Founded in 1973, La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse is one of Quebec’s oldest artist-run centers. The gallery exhibits and serves a broad spectrum of artists and their projects, that are often under-represented within established art institutions.
Its mandate expands on a history of feminist art practices and aims to provide a platform for contemporary art that is informed by feminist and gender theory, as well as intercultural and transdisciplinary practices. This involves the development of artistic and professional exchange at the local, national and international levels. We promote the work of artists at all stages of their careers to encourage intergenerational dialogue.
