Franz Erhard Walther’s first major solo exhibition in Canada brings together bodies of work produced between the 1950s to the present. Call to Action offers insight into Walther’s radical ideas about the relationship between space, object and the human body. Presenting sculptural form, drawing and video, Walther’s influential work emphasizes action in all his work.
Ulla von Brandenburg’s major exhibition will include a new film and installation, both responsive to the site where the film is shot, Théâtre des Amandiers, France, and the space of the exhibition at The Power Plant.
Ulla von Brandenburg has developed a visual art practice in which films, performances, sculptures, installations, books and drawings exist side by side. The apparatuses in her films and installations echos those found in the history of theatre and stage design.
The Cage is a Stage, a co-commissioned project by Los Angeles-based artist Emily Mast. In her choreographed performances and installations, Mast incorporates bodies, movement, sound, and light as live sculptural material. Her work emerges from collaborative practices that celebrate their ambiguous position between art, theatre, poetry and dance.
