The Party
Power Ball

Thursday, 4 June 2020
Pre-Party from 7pm – 9pm
Power Ball Party from 9pm – Late

The Power Plant presents a collection of sensory shocks, perceptual distortions and acoustic experiences, stuck together with safety pins. Power Ball: AURAL SECTS is a celebration of the visually loud, the non-conforming and the unexpected that will maraud your mind with sound and moments of reverent silence.

AURAL SECTS explores sonic movements and moments that exist on the fringe and butt heads with the mainstream. The evening will pair visual art activations with acoustic experiences to incite conversations around subversion, DIY practice and how art contributes to resistance.

Join us for an evening of unique art installations, performances, cocktails and more—all in support of the ambitious exhibitions and programming at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery.

About Power Ball

From its inception in 1999, Power Ball has thrived as an ambitious fundraising event that provides vital funds for exhibitions and public programs at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery. The party has since set the standard as one of the most influential and vibrant art galas in Toronto, fulfilling The Power Plant’s vision to influence and refresh the mainstream for international contemporary art.
