SEPTEMBER 6 TO OCTOBER 26  The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art finds itself at a crossroads. For nearly 10 years it has been a hub of the Queen West Art and Design District, presenting challenging visuals in a useful though relatively small space. But like many things in Toronto, MOCCA’s home will soon be razed to make way for condos. The museum’s search for a new facility provides an opportunity to reflect on its principles and purpose; its latest exhibition, titled TBD, asks the question “What is a contemporary art gallery?” The manifold “to be determined” answers are provided by 70 jury-selected proposals submitted by architects—considering the interrelations between art, audience and gallery—as well as works and “community engagement activities” by artists known for their incisive examinations of the culture industry.  —Craig Moy
