Bortolotto Design Architect in association with Johnson Chou Design.

The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA) was founded from the former Art Gallery of North York in 1999 and exists as a not-for-profit, arms-length agency of the City of Toronto. The relocation of this thriving exhibition program (completed in association with Johnson Chou) into one of North America’s most dynamic downtown design and art districts helped to give it a more prominent and accessible location; a more relevant backdrop for emerging Canadian and international artists.

Featuring two primary exhibition spaces, the 5,000 sq, ft. Main Space and the 1,000 sq. ft. Project Room, MOCCA presents a variety of original and thought provoking exhibitions. Since 2005, over 800 artists have been featured in more than 80 exhibitions and projects. In addition MOCCA includes work by non-Canadian artists, in group exhibitions, to foster a global context for the Canadian cultural voice.
