Hot Art: MOCCA’s Empire

An Te Liu's Cloud sculpture

TO AUGUST 15 There may be truth in the axiom that without structure, there is chaos. It’s not clear, however, what this structure is, how it should come to be, and, once created, how it should be used. These questions comprise the foundation of Empire of Dreams, a large-scale group show at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art. Here, Toronto-based artists interpret the myriad ways in which humans envision, produce and interact with the built environments and systemic constructs that order our lives. Often reflecting an increasingly globalized urban experience, these varied works—including An Te Liu’s Cloud, composed of recycled air purifiers—offer imaginative new perspectives on our surroundings and the ever-evolving conditions of our existence.
