The Power Plant Gallery is an initiative of the Center for Documentary Studies and the MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts at Duke University.

A laboratory for documentary and experimental art practices at Duke University, the Power Plant Gallery provides ongoing opportunities for Duke students, faculty and staff, and Durham communities to consider the essential role and transformative capacity of the arts in society.

Featured Opportunity

#PPGArtists Public Studio Residency

Each summer we transform the gallery into the PPGStudios, supporting artists in their creative endeavors. The six-week residencies offer artists and artist groups 24/7 access to our 1500-square-foot facility, along with a $750 honorarium, and public engagement opportunities.
