The New Gallery

http://www.thenewgallery.org/

The New Gallery (TNG) is an artist-run centre located in Mohkinstsis/Calgary on the ancestral and traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta. This charitable centre for contemporary art was established in 1975 as the Clouds & Water Gallery and Visual Production Society. Currently, TNG operates: the Main Space—an exhibition venue in a storefront of the historic Canton Block in Calgary Chinatown; Billboard 208—a programming site situated on the exterior of TNG’s storefront, coopting a medium typically used for advertising, to create an opportunity for artists to share their practices broadly in the public realm; and the Resource Centre—a combined library/archive/meeting centre located above the Main Space, which is open to the public during gallery hours. These venues support the research, creation, and exhibition of socially relevant and politically informed creative practices from artists at all junctures of their careers, while enabling a public engagement with artist-run culture and contemporary art. TNG’s programming comprises a broad range of art and educational activities, including exhibitions, publications, residencies, offsite projects, and community collaborations that serve to invigorate audiences’ experience of contemporary art and culture.

TNG gratefully acknowledges its home on the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region, including the Blackfoot Confederacy (Kainai, Piikani and Siksika), Métis Nation of Alberta Region III, Stoney Nakoda First Nation (Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley), and Tsuu T’ina First Nation. TNG would also like to acknowledge the many other First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have crossed this land for generations.
