Power Talks: Carla Fernández at The Power Plant, Toronto


The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery is Canada’s leading public art gallery dedicated exclusively to contemporary visual art from Canada and the world. It is a vital forum for the advanced artistic culture of our time that offers an exceptional facility and professional support to a diverse group of living artists while engaging equally diverse audiences in their work. The Power Plant fulfills its mandate by generating: exhibitions that represent the range of advanced practice in visual arts; publications that provide in-depth explorations of contemporary art; lectures and symposia that encourage debate and further understanding; interpretative tools that invite visitors to question, explore and reflect upon their experiences; programming that incorporates other areas of culture at their intersection with visual art.


What is Power Talks?

Since 2006, Power Talks has partnered with Art Toronto to present influential art-world figures who discuss their projects, preoccupations and ideas in the context of the city’s largest art fair. Participants range from leading collectors, advisors and dealers to internationally renowned museum directors, curators, critics, scholars, and artists.

In her Power Talk, Fernández will speak about her approach to preserving the rich cultural heritage of Mexico’s indigenous communities.
