2010 Project

Empire of Dreams

Location: MOCCA

Partner: MOCCA

The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA) collaborated with PIA in presenting their biennial group exhibition of work by contemporary artists living in Toronto. Titled Empire of Dreams, Phenomenology of the Built Environment, this survey exhibition reflected the beat and pulse of contemporary art produced in the GTA. Empire of Dreams, Phenomenology of the Built Environment included work by prominent artists whose practices may be well-known and others who may be up-and-coming. There is a very strong case to be made for showcasing Toronto artists, who are every bit as strong as those in Montreal and Vancouver but who do not have the same collective or individual strength of profile.
