We have fond memories of the says that Soulpepper Thetare performed in the Power Plant Theatre. The venue is mostly an art gallery these days, but periodically the theatre comes in to use, as for the current production of Lear, in which Seana McKenna plays...More

This is an interesting gallery, and it's free too. The exhibitions change with some frequency apparently. When we visited it was focused quite heavily on The Congo, but some of the pictures and the story in the 70-minute film were quite engaging. There was also...More

Well curated and pleasant, helpful, unobtrusive staff. Always worth a visit. Great location and building. I'm happy it's survived the surrounding 'condomania'.

I had not been here in many years, but we went to see the exhibit of the unique 'curated art' of Ydessa Hendeles. Very worthwhile. The young staff were exceptionally well-informed, welcoming, and friendly. Easily accessible by car or TTC. Open on Thursday evenings and...More

Whist walking Toronto harbourfront, this gallery provided a striking contrast to our day. The Ydessa Hendeles exhibition showing at the time was interesting and thought provoking. The rooms were clean, cool and we'll staffed.

There were 4 exhibits while we visiting. The content of 3 out of 4 evoked some sadness within me. But I'd rather be affected by art then not. Although a lot more could be done with the space, it's great that they can bring quality...More

This is a great space but with disappointing exhibitions, especially after recently visiting the MAC in Montreal.

We stumbled across this place walking along the harbour front. We loved that the gallery focuses on 2-3 exhibits at a time as to not overwhelm those walking through. We were able to learn so much about the artists and their processes because the staff...More
