Now Open: Greater Toronto Art 2024, March 22–July 28.

Greater Toronto Art 2021

September 29, 2021 — January 30, 2022

Greater Toronto Art 2021 (GTA21), brings together twenty-one of the most energizing artists and art collectives working in Toronto or intensely connected to the city. The title we’ve adopted, which plays on the name of the city’s broad metropolitan area, addresses our ever expanding notion of what Toronto might be, where it extends, and what practices and attitudes exist here. 

This large-scale exhibition is a new triennial, defined by its pledge to Toronto artists and the commissioning of new projects that add to a local and global discourse. For the inaugural iteration, we asked each contributor to consider: What feels most urgent to you today? Taken together, their responses offer different imaginations of the city, society and the world. Uniting them, however, is a profound belief in remembering, storytelling, questioning, resisting, celebrating, making and speculating.

Curators: Daisy Desrosiers, Rui Mateus Amaral and November Paynter

Visionary support for MOCA in 2021 has been provided by four anonymous donors.
