A new art museum in the Junction
Art | MOCA | Opens Sept. 22, 158 Sterling Rd.
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.
