Mark Dion: The Life of a Dead Tree

Artist Mark Dion brings a massive, fully grown, deceased tree, along with its inhabitants, into MOCA’s exhibition hall for the museum’s first summer exhibition: The Life of a Dead Tree. This specially conceived project marks the 100th anniversary of the Tower Automotive building and brings attention to our role in observing and caring for Toronto’s natural ecosystems.

Appropriately sourced from a cemetery, a site that continues to play a role in sustaining Toronto’s urban forest, the dead tree will be the central host for a “live” and sensory experience.
