MOCA Toronto’s Winter 2020 exhibition programme features major new commissions and recent work by Carlos Bunga, Shelagh Keeley, Megan Rooney and Sarah Sze. Working across sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, photography and moving image, each artist assembles and elevates everyday materials to engineer experiences that are both monumental and intimate. Playing with the construction and undoing of systems in space, these artists explore a broad range of themes from memory and ephemerality to consumption and transformation.

A Sudden Beginning
Carlos Bunga
February 6-May 10
Curated by MOCA Adjunct Curator Rui Mateus Amaral.
Bunga is producing two major site-responsive works inspired by the simplicity of the museum’s architecture and the rhythm of its interior columns. With A Sudden Beginning (2020), Bunga will simultaneously underscore and challenge the structure’s physicality.

An Embodied Haptic Space
Shelagh Keeley
February 6-May 10
Keeley’s exhibition An Embodied Haptic Space combines a new ephemeral wall drawing created for MOCA, a film projection from 2016 and a series of tarp paintings from 1986. In the visceral, site-specific installations she has been producing for over 40 years, Keeley balances the speed and rigidity of digital photography with the slowness and freedom of drawing. At the root of the installation are photographic traces of MOCA’s building pre-renovation.

HUSH SKY MURMUR HOLE
Megan Rooney
February 6-April 12
For Rooney’s first major solo exhibition in Canada, the artist transforms a floor of the museum by enveloping it in a large-scale mural, making use of all the facility’s original walls. This temporary site-specific environment will become home to characters and scenarios composed from ubiquitous household materials, found objects, stuffed fabrics and paint.

Images in Debris
Sarah Sze
February 6-May 10
Sze’s work Images in Debris (2018) marks the launch of MOCA’s The City Is a Collection, a new series initiated to present major contemporary artworks from private art holdings from within the Toronto community. Images in Debris is one in a series of monumental, immersive, mixed-media sculptures where light, movement, images and architecture coalesce into a single, precarious equilibrium.
