Membership Card Commissioning Program


The Power Plant’s Membership Card Commissioning Program began in 2009, with Members receiving a designed Membership Card featuring artwork by Kelly Mark. Cards in subsequent years featured the work of Derek Sullivan, Jennifer Murphy, Ryan Brewer and AA Bronson, Vasco Araújo, Patrick Bernatchez, Ulla von Brandenburg, Maria Hupfield, Kader Attia, and Shuvinai Ashoona. The Membership Card Commission for 2020 is by Vincent Meessen, one of the artists featured in the gallery’s Fall 2019 Exhibition Season.

Belgian artist Vincent Meessen often works collaboratively, drawing on the combined knowledge of collectives to conceive exhibitions and projects that investigate the construction of colonial modernity and its impact on contemporary experience.
