A New Platform for Emerging Artists
The Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto Canada (MOCA), which has been closed since 2015, reopened May 26 in the city’s Junction Triangle neighborhood, which has become known as a center for art and design. Constructed in 1919, the former auto-parts factory has been restored and its interiors have been brought up to museum standards.
The 55,000-square-foot space on the first five floors of the building will provide a platform for the work of emerging Canadian artists, plus over 20 affordable artist studios for rent. The first exhibit—Believe, which runs through August 12—includes 16 Canadian and international artists whose work challenges the beliefs and systems of our times.
