Pint-Sized Conversations with MOCA is a Wednesday night brought to you by Henderson Brewing Co. MOCA will present Body of Work every second Wednesday of the month.
Body of Work talks invite artists and those who have worked across the floors of MOCA Toronto—members of Akin’s Studio Program, Art Metropole, the Ontario Science Centre’s studio residency and the Toronto Biennial—to discuss their individual practices. ‘Body’ is a term used to describe the texture and weight of beer, and the word body in artistic practice often refers to a particular arrangement of artworks. The speakers in this series have been invited to respond to this duality.
Raoul Olou is a multidisciplinary artist based in Toronto. His work focuses on ideas of home, belonging and archiving the mundane. For his talk, Olou will discuss his recent work and his use of documentary processes across various disciplines, including animation, experimental games and painting. Olou was a resident artist in the Akin Studio Program at MOCA from October 2018 – September 2019.
This event is free and all are welcome! If you’d like to reserve a spot, you can buy a ticket for $5 and enjoy a free pint when you arrive.
