MOCA Goes Dark: Night Visions Dance Party

Saturday, August 17, 2019
 – Sunday, August 18, 2019
 | 9:00 pm
 – 1:00 am 
 | Free

We are turning off the lights and GOING DARK for a one-night-only Night Visions dance party.
Floors 1 and 4 will be open.

Floor 1 at MOCA will be transformed into an interactive art party, presented by Akin, a group of Toronto’s talented emerging artists. The Tower Automotive Building was once the site of legendary dance parties, raves, and punk gigs. The building’s wild legacy will be revived for one night only with amazing art and music, lighting MOCA up in the dark. Starting at 9pm, come play with artist-led interactive installations and activities on the ground floor.

Dance among art with beats by DJ Lulu Wei and DJ Sammy Rawal on our blacklight dance floor. Akin group exhibition An Index will be open on Floor 4 throughout the evening.

DJ Lulu Wei
Her mix of pop, hip-hop, R&B and hi-energy house hits has been making queer folks dance for years in parties like New Ho Queen.

DJ Sammy Rawal
Sammy is the co-founder/resident DJ of Yes Yes Y’all, Canada’s largest queer hip hop/dancehall party that seeks to create spaces for LGBTQ2 POC.

This party is organized and presented with the exhibition An Index which features 24 artists from the inaugural Akin Studio Program. An Index makes visible the labours of artistic creation through an open and honest charting of the processes, challenges, delights, and failures of making art in the city. Night Visions credits the importance of social play in creative production. For the first time ever MOCA Goes Dark, and invites you to explore the museum transformed by local artists.
