Power Ball, The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery’s major annual fundraiser, has set the standard as one of the most influential and vibrant art galas in Toronto. Attracting a sophisticated mix of Toronto notables and taste makers, the party brings together the worlds of fashion, film, media, finance, advertising, music and the visual arts.
Power Ball is famed for transforming each gallery space into an immersive art experience, allowing guests to enjoy the luxuries of a vivacious party, all while being surrounded by site-specific works of art. In it’s 21st edition, The Power Plant revealed this year’s theme as Power Ball: 21 Club and is excited to welcome Holt Renfrew as the Presenting Sponsor
On 6 June 2019, The Power Plant will transform into an illicit speakeasy where guests can expect an evening of grit, glitz and glamour with unique art installations, performances and cocktails. Party-goers can swill hooch, explore, and experience the hidden corners of a new elusive art world.
Visual artist and storyteller Sarah Keenlyside, will present the pre-party activations. Her work crosses disparate disciplines, yet shares common threads — often incorporating immersive performances, displays and props. Keenlyside will transport guests into a space where the glorious dance of service forms the centrepiece of an epic meal – an ode to speakeasies and a Busby Berkeleyesque celebration of the craft of service. Food by La Banane, Man Ray à vin, CXBO Chocolates and drinks from FIOL Prosecco will be woven into the immersive performance that blurs the lines between reality and historicity.
Artists including Max Streicher, Bruno Billio and The Intergenerational LGBT Artist Residency will be among some of the creative minds behind the main party activations.
