MOCCA has commissioned Toronto-based artist Jason McLean to produce 9-5, (2009), a limited edition four-colour silkscreen print on archival paper. The prints will be exclusively available during the fair, and with only thirty prints available at a very reasonable price of $800.00 they will be sure to sell quickly. All proceeds from the sale will contribute to the support of programming initiatives at MOCCA.
Jason McLean graduated from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1997, and has since received wide national and international acclaim. His diverse practice includes drawing, sculpture, installation, sound performance and mail art. Much of his work contains collaborative elements. In 2008, McLean re-located his practice from Vancouver to Toronto.
In 2009 his work has been included in the exhibitions Pulp Fiction and Arena: Road Game, at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, as well as a solo exhibition at Jessica Bradley Art + Projects in Toronto. In recent years his work has been included in solo and group exhibitions in New York, Miami, Malmo, Padova, Berlin, Madrid, Mexico City, and Dublin and he is represented internationally by Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, U.S.A, Perugi ArteContemporanea Gallery, in Padova, Italy, and LaViolaBank Gallery, in New York City, U.S.A.
