We'll be livestreaming tonight's lecture:

Tickets available Monday, December 14*

On the occasion of her arrival in Toronto as the incoming Director of the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA), renowned curator and critic Chantal Pontbriand joins us for a free talk. The reopening of MOCCA in Spring 2017 will coincide with the launch of Demo-Graphics 1, the international art event planned for the GTA, of which Pontbriand is the founding curator. She will discuss the new horizons she is now pursuing, linking political issues to artistic and institutional practices, in the context of both Toronto's and Canada's new leadership on global agendas.

Presented in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA).
