TORONTO - Presented by Max Mara for the second consecutive year, this year’s event theme, Pleasure Principle, calls on guests to explore their desires within the gallery’s art-filled spaces, each featuring a different artist project and a different party atmosphere.

VIP ticket holders start the evening at 7 p.m. with modernist cocktails prepared by BarChef, and a special production by New York-based artist Ryan McNamara. Remaining spaces open at 9 p.m., showcasing work by several Canadian artists including an opium den installation by Karen Tam and an exploration of (over)stimulation and sensuality by Laura Kikauka, among many other works.

Chicago house music pioneer DJ Mark Farina and two of Toronto’s most talked about DJs, Teo Nio and CRSB, will provide musical entertainment throughout the evening. Max Mara will also have an on-site presence throughout the event with visual installations that represent the brand’s heritage, as well as performances by contemporary ballet dancer and choreographer Javon Jones, winner of the Max Mara Young Visionary Award for the National Young Arts Foundation.

Funds raised through Power Ball are vital in supporting The Power Plant, Toronto’s leading public gallery dedicated exclusively to contemporary visual art.
