The Power Plant’s new director is Quebecer Gaëtane Verna
After an “extensive international search,” the Power Plant has found its new director right next door in Quebec. Gaëtane Verna is currently executive director and chief curator at the Musée d’art de Joliette in Lanaudière, and from 1998 to 2006 was curator of the Foreman Art Gallery of Bishop’s University. “Gaëtane Verna comes to Toronto with an outstanding set of achievements, exemplifying her competence in all capacities of museum operations,” Power Plant president Shanitha Kachan said in a release. Verna will be taking over from acting director Christy Thompson, who has been keeping order since the fabulous Gregory Burke’s departure. Visitors will be able to see Verna’s handiwork in March, when the whole gallery becomes free to enter.
