MOCA Toronto, Art Metropole and Forno Cultura will be temporarily closed effective Saturday, March 14, to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on our communities. We are closely monitoring the situation with the Public Health Agency of Canada and Toronto Public Health and will update this message as more information becomes available.
As an artist-driven organization we greatly believe in our offer and value as a site of exchange and discourse. We look forward to reopening when we can guarantee the health and safety of all our visitors, members, partners and staff. We will be rescheduling all affected programmes as soon as possible.
Events and programming postponed until further notice:
If you have booked tickets for the museum or any upcoming events, we will be reaching out to you to offer refunds.
