MOCA Toronto proudly presents Greater Toronto Art 2024 (GTA24), the second edition of the museum’s highly-acclaimed triennial exhibition, and the only recurring institutional exhibition in the city dedicated to artists from or with a connection to the region. Opening March 22, 2024, GTA24 will be on view across all three floors of the museum.
Highlighting the unique subject-position of each artist while emphasizing difference as a point of understanding and connection, GTA24 presents a constellation of 25 intergenerational artists, duos, and collectives, and work in a variety of mediums, including video, sculpture, installation, painting, photography, drawing, sound, and performance. The exhibition reflects the dense, energetic, and ever-changing place that is the Greater Toronto Area.
In an evolution of this triennial exhibition, this edition of GTA explores the importance of history to both the present and the future, presenting newly commissioned pieces by artists including Catherine Telford Keogh, Jes Fan, Lotus L. Kang, Sukaina Kubba, and Timothy Yanick Hunter, alongside existing works of contemporary art from past decades going back to the 1960s. Taking part alongside the exhibition, the GTA24 Live Programme will consist of newly commissioned performances and a screening programme delivered in partnership with Paradise Cinema.
Timothy Yanick Hunter, MOCA’s current Digital Futures resident, is creating a newly commissioned installation for GTA24 that is a continuation of his project True and Functional. In another new commission for GTA24, Catherine Telford Keogh has developed a major new site-specific sculptural installation that builds upon her ongoing research into the deep time of materials, and the historical and present day entanglement of pollution with capitalist industry.
The exhibition will also include existing work made between 1965 and 2023. This includes two experimental videos by Theo Jean Cuthand reflecting on the artist’s experience with mental illness and the impacts of ongoing settler colonialism, along with Sin Wai Kin’s Turner Prize-nominated film, A Dream of Wholeness in Parts (2021).
Greater Toronto Art 2024 is led by MOCA Curator Kate Wong and two invited guest curators, Ebony L. Haynes and Toleen Touq. Read more about our curatorial team, here.
