Winter Members' Preview
Members, please log in to claim your tickets.
MOCA Toronto welcomes you to our new 2019 (February-April) programming that explores the themes of our time. We are excited to present the video works of Chantal Akerman and Basma Alsharif. The 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:
- Chantal Akerman
Akerman is known for her impact on feminist filmmaking and avant-garde cinema. Her filmography includes the masterpiece Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975), which she made when she was just 25 years old.
- Basma Alsharif
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.
