Digital Futures Residency 2023-24

July 1, 2023
— June 30, 2024
How can digital approaches to art-making provide new methods of living together, and new languages to imagine a more connected future? And how can artistic practice help us to better understand the role of technology within arts institutions, culture, and society? 
 
MOCA Toronto is pleased to announce the new Digital Futures Residency, in partnership with Toronto Metropolitan University, the National Film Board, and the Vector Institute. The Digital Futures Residency provides an early career artist with the opportunity for artistic exploration in the realm of digital technologies. This residency supports emerging artists based in Canada in research, development, and production that focuses on technology as a connective and even relational tool. 
 
We are very excited to welcome Timothy Yanick Hunter as the first Digital Futures Resident. From July 2023 to June 2024, Hunter will receive a monthly fee intended to support his work and have access to mentorship from the MOCA Toronto team and the three partnering institutions. During this time, the artist will deliver two public programmes or Youth Council activities, which can take the form of but are not limited to, workshops, performances, and talks. While the Digital Futures Residency has no prescribed outcome, the resident is invited to develop new work that relates to the themes of the residency, with the potential of presenting this at the museum.
 
Hunter is also participating in Greater Toronto Art 2024 (GTA24), the second edition of the museum’s highly-acclaimed triennial exhibition, opening March 22, 2024. Learn more about GTA24 and Hunter’s work here.

About the Artist

Timothy Yanick Hunter (b. 1990 Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a multidisciplinary artist and curator whose practice employs strategies of bricolage to examine non-neutral relationships relating to Black and Afro-diasporic experiences as well as concurrent strategies of decolonization. His work often delves into speculative narratives and the intersections of physical space, digital space, and the intangible. Hunter was included in the 2022 Toronto Biennial of Art and longlisted for the 2022 Sobey Art Award. Hunter’s work has been included in recent exhibitions at the Center for Art, Research and Alliances, New York (2023), Bamako Encounters – African Biennale of Photography (2022), and Cooper Cole, Toronto (2022).
