ART | Must-See Winter Exhibitions

While any of these winter exhibitions are worth a visit, Patrick Bernatchez’s Les Temps Inachevés at the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery is especially fitting for a chilly day. Expect distinct pieces which explore questions of time: from life and death and the passing of time, to cosmic time and time travel, it’ll be an afternoon of stunning artwork and existential thinking.
