MOCA Toronto welcomes you to our new 2019 (February-April) programming. We are excited to present the works of Chantal Akerman and Basma Alsharif. Both artists share many concerns – geopolitical definitions, the collapsing of histories and how we form individual versus collective memory.
Akerman’s exhibition is the first time that her work is being shown in a museum in Toronto.
Learn more about the artists:
Akerman is known for her impact on feminist filmmaking and avant-garde cinema. Her filmography includes 'Jeanne Dielman', '23 quai du Commerce' and '1080 Bruxelles'.
Basma Alsharif’s exhibition intertwines four major works, each one presented as a staged setting. Using many different media, she takes us on journeys into the collective subconscious, exploring the tools we all use to understand the ghosts of history.
Explore all four floors of the museum:
— DEMOS – A Reconstruction, Andreas Angelidakis
— Light Therapy, Apolonija Šušteršič
— Scaffold and Horizons (Earth and Sky), Adrian Blackwell
— Save the date! Tickets will be available shortly.
