National Gallery of Canada and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art Forge a New Partnership
National Gallery of Canada.
OTTAWA- Thanks to an innovative new partnership between the National Gallery of Canada (NGC) and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA), Toronto residents and visitors can now view some of the most significant works from the NGC’s contemporary art collection, without having to leave the metropolitan area.

The National Gallery of Canada at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art is a three-year program that will see the two institutions co-organize and co-present a series of exclusive exhibitions in MOCCA’s newly-renovated project space, drawn from the NGC's extensive contemporary art collection. These will include the presentation of single works, new acquisitions or full scale exhibitions designed to complement MOCCA’s existing programming.

The inaugural exhibition Adams|Demand|Farmer, is being launched at MOCCA on November 10 continuing until December 31, 2010. This exhibition brings together several works by three internationally renowned artists in which the language of sculpture figures prominently. Toronto-based Kim Adams, Berlin-based Thomas Demand and Vancouver-based Geoffrey Farmer are known for transforming existing materials and sources from the everyday world into sculptures and photographs of altered objects that generate new and unexpected meaning.

"Contemporary Canadian art has formed the basis of the Gallery’s mandate since its inception in 1880,” said NGC Director, Marc Mayer. “This new partnership will expand our service to Canadians in one of Canada’s most populous city and help broaden the conversation on contemporary art.”

This is the second such partnership for the NGC which launched the National Gallery of Canada at the Art Gallery of Alberta in 2009. Part of a new programming initiative designed to build on its On Tour exhibitions program, which is one of the largest touring art exhibition programs in the world, these agreements allow the Gallery to extend its reach to other major urban centres across Canada. The NGC at MOCCA program confirms the Gallery’s commitment to sharing its collections with more Canadians and fulfills MOCCA’s pledge to provide greater access to exceptional contemporary art.

“The exhibitions being presented at MOCCA are drawn from the NGC’s prestigious collection of contemporary art and will offer our audiences the opportunity to access the most exciting and relevant work and ideas of our times and a unique opportunity to engage with our shared cultural heritage,” said MOCCA’s Artistic Director & Curator, David Liss.

Reciprocal Membership
As part of the agreement between the NGC and MOCCA, members of each organization will enjoy reciprocal membership privileges which will include complimentary entry into each other’s exhibitions.

Future Programming
Throughout the course of the next three years a number of artists and guests will be invited to work with MOCCA and the NGC’s Contemporary Art curator, Josée Drouin-Brisebois. In February 2011 Toronto-based artist Luis Jacob will select works from the Gallery’s collections that will be shown alongside his solo exhibition at MOCCA, Luis Jacob: Pictures at an Exhibition.

The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art is also grateful for the patronage of THE ART DEPT., a leadership circle of MOCCA patrons.
