Interwoven Word: A Spoken Word Tour

Friday, April 7, 2023
 | 6:00 pm
 – 8:30 pm 
 | Free with Admission

Deepen your experience of MOCA Toronto’s spring exhibitions with a special tour of spoken word performances. Featuring the talent and voices of Charlie Petch, Shelly Grace, Truth Is… and Cass Myers. Attendees will be guided through the museum by the artists as they share their intimate perspectives and poetic responses to the exhibitions by Kapwani Kiwanga, Athena Papadopoulos and Serkan Özkaya. 

Each artist has developed their poetic response to a different installation, creating a tour that encourages viewers to follow a specific route through the exhibition spaces. The tour will begin on the first floor at 6 pm and take visitors through all three floors until its conclusion at 8:30 pm. 

The spoken word tour will be followed by a collaborative discussion with the poets that explores the process of poetry-making in response to contemporary art. Themes of identity, creative resistance and play will be developed throughout the programme.
