The Akin Studio Program at MOCA
Akin is thrilled to announce a unique and publicly open partnership with MOCA to provide affordable studio space to more than 30 visual artists and cultural practitioners in the museum's new home on Sterling Road through the Akin Studio Program. The Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto Canada will open on September 22, 2018 at 158 Sterling Rd in the Junction Triangle.
Selected artists will be moving their studio into the museum for a term of one year and will share their practices with the museum’s visitors through programs such as open studio events.
Floor 4 of MOCA will integrate these studios, with residencies and a workshop space for educational programs. The studios will vary in size from approximately 50 to 250 square feet and will be designed by Akin to create a light and welcoming environment for artists to develop their work. Regular Akin studio rental fees will apply. Similar to Akin’s other locations, the space will foster a community atmosphere and the exchange of ideas.
This Program is open to student, emerging and professional art practitioners, curators and writers living in Toronto.
The 2018 Call for Applications for the Akin Studio Program at MOCA (May 2018 - April 2019) is now closed. Successful applicants have been notified and the Program will launch in summer 2018. The Call for the 2019 - 2020 Program will be announced in the new year.
