The Power Plant Gallery, an initiative of the Center for Documentary Studies and the MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts, is an off-site extension of the arts at Duke, promoting visual arts engagement with students, faculty, and visitors from Durham and beyond. With 1,500 square feet of exhibition space, the gallery features a rotating program of work by Duke students, faculty, and visiting scholars, as well as locally, nationally, and internationally recognized artists working in a range of media, from photography and painting to video and installation. A new and exciting addition to the growing, vibrant Durham art scene, the Power Plant Gallery is a laboratory for the arts, providing ongoing opportunities for engagement with art practices that consider the essential role and transformative capacity of the arts in society.
