The work is titled mother wheel and will take place on MOCA’s Ground Floor. mother wheel is an improvised physical study researched and performed by Katie Adams-Gossage that occupies Phyllida Barlow’s Eleven Columns. The ephemeral nature of dance is cradled here by its setting and morphs the apparent permanence of Barlow’s imposing work.

7pm–7am

  • Join Pride Toronto on Floor 5 for Hanlan’s: Out of the Closet, an exhibition which engages 2SLGBTQI+ narratives as they intertwine with the natural world, and examines the historical importance of Hanlan’s Point Beach as an integral part of Toronto’s queer histories.
