PA System Art Collective

PA System art collective, a collaboration between artists Alexa Hatanaka and Patrick Thompson, are the current OSC resident artists at MOCA until March 15, 2019. They create public artwork and work in textile, printmaking, painting, and video. They exhibit in institutions internationally, such as the Canada House in London, the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona and the Art Gallery of Ontario. PA System’s recent work is informed by their time spent over the past six years in Kinngait (Cape Dorset, Nunavut), where their ongoing project Embassy of Imagination (EOI) is based. EOI is a visual art and social practice working with and for Kinngait youth.

PA System art collective invites everyone to help create part of the ongoing work Resolution (Mass of Clarity).

Milumbe Haimbe

Milumbe Haimbe was born in Lusaka, Zambia. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture attained from the Copperbelt University in Kitwe Zambia, and also holds a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts obtained from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in Norway.

Milumbe is a multimedia artist interested in exploring diversity in popular media and culture. Her work combines several mediums including drawing, illustration, animation, video, 3D modelling, text and comic book art to navigate these themes. She represents a wide intersection of cultural minorities and believes that this intersectionality places her in a prime position to lend her voice to the communities that she represents.

She has exhibited her work in numerous shows, including FOCUS 10 – Art Basal in Switzerland, and is an alumnus of the Art Omi International Artist’s Residency in New York, as well as the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship in Washington DC. She also exhibited in the Biennale for Contemporary African Art in Dakar, 2014, and is a recipient of the 2015 Bellagio Arts Fellowship Award, the Astraea Global Arts Fund, and the Lauréate du prix de la Fondation Blachère.
