The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery is Canada’s leading non-collecting, public art gallery dedicated exclusively to contemporary visual art from Canada and the world. As a vital forum for the advanced artistic culture of our time, the gallery offers an exceptional facility and professional support to a diverse group of living artists – while engaging equally diverse audiences in their work.
The Power Plant’s Winter 2017 Exhibition Season, on view from 28 January to 14 May 2017, launched the gallery’s 30th anniversary year with three major solo exhibitions by artists Jonathas de Andrade, Maria Hupfield and Kapwani Kiwanga, and the second edition of the Fleck Clerestory Commission Project by Latifa Echakhch still on view. With the shows presented against the backdrop of Canada’s sesquicentennial, The Power Plant aims to inspire visitors in 2017 to consider the lives of those who lived and co-existed on the land before the 1867 Confederation, and to explore the consequences of a colonial past on our present—in Canada and beyond.
