Members’ Preview: 6–7:30 pm
Public Opening: 7:30–10 pm (No tickets required)

MOCA’s Winter 2020 Programme brings together the work of artists Carlos Bunga, Shelagh Keeley, Megan Rooney and Sarah Sze, all of whom address space as a physical and emotional construct to be endlessly rebuilt. Spanning the four floors of the museum, their artistic statements are set into a dialogue that emphasizes the transient and precarious conditions of our time.

Special performance:

Intervening A Sudden Beginning: allie higgins, Lauren Runions, Denise Solleza, Yui Ugai and Shelby Wright
To mark the opening of MOCA’s 2020 winter exhibitions, this performative intervention will take place within and alongside Carlos Bunga’s large-scale cardboard installation, A Sudden Beginning. Through a succession of slow and deliberate movements carried out by five dancers, this performance positions Bunga’s installation as a passageway and transitional space, softening the relationship between body and materiality. Two performances will take place during the night:

  • 7 pm (Members’ Preview)
  • 8:30 pm (Public Opening)

The Akin Studios will be open to the public (6–9 pm)

Light food and drink available during the Members’ Preview (6–7:30 pm)
