Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art

Established in 1972, Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art is Canada’s oldest ICA with a holistic mandate to support all aspects of art-making by presenting, producing and circulating contemporary art through research, exhibitions, publications, education, outreach and advocacy. Plug In ICA continually addresses itself to these core questions: what is contemporary art, how does it function in and define community, and what is its social value?
