The AGA remains temporarily closed in the interest of public health and safety.

We are aware of the recent Provincial announcement that museums and galleries will be able to re-open as early as May 14, provided recommended capacity, sanitation and social distancing conditions are met. Our team is currently developing a plan for when the AGA will be able to safely re-open and will be making an announcement shortly.

Thank you for your understanding and patience, keeping our audiences healthy and safe is our first concern.

Sneak Peek: Damian Moppett's Untitled Abstract Drawing in Space

Thanks to an Alberta Foundation for the Arts Public Art Commission grant, the Art Gallery of Alberta has commissioned Canadian artist Damian Moppett to create an installation for long-term display in the AGA Atrium.
