"Wit, Wonder and Whirling Wigs"
2001-06-23 until 2001-09-03
Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery
Toronto, ON, CA

The Power Plant, Canadas leading non-collecting contemporary art gallery, opens its doors this summer with exhibitions that focus attention on two of Canadas most critically acclaimed artists. Kim Adams, organized bower Plant Director Marc Mayer and Marla Hlady, organized by Xandra Eden, run from June 23 through September 3, 2001 and are part of the series of monographic show that celebrate Toronto artists. The Public Programmes related to these exhibitions are made possible by CIBC Wood Gundy, The Power Plants Primary Education Sponsor.

Kim Adams is one of Canadas most internationally celebrated artists. In his first survey in Toronto, The Power Plant exhibition features work from 1986-2001, including large sculptural installations, small models and drawings, and a new outdoor installation created specially for this exhibition, thanks to the generosity of Unicell Ltd. and John Deere Ltd.

Over the last twenty-five years, Kim Adams has created a lively and sophisticated body of sculpture by transforming the ordinary manufactured things of modern life. Through judicious alteration and playful manipulation, industrial objects, consumer goods, train model set parts, discarded vehicles and toys become miniature worlds, fantastical machines, and nomadic habitats.

Born in Edmonton in 1950, Kim Adams grew up in Australia and now lives just outside of Toronto. He has been a frequent participant in major solo and group exhibitions in Canada and in some of the most prestigious international art exhibitions, including Skulptur Projekt 97 Munster in Germany, and InSite 97 in San Diego and Tijuana. Concurrent to his Power Plant exhibition, Adams is featured in exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery and Oakville Galleries.

An 80-page publication with an artist interview with Marc Mayer and articles by Tomas Pospiszyl, Curator, Collection of Modern and Contemporary Art, National Gallery of Prague, and Marnie Fleming, Curator of Contemporary Art, Oakville Galleries will complement the exhibition.
