MOCA Toronto is thrilled to present the sixth and final edition of our Art of Propagation speakers series. Artist Jo SiMalaya Alcampo will introduce us to the Singing Plants – keepers of indigenous knowledge, stories and memory. These banana plants respond to human touch with songs – the Hudhud chant of the Ifugao people – and sounds of bamboo instruments and gongs indigenous to the Philippines.

This interactive installation explores our interconnectedness with the land, the need to protect intangible cultural heritage, and honour ancestor spirits.

Free tickets available here:
