Meet the current OSC artists:

PA System Art Collective

PA System art collective, a collaboration between artists Alexa Hatanaka and Patrick Thompson, are the current OSC resident artists at MOCA until March 15, 2019. They create public artwork and work in textile, printmaking, painting, and video. They exhibit in institutions internationally, such as the Canada House in London, the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona and the Art Gallery of Ontario. PA System’s recent work is informed by their time spent over the past six years in Kinngait (Cape Dorset, Nunavut), where their ongoing project Embassy of Imagination (EOI) is based. EOI is a visual art and social practice working with and for Kinngait youth.

PA System art collective invites everyone to help create part of the ongoing work Resolution (Mass of Clarity).

The Alien Agencies Collective
We are a group of artists who wish to produce radical artworks with life as our medium. As a connective thread between our works, we envision a mix of artworks that focus on site-specific non-human e.g. microbial and mycelial exchanges that will take the form of displayed photographs, sculptural forms and participatory workshops.

With a collective emphasis on ‘alien’ or unfamiliar artistic practices, we will use the OSC/MOCA residency as an experiment towards the production of new sentiments, sensations and interconnections, highlighting the aesthetic agencies of non-human entities and our entanglements with them.

Alien Agencies Collective is:
