Featuring a year-round program of exhibitions, publications, public programs and educational initiatives, the Koffler Gallery fosters new production while equally aiming to expand the visibility of existing work by Canadian and international artists. The program positions the contemporary Jewish experience in a context of comparative discussions of identity, memory and place.
Committed to nurturing and promoting Canadian artists, the Koffler Gallery provides a stimulating and supportive environment for the creation of new work, the promotion of current artistic practices, and the exchange of ideas across disciplines. Programs aim for the highest artistic standards while being accessible and engaging for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. As a Jewish organization, the Koffler Gallery promotes ideals of social justice, equality and inclusiveness, affirming the power of art to provide common ground and activate social change.


The Koffler Gallery exhibition program is developed by the Curatorial Staff in dialogue with the Koffler Gallery Advisory Committee rather than through unsolicited proposals or submissions. However, you are welcome to send a CV, artist statement or curatorial proposal, and digital images/web links if you would like to keep us informed of your work. Submissions will be reviewed on an on-going basis, however only proposals of interest will receive a reply. Hardcopy materials will not be returned.
