View the best in cutting-edge contemporary art this Winter 2018 Season at The Power Plant, on now until 13 May 2018.
Explore the work of three artists, each from different global regions, as they draw connections from their own histories to themes and topics pertinent to Canada’s current social and political landscape.
French-Algerian artist Kader Attia is known for provocative exhibitions that explore colonial legacies. His exhibition at The Power Plant, The Field of Emotion, is a timely examination of matters such as native land and belonging, capitalism and consumption, and migration and movement. The show includes new and existing works on the subject of trauma and repair, both physical and psychological.
Berlin-based Nigerian artist Emeka Ogboh creates installations that examine how private, public and collective memories and histories are translated and transformed into sound. His exhibition, The Song of the Germans, features a work that raises questions of national identity, migration and the changing face of a nation – issues felt by countries around the world today, including Canada.
Michael Landy's project DEMONSTRATION, The Power Plant’s third Fleck Clerestory Commission Project, continues Landy's process-based approach by inviting YOU, the public, to participate in creating a wall of protest. Landy transforms your submissions of images, words, texts or slogans that map their feelings, reactions and experiences of living in Canada into protest drawings pinned directly onto the walls of The Power Plant.
