Contact Camp:

 In connection to the upcoming solo exhibitions at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery by artists Abbas Akhavan (based in Toronto) and Ellen Gallagher (based in New York and Rotterdam), youth will learn how a variety of mediums may be used to consider history, narrative and mythology.

Gallagher’s work includes abstract watercolour painting, illustrative drawing, and films that incorporate both analogue and 3D animation to create stories rooted in historical events.

Akhavan’s site-specific commission in The Power Plant’s Clerestory will use a mosaic of coloured film on the skylights to create a light painting on the gallery walls, while a fountain installed in the centre of the space creates a meeting place for visitors, as well as setting the stage for Toronto writers to contribute fictional texts. Inspired by both artists, youth participants will write stories and then transform their stories into finished drawings, paintings or stop-motion animations.
