The Power Plant


Ydessa Hendeles’ exhibition The Milliner’s Daughter explores the ways that communities gather by assembling found objects called “curatorial compositions”. Hendeles uses these compositions as an avenue to open discourse about memory and its relationship to identity.

To explore this theme from diverse perspectives, The Power Plant will host a panel discussion led by Dr. Shelley Hornstein, Professor of Architectural History and Visual Culture at York University, and author of and contributor to multiple books and anthologies related to memory in visual art, especially following the atrocities of the Second World War. Panelists will include Toronto-based artist Jessica Karuhanga; Dr. Carson Phillips, Managing Director, Neuberger Holocaust Centre; and Dr. Abraham Snaiderman, Director, Neuropsychiatry Clinic, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, UHN.
