Event Details

Tea Base is a curious community arts space tucked away in Tkaronto/Toronto's Chinatown Centre Mall. The community aims to make accessible space for intergenerational activists and artists who support social justice movements in and around Chinatown. Tea Base is a space that develops solidarity across marginalized groups through relationships, joy and collaboration.

From December 2020 until May 2021, the collective Tea Base will be in residence with the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Toronto. Tea Base is creating opportunities for MOCA's guests and our community more broadly to engage with art digitally. During our virtual residency, we will offer virtual workshops, a sound installation, as well as a variety of performances.

Mahjon Performances:

Join Tea Base at MOCA for a series of performative Mahjong games and sanitation performances. Members of the Tea Base collective will play this popular East/South-East Asian game, which they work with as a tool for social engagement, atop the painted platforms of Archipelago created by Michael Lin.

In-performances will be scheduled once the Museum is permitted to reopen and, while we continue to practice physical distancing, Tea Base has created an instructional manual that is available here: https://moca.ca/wp-con-tent/uploads/TeaBasesMahjongInstructionBooklet-ver-final.pdf
