The Galerie de l’UQAM is a university art gallery committed to research and the production of knowledge through exhibitions, public programs and a diverse range of publications. It exhibits mainly contemporary art from Quebec, elsewhere in Canada and abroad. The majority of its exhibitions are curated by recognized professionals and produced by the Galerie. The Galerie also has a mandate to conserve, manage and disseminate the Collection d’œuvres d’art de l’UQAM, composed of artworks which originated as a donation from the École des beaux-arts de Montréal.

The Galerie contributes to the training of students and young professionals in art, art history and museology. To provide experience in preparation for life in the world of art, it cooperates in the dissemination of research and artistic creations by students enrolled in the Université’s visual arts, art history and museology programs, and presents a schedule of creative projects emanating from the master’s and doctoral programs in these disciplines. 

The Galerie increasingly emphasizes the need to preserve a record of the content of these events and thus fosters the writing and promotion of high-level specialized publications, which are distributed in America and Europe and listed in various international contemporary art directories.

Closed during summer.
