What’s on

Book Shop

The CAG Book Shop offers a range of publications, catalogues, artists’ limited editions and other materials for sale. As a non-profit charity, all revenue made from our shop goes straight back into supporting programming costs.

Resource Room

Located alongside our Book Shop is a visitor Resource Room, providing interpretive and contextual materials supporting our exhibitions, off-site projects and residencies. These resources include specially made artist files, books, texts and videos that open up multiple entry points into the work on display.

Off-site

As well as housing exhibitions within the gallery, CAG hosts additional off-site exhibitions at various locations year round. Our permanent off-site location is at Yaletown-Roundhouse Station on the corner of Mainland and Davie Streets.

This public exhibition space facilitates the extension of our programming beyond the confines of the gallery and into the public realm, engaging with broader audiences and challenging conceptions of public art displays.
