DEMOS - A Reconstruction
Museum of Contemporary Art, Toronto
As part of the intention to create a more welcoming and community based installation at the museum, I worked collaboratively with the team to design a programming plan that identified the ground floor as the site of the Invitation Project. This was a proposed series of site-responsive installations that straddle the disciplines of art, architecture and social engagement to explore the formation of social space. Andreas Angelidakis’s DEMOS – A Reconstruction was an installation of 74 foam modules that visitors of all ages can move and rearrange.
Evidence of Outcome:
successful project aligned with MOCA brand and community focused, generous, inviting, welcoming, playful, and accessible to all ages
developed on a moderate budget with significant audience impact engaging over 20,000 visitors in the first weekend
significantly increased the attraction of the museum for families and young children and attendance of this demographic
