The Power Plant announces Dissenting Histories. 25 Years of The Power Plant

The Power Plant presents Dissenting Histories. 25 Years of The Power Plant, on view 24 March–3 September, 2012. Curated by Melanie O’Brian, Curator & Head of Programs.

Dissenting Histories: 25 Years of The Power Plant is a dynamic project designed to exhibit, activate, reconsider, and put into dialogue the gallery’s rich histories. Designed by Markus Miessen, a German architect and writer who has considered the history of the institution at length and contributed to our thinking about participation in public space and design, this space will consider the gallery’s history within local and international contexts, as well as within present spatial and theoretical concerns.

Over an extended period, the space will offer visitors the opportunity to see rotating artist interventions responding to our archives, talks around The Power Plant’s history and special presentations organized around specific thematics such as institutional memory, changing technologies and aesthetics, and Toronto’s contemporary art history. All will take place on-site, making available print materials, video, slides, and other treasures from the archival vaults.
