If there’s one thing we know how to do well here in Toronto, it’s how to throw a fabulous party. On Thursday June 2nd, the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in the heart of downtown will be transformed into a playground of pleasure for Power Ball XVIII.
Presenting sponsor Max Mara will host Power Ball for the second consecutive year at the beautiful Power Plant space, located in Toronto’s Harbourfront community (231 Queens Quay West). The theme for this year’s event, Pleasure Principle, calls on guests to explore their desires within the gallery’s art-filled spaces, each featuring a different artist project and a different party atmosphere.
The night starts early for savvy VIP ticket holders, who will get the chance to enjoy modernist cocktails prepared by famed Toronto mixology haven BarChef, and a special production by New York-based artist Ryan McNamara in a secluded part of event space. The rest of the space will open later and will showcase work by several Canadian artists including an opium den installation by Karen Tam and an exploration of (over)stimulation and sensuality by Laura Kikauka, among many other works.

Visual art isn’t the only artform that will be showcased at Powerball. The art of fashion will also be on display, as Max Mara will also have an on-site presence throughout the event with visual installations that represent the brand’s heritage. Party guests will also get the chance to dance to music provided by some amazing artists in their own right; Chicago house music pioneer DJ Mark Farina and two of Toronto’s most talked about DJs, Teo Nio and CRSB, will be manning the decks throughout the evening helping guests dance the night away. Speaking of dancing, guests will be treated to performances by contemporary ballet dancer and choreographerJavon Jones, winner of the Max Mara Young Visionary Award for the National Young Arts Foundation.
And the best part about Power Ball? You’re literally partying for a good cause: funds raised through Power Ball are vital in supporting The Power Plant, Toronto’s leading public gallery dedicated exclusively to contemporary visual art. Do your part and get your ticket now at HarbourfrontCentre.com.
