From the Bay Area to the Arctic: Shezad Dawood and Alice Xia Zhu

Artist Shezad Dawood is joined by researcher Alice Xia Zhu for a conversation that addresses the fate of microplastics in marine and freshwater contexts, from the San Francisco Bay to the Arctic. This programme is organised in dialogue with Shezad Dawood’s exhibition "Leviathan", presented on MOCA’s Floor 4. "Leviathan" is an ambitious “episodic monster” consisting of ten filmic episodes that envisage a future, uncannily much like our present, to consider possible links between borders, mental health, and marine welfare.

Stephanie Comilang creates a video, light, scent and textile installation for Nuit Blanche. "It All Makes Sense" recreates a memory of the first time Comilang saw "Perfumed Nightmare" by Kidlat Tahimik — a figure who, like Comilang’s father, comes from Baguio, a mountain city and old American airbase in the Philippines.

Hannah Epstein MOCA Toronto

Hannah Epstein works at the cross-section of textiles, experimental games and video art to reimagine the iconography of popular culture, highlighting the cultural negotiation between bottom-up (folk) and top-down (institutional) storytelling. By blurring the lines between traditional craft, popular culture and contemporary art, she aims to isolate and eliminate notions of hierarchy as archaic relics. Epstein will lead a tour and discussion of "Age of You", with refreshments to follow.

Facial Recognition Age of You

Think you can outsmart facial recognition? In this workshop, participants will design and construct masks and headpieces inspired by CV Dazzle, a project by artist Adam Harvey that provides information and tips for creating “looks” that can camouflage the face from face detection technology. Using elements such as asymmetry, tonal inverse and the concealment of certain facial features, you will be able to learn and test which design combinations are most effective in hiding from facial recognition technology.
