We weren't thrilled with the artist who was displaying, therefore it doesn't get a very high review for the gallery. It's worth a stop though and it's like a flip of a coin. You could love it or you could hate it. I certainly wouldn't...More

Very small, very minimalistic, very hipster-y. I liked it though. Was a very short visit but it was free to enter so that is okay. Nice and quiet place, very peaceful end to a busy day.

We enjoyed 2 guided tours and the docent was amazing. She obviously loves art and her job. She gave a brief overview, then let us view the art. After that, we would discuss what we'd seen. Both tour were informative and entertaining.

This gallery displays exhibitions by some of the world's most renowned and emerging contemporary artists. Although small, it is a nice change to mega-galleries which take hours to go through. The intimate scale really allows you to contemplate the ideas put forth in the exhibitions...More

Compact in size, but large in innovative ideas. This gallery is just a few steps from Granville and is well worth a visit.

Every visit to Vancouver includes this out of the way gallery that is worth searching out if you want to be pushed into another aspect of modern art. Small, usually two or three rooms. Admission free. The most recent show was totemic sculptures of found...More
