub for curators, critics and enthusiasts to better understand and support the occult genre as a whole.
The first public projects of the guild include a major public museum exhibition, two commercial gallery showings and the first annual guild publication.
