About the Artists
Hijinks Collective is Apè Aliermo and Leah Gold. Apè is a Filipinx-Canadian sound artist and Leah is a Jewish-Canadian visual artist.

Hijinks Collective produces community engaged work that is grounded in collaborative storytelling They have produced works as Artists in Residence with the Toronto Public Library and for the Koffler Gallery. Everything they do, both together and individually, is carried out in the spirit of art, community, education, pushing boundaries, and fun. They look forward to getting up to more hijinks together.
TD Community Sunday
January’s TD Sunday will explore the idea of community through the creation of miniature collaborative canvas mosaics. Families and friends will get the opportunity to make small art works, then combine them into a greater picture, telling your own unique story. MOCA’s Arts Educators will support participants in exploring oil pastel on canvas to create works that respond to the group portraiture exhibition Dancing in the Light.
