Power Play: Hockey in Canadian Contemporary Art is an innovative exhibition exploring hockey through the eyes of 14 artists from across Canada. Inspired by the idea that hockey is an inclusive sport, this exhibition explores themes of nationalism, gender, race, equity, sexuality, physical and mental health, and self-esteem. Organized into four sections: hockey jerseys, hockey masks, hockey cards, and hockey equipment, Power Play includes 45 artworks in addition to memorabilia from the Hockey Hall of Fame.

By recognizing that the bodies that play hockey include people from many identities, the artists are proposing revised histories, alternative narratives, and provocative power plays within the game of hockey.

Curated by Jaclyn Meloche, PhD

The Art Gallery of Windsor would like to acknowledge the support of the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Canadian AIDS Society, and the Windsor AIDS Committee for their contributions to the exhibition.
