MOCA will be transformed into an interactive art party by a group of Toronto’s talented emerging artists. This building, at 158 Sterling Road, was once the site of legendary illicit dance parties, raves, and punk gigs. Taking inspiration from this past, underground nightlife hub, we will revive its wild legacy for one night only with amazing art and music, lighting MOCA up in the dark. Starting at 9pm, come play with artist-led interactive installations and activities on the ground floor. Dance among art with beats by DJ Lulu Wei and DJ Sammy Rawal on our blacklight dance floor.

This party is presented with the exhibition 'An Index' which features 24 artists from the inaugural Akin Studio Program. An Index makes visible the labours of artistic creation through an open and honest charting of the processes, challenges, delights, and failures of making art in the city. Night Visions credits the importance of social play in creative production. For the first time ever MOCA Goes Dark, and invites you to explore the museum transformed by local artists.
