A Sudden Beginning – Carlos Bunga

February 6, 2020

May 10, 2020

Free to $10

Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto Canada, 158 Sterling Rd, Toronto


Events Description

For his first exhibition in Canada, Bunga has been invited to produce two major site-responsive works for MOCA. Inspired by the simplicity of the museum’s architecture and the rhythm of its columns, Bunga will both stress and challenge the structure’s physicality. His formidable installations and nomadic sensibility will deepen his long-standing inquiry into some of the most poignant subjects of our time: stability, certainty and permanence. Incorporated into the exhibition are several new sculptures made from locally sourced furniture — side tables, writing desks, gilded frames and cabinets — that are reworked into painterly cityscapes. Enlivening Bunga’s project further are short films of performative breakages — the smashing of a lamp, the bursting of a wall — each of which express a rupture’s potential to be as much about a sudden beginning, as it is the sign of an end.
