Event and Venue Rental



An event at the Contemporary Art Gallery is memorable and unique. Rentals are available from 6pm, all day on Mondays, plus possibilities at other times throughout the year dependent upon the exhibition schedule. Due to the changing nature of our exhibitions there may be considerations that restrict how the space can be used; stand-up cocktail receptions can almost always be accommodated regardless of the exhibition on view.

Please note that the display or exhibition of other artworks is not permitted.

For more information contact Kristin Cheung, Development Officer, at 604 681 2700 or [email protected]
