This Artist Talk and Conversation is co-presented by The Power Plant and University of Toronto’s MVS Proseminar Series. Kader Attia will start by sharing insights into the core concepts of his exhibition, then transition into a conversation with Charles Stankievech, Director of Visual Studies, about the political issues surrounding the artist’s expanded practice. The discussion will include La Colonie, an innovative project in Paris founded by Attia in 2016, which combines a bar, a place for discourse, and a space for exhibitions.

This program is part of the lectures series Art and Infrastructure for the Master of Visual Studies Proseminar in the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design. The first guest in the series was Vasif Kortun from SALT, Istanbul (in partnership with MOCA, Toronto).
