Greater Toronto Art 2024 Opening Weekend

Friday, March 22, 2024
 – Sunday, March 24, 2024
 | Cost Varies

Join MOCA Toronto to celebrate our Spring 2024 Opening Weekend through a series of drop-in hands-on workshops, artist talks, and performances. Immerse yourself in the newly opened exhibition: Greater Toronto Art 2024, the second edition of the museum’s highly-acclaimed triennial exhibition.

Experience our first MOCA Free Friday Night of the season, and engage with the artworks on display all weekend long!

On our opening weekend, Mapping the GTA welcomes visitors of all ages to MOCA for a series of workshops to engage with the theme of community through map-making and other arts-based activities. Each workshop is free with the cost of admission.

Friday, March 22

5–9 pm | Free

Join MOCA for our first Free Friday Night of the Spring exhibition season! Enjoy free admission to the museum across all three floors, as well as a new lightbox commission by Lisa Myers as part of the Greater Toronto Art 2024 exhibition. Secure your free tickets here or drop in. 

To celebrate the opening of GTA24 and in continuation of MOCA’s Friday Night Performance Series, join MOCA on March 22 at 7pm for a free performance by renowned experimental artist Nobuo Kubota. Kubota will present a new performance that brings together vocal work and sound poetry. Inspired by free improvisation and the sensibilities of jazz, as well as Kabuki theater, Kubota’s performances blur disciplinary as well as cultural borders. Learn more and register here.

Saturday, March 23

12:00 pm–4:00 pm | Free with admission | Drop-in

This drop-in workshop asks participants to reconsider our relationships to the land we live on. Working collaboratively, participants will consider the geography of the Greater Toronto Area, our histories, and our local communities through art-making. Book your tickets in advance here.

2–3:30 pm | Tickets $25, Students $15

Join MOCA at Paradise Theatre on March 23 from 2–3:30 pm for an in depth conversation between Jes Fan and Sin Wai Kin. Fan and Sin will be coming together to discuss their connections to and distance from the Greater Toronto Area, and the notion of desire as it relates to each of their practices. Both are both exhibiting artists in Greater Toronto Art 2024  — running from March 22, 2024 to July 28, 2024. 

Learn more and register here.

Sunday, March 24

12 pm–4 pm | Free with admission | Drop-in

Just as the artists in GTA24 created artwork inspired by the Greater Toronto Area, join MOCA’s Art Educators in drawing artworks inspired by your own neighborhood. This drop-in workshop welcomes artists of all ages to explore what makes their community unique and try your hand at drawing from a bird’s eye view!

Free with admission. Book your tickets in advance here.
