September 5 – December 29, 2013 at MOCCA
This exhibition features six new TIFF-commissioned artworks by leading Canadian and international contemporary artists who share David Cronenberg's inspirations from literature and philosophy — writers such as McLuhan, Burroughs and Ballard — and his fascination with biological horror, the human psyche and the merging of humans and media. Artists featured: Candice Breitz, James Coupe, Marcel Dzama, Jeremy Shaw, Jamie Shovlin, and Laurel Woodcock. Curated by Noah Cowan and David Liss, Artistic Director & Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA), David Cronenberg: Transformation is presented in partnership with MOCCA.
