Join curator Noor Alé for a one-hour tour on MOCA’s second floor, offering her response to Shirin Neshat’s exhibition Land of Dreams. Noor Alé is the Associate Curator at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in Toronto. This programme will focus on Neshat’s exhibition at MOCA—the artist’s first major exhibition in Canada in 20 years.
Alé’s insights will produce an engaging dialogue that draws connections between Neshat’s luminous practice and the presentation of work at MOCA. The audience will have a chance to ask Alé questions as the tour progresses through the exhibition.
This event is part of a public programme series curated by Farnoosh Talaee.
