The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery hosted “Power Ball XIX: Stereo Vision” on June 1 in Toronto. The event, sponsored by Max Mara, led hundreds of guests through a captivating experience where they analyzed the connection between “the real and the represented,” alternate realities and multiple dimensions. Different interactive art installations located throughout the space fused art, food, fashion, and culture.
Luxury Italian fashion house Max Mara welcomed guests, including Pedro&Juana, Francesco Pedraglio, Daniel Barrow, Tyler Shaw, Amanda Brugel, Sarah Gadon, Kardinall Offishall, Kristin Booth, Fefe Dobson, Mike and Rhianna Weaver, Ann Kaplan, Jana Webb, Joan Kelley Walker, Gregoriane Minot, Hayley Elsaesser, Dean and Dan Caten. Guests enjoyed an outdoor terrace designed by by Paul Zingrone.
Torrance Hall, a 17-year old photographer from Virginia, and winner of the National YoungArts Foundation’s 2017 Max Mara Young Visionary Award featured his latest photography series, “Outstet,” as well.
At the VIP reception, Pedro&Juana collaborated with Francesco Pedraglio to create a party within a party, consisting of six vignette performances during the reception. Drake Catering created a menu to complement the theme of the night.
Canadian artist Daniel Barrow presented Learning to Breathe Underwater and House on Fire. Barrow’s work is made up of fantasy, empathy, isolation and queerness. Kelly Richardson, a leading emerging artist working with digital technologies, presented The Erudition.
This year’s entertainment sponsor, WayHome Music & Arts filled the east terrace with the sounds of Toronto duo Darcys. DJ Ralph and DJ Yuknodis kept guests entertained in the main gallery all evening.
