The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery says
Since 2006, Power Talks has partnered with Art Toronto to present influential art-world figures who discuss their projects, preoccupations and ideas in the context of the city’s largest art fair. Participants range from leading collectors, advisors and dealers to internationally renowned museum directors, curators, critics, scholars, and artists.

Artist Diego Bianchi was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1969, where he still lives and works. He studied graphic design at Buenos Aires University and in 2003–05 was a recipient of the prestigious Guillermo Kuitca grant, one of the few programs in Argentina that establish mentorships for young artists. In his Power Talk, Bianchi will share his perception of artistic practice as a testing ground and space of experimentation where the things of the world can establish unprecedented relations. He is interested in re-examining the ideas of progress, value, law, education and beauty. He writes: “I understand the artist to be a social actor who, by means of his or her practice, is capable of observing, manipulating, and liberating things and persons from their specific conditions so that they can be others. This practice can reorganize and revert the form of the given.” Bianchi will discuss how art can continue to come up with findings that challenge meaning or bottle it at an embryonic state and how to generate acts of sheer communication, that is, non-digitalized or pre-established communication.
