During the COVID-19 pandemic, The Power Plant's Fall 2020 exhibitions, including Howie Tsui's From swelling shadows, we draw our bows, have been in lockdown -- seen only in the virtual tour. While artist Howie Tsui has participated in several programs sharing insights about his work, for this Field Trip program, we gain critical perspective from artist and curator Aden Solway.

Trained as a historian, Solway has held positions across three continents, supporting projects led by The Art Gallery Of Ontario (AGO), Scotiabank Contact Festival, The Whitney Museum of American Art, Princeton University, The Art Institute of Chicago and York University. Over the last decade, they have maintained residency and fellowship positions at Banff Center for Arts and Creativity (Canada), Museum of Contemporary Art (Toronto) and Cornell University (NYC). Solway is the founder of Closed Office, a research laboratory that investigates the myriad intersections of urbanism, performance and art.
