Creative Conversations: Noor Alé Responds to Shirin Neshat’s Land of Dreams

Sunday, May 29, 2022
 | 4:00 pm
 – 5:00 pm 
 | Free with General Admission

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.


Noor Alé is the Associate Curator at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto. Her curatorial practice examines the intersections of contemporary art with geopolitics, migration, and decolonization. Recent curatorial projects include Sasha Huber: YOU NAME IT, The Power Plant; this is not an atlas, Visual Arts Centre of Clarington; Valentin Brown: Welcome to My Regulated Body, Art Gallery of Windsor; and Here Comes the Sun, Art Gallery of Burlington. She was awarded curatorial residencies at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and the Shanghai Curators Lab. She holds an MA in Art History from The Courtauld Institute of Art.
