Greater Toronto Art 2024, March 22–July 28.



Sterling Weekend

Saturday, May 25, 2019
 – Sunday, May 26, 2019
 | 10:00 am
 – 5:00 pm 
 | Free

Coinciding with Doors Open, MOCA’s Sterling Weekend activities take inspiration from Mark Dion’s exhibition, The Life of a Dead Tree and the 100th anniversary of the Tower Automotive Building. Reflecting on the life that has returned to the Tower Automotive Building, artist Mark Dion’s exhibition brings a massive, fully grown, deceased tree into the gallery along with its inhabitants, to create a sensory experience and exploration of the natural cycle of life and death.

A series of film screenings, workshops, and lively conversations delve into the unique history of the building, and investigate the concrete architecture and parklands that make up our city.

Join us at MOCA for two full days of free, interactive programs that are open to visitors of all ages.

Floors 1-5 and 8-10 will be open!
