Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver

The Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG) is an independent, non-profit public art gallery and one of Canada’s leading venues for contemporary art. Offering free access to everyone, we work with artists from Canada and around the world to produce exhibitions, off-site projects, residencies, learning, outreach, community engagement programs, events and publications. Each of these interdependent strands of programming varies in scale, duration and location to challenge how and where we might engage with contemporary visual art.

Education is key to our activities, promoting knowledge, understanding and debate for the broadest range of constituencies. Our learning and public program activities include talks, multilingual guided tours, youth programs and workshops for schools and families, emphasizing the importance of personal experience, celebrating creativity and stimulating an enthusiasm for knowledge through engagement with contemporary visual art.

With gratitude as guests, the Contemporary Art Gallery acknowledges that the land on which we operate is the unceded and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
