The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA) is pleased to announce a special fundraising initiative in conjunction with Toronto International Art Fair (TIAF), ART TORONTO 2010, taking place October 28 – November 1, 2010, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
Since participating in the Fair in 2002, MOCCA has commissioned and produced new work and projects by some of Canada’s most exciting contemporary artists. Recently McLeod’s practice has gained strong local and international attention, and two of his extraordinary digital prints were included in the exhibition Empire of Dreams, MOCCA’s biennial showcase of Toronto artists.
The prints will be sold exclusively at the fair and with only ten of each print available at a very reasonable price they will be sure to sell quickly.
• $850 each, $1,615 for two, or $2,165 for the suite of three (unframed)
All proceeds raised will support programming at MOCCA.
