The CAG is a place for people of all ages, backgrounds and experiences to learn about contemporary visual art and the captivating ideas it embodies. Our exhibitions and projects engage and appeal to the entire community of Vancouver and further afield; dedicated events and public programs focus on teens, schools and families; and residencies provide opportunities to nurture, support and foster connections to artists and communities alike.
Each year it costs over $800,000 to run the CAG and crucially to provide our exhibitions and programs free to all. We rely on gifts toward our Annual Fund to achieve these ambitious goals and directly offset these costs. Donations from individuals like you will ensure that access to the gallery and to contemporary art is available to the broadest of constituencies, the widest of communities.
The CAG is the longest standing independent public art gallery dedicated to presenting contemporary visual art in Vancouver. We deliver between ten and twenty exciting exhibitions and off-site projects each year, provide an extensive range of learning and public programs for adults, families and children, offer a series of residencies for Canadian and international artists directly contributing to the local scene, and publish insightful catalogues that create a lasting legacy of exhibited work.MORE
