The windswept Ralph Rugoff

We got an e-mail from The Power Plant* Contemporary Art Gallery to let Brits in Toronto readers know of an upcoming program that may be of interest.

On Monday, April 16 the gallery will welcome Ralph Rugoff as a speaker in its International Lecture Series. The Power Plant’s long-running International Lecture Series brings some of today’s greatest thinkers from around the world — high-profile artist, curators, and cultural commentators — to Toronto.

Ralph Rugoff has been Director of the Hayward Gallery, a renowned contemporary art gallery at London’s Southbank Centre, since 2006. Rugoff was just announced in December 2017 as Artistic Director of the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019. He curated the 13th Biennale de Lyon in 2015, and initiated and co-curated Baja to Vancouver: The West Coast in Contemporary Art, in 2003.

Readers are invited to attend this FREE lecture, taking place at OCADU.

*Brits in Toronto lawyers made us include the disclaimer that The Power Plant should not be confused with The Power Station, and this is not a reunion tour.
