The Power Plant is Canada’s leading public gallery devoted exclusively to the presentation of contemporary art, artists and ideas through ground-breaking exhibitions, award-winning publications, and public programs.
The Power Plant’s mandate continues to be a touchstone guiding our vision, goals and objectives.
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. It is a vital forum for the advanced artistic culture of our time that 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 fulfills its mandate by generating: exhibitions that represent the range of advanced practice in visual arts; publications that provide in-depth explorations of contemporary art; lectures and symposia that encourage debate and further understanding; interpretative tools that invite visitors to question, explore and reflect upon their experiences; programming that incorporates other areas of culture at their intersection with visual art.
The Power Plant will be a leading international centre for contemporary art, renowned for its diverse programming and exceptional commitment to groundbreaking contemporary Canadian art. It will be widely supported as an institution that has become essential to the cultural infrastructure in Toronto, Ontario, and Canada.
