Kapwani Kiwanga: Remediation
MOCA is excited to present the first major survey exhibition in Canada of Canadian-French artist Kapwani Kiwanga. Kiwanga creates installation, sculpture, and performance as well as video and sound pieces to explore the relationships between historical narratives, systems of power, and the use of material within these contexts.
For her exhibition at MOCA, Kiwanga presents five new commissions, including a site-specific version of her ongoing sisal installations on the Museum’s free-of-charge Ground Floor, as well as flooring and window interventions.
Through this curated selection, Kiwanga expands on her research into how botany has long held a relationship to exploitation and acts of resistance and how plant life has and may intervene in the rejuvenation of contaminated environments.
Remediation will open at MOCA Toronto as part of the Spring 2023 exhibition alongside artists Athena Papadopoulos, Susan for Susan and Serkan Özkaya.
