TODAY: Power Plant Artist Talk: Karla Black

Monday, October 15, 2018 - 7:30pm

The Power Plant partners with OCAD University to present:  Artist Talk by Karla Black

Monday, October 15, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.

OCAD University
100 McCaul St. (MCA)
Auditorium (Room 190)

In conjunction with her first exhibition in Canada, the internationally acclaimed artist will speak about the evolution of her work.

Karla Black’s sculptures hover between sculpture, painting, installation, and performance, challenging easy categorization. Her work comprises everyday materials such as eye shadow, Vaseline, lipstick, cotton wool and toilet paper, alongside more traditional art-making mediums, to produce immersive experiences. In 2011, the artist represented Scotland at the 54th Venice Biennale and was nominated for the Turner Prize.

Karla Black Solo Exhibition opens Friday, October 19, 2018, at the Power Plant. For more information about the exhibition, please click HERE

AT NUIT BLANCHE: A MONUMENT TO THE CENTURY OF REVOLUTIONS
The Summit coincides with A Monument to the Century of Revolutions, a work by renowned Russian collective Chto Delat, curated by Creative Time Artistic Director Nato Thompson, and designed by famed architect Yury Avvakumov (Moscow) for Nuit Blanche Toronto. The immersive installation is a living monument, consisting of an array of containers producing a small village housing works from Chto Delat and local artist activist groups reflecting on the history and future of revolution. With individual and collective actions on Nathan Philips Square and stage, City Hall will transform into a veritable mass-shipped revolution that unpacks into a world.
