Founded in 1971, A Space Gallery is one of the oldest artist-run centres in Canada. A Space has played a significant role in the evolution of contemporary art in Canada.

Located in downtown Toronto, A Space began as an alternative commercial gallery three years before the centre’s not-for-profit incorporation in January 1971. Known as an innovative space dedicated to exploring current ideas in art, A Space was a place for alternative music, poetry, dance, video and performance throughout the 70s.

A Space has been a leader in the development of policies such as the payment of standard artist fees (1982), anti-censorship (1984), anti-racism (1985) and access (1993). Since 1982, the gallery has maintained inclusive programming focused on work that is politically engaged, oriented around non-dominant communities, and supportive of innovative curatorial and technical practices.


A Space exhibits multi-disciplinary contemporary art that engages social critique. We are interested in multidisciplinary projects that create a forum for collaboration and transformation. A Space is committed to fostering discourse around politically engaged work, issue-based projects, and technically innovative art practices. We encourage artists and curators from every stage of their career, including emerging practitioners, and have a strong interest in reimaginging the possibilities for culturally diverse and community-based projects.
