After three years of de­lays, the much-an­tic­i­pated Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art is sched­uled to re­open its doors in a space five times larger than its for­mer Queen West home. The new 55,000-square­foot gallery, housed over five floors in the Junc­tion’s iconic Tower Au­to­mo­tive Build­ing, will host three ma­jor ex­hibits each year, in ad­di­tion to work­shops, per­for­mances and talks. The de­but show, Be­lieve, features 16 artists from Canada and abroad (in­clud­ing Awol Erizku—the pho­tog­ra­pher re­spon­si­ble for Bey­oncé’s vi­ral preg­nancy por­trait), and asks ques­tions about our plu­ral­is­tic so­ci­ety.
