PIICA Neon Sign


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?

Recognizing the evolving nature of the term equity and what it represents, Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art’s Equity Committee exists to understand and inform the organization’s work as an ICA. The Equity Committee provides advice and guidance related to equity in every aspect of the organization’s mandate.
