La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse
4296, Boulevard Saint-Laurent
I have been eagerly awaiting the upcoming exhibition at this gallery. Founded in 1973, La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse was one of the first artist-run centres in Quebec to stem out of the feminist movement. Located on Saint-Laurent Boulevard, off the gallery beaten path, this multidisciplinary art centre has asserted itself by boldly showcasing the works of under-represented artists. These works can range from video displays, to art installations, performing arts presentations, painting exhibitions, works on paper and more. For many emerging, lesser-known artists, this gallery has proven to be a fine venue to gain public exposure. The annual programming of the centre also includes several artist get-togethers and discussion groups which are open to the public.
From April 29th to May 27th, La Centrale will feature Berlin artists Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz’s video adaptation of Pauline Oliveros’ 1970 composition To Valerie Solanas and Marylin Monroe in Recognition of their Desperation. Exploring the unpredictability of music, this presentation holds the promise of sheer originality.
