Founded in 1973, La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse is one of Quebec’s oldest artist-run centres. Feminist in orientation, the centre was created when three members of the group The Flaming Aprons sent out a call to women artists interested in meeting to discuss the difficulties they experienced in seeking to exhibit their works in a professional context.

The gallery’s mandate expands on a history of feminist art practices and aims to improve the visibility of artists and initiatives that are often under-represented within established art institutions. The centre aims to provide a platform for contemporary art that is informed by feminist and gender theory, as well as intercultural and transdisciplinary practices. The centre promotes the work of artists at all stages of their careers in order to encourage intergenerational dialogue.
