In conjunction with Mario Pfeifer’s first exhibition in Canada, The Power Plant presents a conversation between Pfeifer and renowned Canadian artist, Stan Douglas. The two first met when Douglas was a professor of photography and new media at the Universität der Künste Berlin (2004–06) and Pfeifer was a student (2005–07). The conversation will conclude with questions from the audience.

Since 1990 his films, videos and photographs have been seen in exhibitions internationally including four Venice Biennales and Documentas IX, X and XI.

He was the 2016 recipient of the Hasselblad Prize and since 2009 he has been a core faculty member in the Grad Art Department of Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
