The Contemporary Art Gallery is a non-profit public art gallery dedicated to the research, exhibition, education, and documentation of contemporary visual art as it is practiced locally through to internationally. It aspires to generate significant audiences for its innovative and diverse programs through free access and a profile that is international in scope.
Established in 1971, the Contemporary Art Gallery is the longest standing free public art gallery in Vancouver dedicated exclusively to presenting contemporary art. By the early 1990s the programme expanded, providing some of the first institutional exhibitions for many important Vancouver artists, including Brian Jungen, Germaine Koh, and Steven Shearer. The Contemporary Art Gallery is a publicly funded institution, generously supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the City of Vancouver, and the Province of BC through the BC Arts Council and the BC Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch. The CAG is very grateful for this support and that which it receives from the Vancouver Foundation and its members, donors, and volunteers.
