In Wednesday April 28, the Visiting Artist’s Talk features London-based, Canadian artist Mark Lewis who creates film installations that explore the pictorial possibilities of
the moving image. In addition to a National Gallery of Canada solo exhibition in 2000, Lewis has participated in the 2002 Liverpool Biennial and the 2002 Gwangju Biennial. He will be exhibiting at Toronto’s Monte Clark Gallery in May 2004.

On Wednesday, May 5, The Power Plant will host a panel discussion entitled 21st Century Love. Love is a battlefield, a conundrum and an inspiration for many contemporary artists. Republic of Love artists Shary Boyle and Paul P, along with “eye” weekly columnist Sasha and University of Toronto art historian Alexander Nagel will contemplate relationships, love and desire in art and personal experience.

Point of View Tour: David Moos on Daniel Richter – on Sunday, May 16 the newly appointed Curator of Contemporary Art for the Art Gallery of Ontario leads a p.o.v. tour.

The Power Plant announces Power Ball 6 . On Thursday, June 3, the gallery opens its doors to host one of Toronto’s most exciting fundraising parties with some of the city’s hippest attendees.
