Age of You Opening MOCA Toronto

It’s about you. As the world shifts from fossil to digital capitalism, you’ve become that precious new resource: data.

You’re increasingly imaginary, invisible and immortal. Do we need a new word to describe this thing that individuality is morphing into?

You’re becoming your Extreme Self.

Shirin Fathi MOCA Toronto

Fathi will lead a tour and discussion of "Age of You", with refreshments to follow.

MOCA’s Artists on Artists series is a programme where local artists are invited to discuss MOCA’s current exhibitions, or a single artwork, in any format or direction of their choosing.

Shezad Dawood

Artist Shezad Dawood is joined by researcher Alice Xia Zhu for a conversation that addresses the fate of microplastics in marine and freshwater contexts, from the San Francisco Bay to the Arctic. This programme is organised in dialogue with Shezad Dawood’s exhibition "Leviathan", presented on MOCA’s Floor 4. "Leviathan" is an ambitious “episodic monster” consisting of ten filmic episodes that envisage a future, uncannily much like our present, to consider possible links between borders, mental health, and marine welfare.

Stephanie Comilang

Stephanie Comilang creates a video, light, scent and textile installation for Nuit Blanche. "It All Makes Sense" recreates a memory of the first time Comilang saw "Perfumed Nightmare" by Kidlat Tahimik — a figure who, like Comilang’s father, comes from Baguio, a mountain city and old American airbase in the Philippines. This teen moment in a basement changed Comilang’s perspective on life.

Artists on Artists: Hannah Epstein on “Age of You”

Hannah Epstein MOCA Toronto

Hannah Epstein works at the cross-section of textiles, experimental games and video art to reimagine the iconography of popular culture, highlighting the cultural negotiation between bottom-up (folk) and top-down (institutional) storytelling. By blurring the lines between traditional craft, popular culture and contemporary art, she aims to isolate and eliminate notions of hierarchy as archaic relics. Epstein will lead a tour and discussion of "Age of You", with refreshments to follow.
