Toronto gets set to celebrate the “Gorgeously Flawed” at Power Ball 8!

Power Ball 8, The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery’s annual fundraising event that brings together the who’s who of Toronto’s contemporary arts and culture worlds - is set to turn heads again this year with “Gorgeously Flawed”.

Power Ball 8 will be held on Thursday, June 1, 2006 at The Power Plant at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. Power Ball 8 will awe guests in inventive and electrifying ways. Contemporary art, music, film and fashion will fuse in dynamic settings to reflect various interpretations of “Gorgeously Flawed”, pillared on the idea that beauty stems from imperfection.

“Think: ‘Kate Moss on the Rocks’,” says Gregory Burke, Director of The Power Plant. “This year we are taking it up yet another notch at Power Ball 8 to reflect in, dare I say, shocking ways, the vitality of contemporary artists - it’s strongly connected to what we do year-round at The Power Plant by showcasing some of the world’s best and most thought-provoking works.”

Each year, The Power Plant opens its doors to Toronto’s, and indeed Canada’s taste leaders who support the gallery’s annual exhibition and educational programming schedule through this unique fundraising event.
