SEPTEMBER 21 TO JANUARY 5  Systems of description, organization and appraisal have long featured in Micah Lexier’s artistic practice, so it makes sense that a survey of his recent works would be assembled based on by the number of people involved in each piece’s creation. Thus at the Power Plant you’ll find a precise ordering of intriguing visuals, including Self-Portrait as a Wall, the anagrammatic Two Equal Texts, produced with poet Christian Bok, and More Than Two (Let it Make Itself), for which Lexier collected 200-plus pieces by other creators to reflect Toronto’s vibrant art community. It adds up to a multifaceted display at one of the city’s top contemporary galleries.  —Craig Moy
