Power Ball 2017



The Power Plant Con­tem­po­rary Art Gallery threw the 19th edi­tion of its iconic Toronto art gala, Power Ball, on June 1st. This year’s theme, Stereo Vi­sion, trans­ported guests to a world of dis­cov­ery, ex­plor­ing ideas of al­ter­nate re­al­i­ties, mul­ti­ple di­men­sions, and fan­tasy. Af­ter a sneak peek of Max Mara’s Fall ’17 col­lec­tion, Power Ball’s pre­sent­ing spon­sor, the night kicked off with a VIP party con­cep­tu­al­ized by Mex­ico Ci­ty­based de­sign duo Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo and Mecky Reuss. Part­ner­ing with per­for­mance artist Francesco Pe­draglio, the trio cre­ated a VIP-fête-meets-in­stal­la­tion through dis­torted vi­su­als pro­jected onto walls and ob­scure per­for­mance artists scat­tered among the crowd. Later, doors opened to more par­ty­go­ers and to the rest of the gallery’s spa­ces with in­stal­la­tions by artists Daniel Bar­row and Kelly Richardson, a con­cert on the pa­tio fea­tur­ing al­ter­na­tive-pop duo The Dar­cys, and vi­brant beats by DJs Ralph and Yu­kn­odis.
