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 ProgramThe Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto Canada will opened on September 22, 2018 at 158 Sterling Rd in the Junction Triangle.

Selected artists have moved 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 25 to 200 square feet and were designed by Akin to create a light and welcoming environment for artists to develop their work. Regular Akin studio rental fees 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.
