The Power Plant: Time Of Change + Witness

We have partnered with The Power Plant in supporting two incredible shows; Time Of Change (October 13, 2023 – March 24, 2024) by Anna Boghiguian, and Witness (on now until August 11, 2024) by June Clark at the Power Plant.

June Clark: Witness is the first survey in Canada of the Toronto-based artist June Clark, who, since the late 1960s, has developed a unique and groundbreaking practice spanning photo-based work, text, collage, installation, and sculptural assemblages. Born in Harlem, New York, Clark immigrated to Canada in 1968 and subsequently made Toronto her home. The questions of identity formation and their connection to our points of origin fuel her practice. In this deeply personal exhibition, she explores how history, memory, and identity—both individual and collective—have established the familial and artistic lineages that shape her work. June Clark: Witness will be presented in tandem with another solo exhibition of the artist’s work at the Art Gallery of Ontario titled June Clark: Unrequited Love.

Anna Boghiguian: Time of Change maps the Egyptian-Canadian artists origins Anna Boghiguian’s interest in revolutionary upheavals spurred by political, social, and cultural ideas in the Americas, Europe, and North Africa. Drawing inspiration from her vast travels throughout Canada and the globe, Boghiguian, examines the impact individuals have on history and how history impacts individuals. This exhibition presents installations and drawings—some newly commissioned for this exhibition. Presented are works that chronicle seismic geopolitical shifts, and their aftermaths in our world order. Collectively, these works respond to overlapping histories of power relations, societal transformations, and the birth of political ideologies.
