What kind of art can be use­ful to Toron­to­ni­ans in win­ter? The Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art’s Art In Use pro­ject ex­plores the idea of art as a tool, and its in­stall­ment is par­tic­u­larly in­spired: Light Ther­apy, an in­stal­la­tion by Slove­nian artist Apolonija Šušteršič, il­lu­mi­nates a room with warm LED lights that sim­u­late a sunny day. The idea is to com­bat Sea­sonal Af­fec­tive Dis­or­der, and vis­i­tors are en­cour­aged to bask in the ar­ti­fi­cial glow for any­where from 15 min­utes to three hours – or when­ever you need a re-charge while ex­plor­ing the mu­seum’s five floors. Orig­i­nally pro­duced in Swe­den in 1999, Light Ther­apy ex­plores how mu­se­ums can play a role in well-be­ing. This is the third it­er­a­tion of the in­stal­la­tion, which runs from Novem­ber 28 to Fe­bru­ary 10. MOCA (158 Ster­ling). $5-$10. mu­se­u­mof­con­tem­po­rar­yart.ca
