Admirers of visual art who enjoy experiencing works that push the boundaries of convention will appreciate the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art’s exhibitions. The thought-provoking works on display at MOCCA are carefully chosen to challenge and excite. The museum features two exhibition spaces, a 5000 square-foot main space and a smaller project room. Exhibitions change every six to eight weeks. Over 800 artists have showcased their works here since 2005, and the museum strives to promote new and innovative artists as well as established ones.
The museum’s impressive permanent collection features about 400 works of art by over 150 Canadian artists including Tony Urquhart, one of Canada’s leading contemporary artists. MOCCA also participates in international festivals and has showcased several projects and exhibitions outside of Canada.
MOCCA offers a schedule of educational programming for those wanting to learn more about visual arts straight from artists, curators and other experts. More information on discussions and presentations can be found on the museum’s official website.
