In Summer 1997, The Power Plant presented Rococo Tattoo: The Ornamental Impulse in Toronto Art, curated by Philip Monk. It was a survey of Toronto art that combines both diverse practices and artists at different stages in their careers that combine the decorative and the inscriptive, the public and the private, the ostentatious and the subversive to reveal their concerns – especially the obsessive impulse to adorn the body.
