Support Our Program

The Contemporary Art Gallery is reliant on donations and support from the public to bring the following to Vancouver each year:

— Dynamic exhibitions
— Educational programming and public outreach
— Talks, panel discussions and tours
— Residencies
— Special off-site projects

Our mandate is to provide a context for the work of Vancouver and Canadian artists which we achieve through juxtaposition with work of those from elsewhere. Our program encompasses local, emerging artists through to those established internationally.

Each show is different but aims to examine current issues in global contemporary visual art that has resonance at a local level. Through this we bring a breadth of exciting, insightful and meaningful ways of looking at our world to a Vancouver audience.
