In light of mounting health and safety concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the Koffler Gallery and to postpone our upcoming public events.
The final two weeks of our current exhibition, Karen Tam: the chrysanthemum has opened twelve times, and all related public tours, have therefore been cancelled.
We have also postponed our upcoming Books & Ideas event, “Shani Mootoo in Conversation with Catherine Bush” (April 2). Current ticket holders will be contacted via Eventbrite, and refunds will be offered for paid tickets. This event will be rescheduled for later in 2020.
We hope to reopen the Koffler Gallery on April 23 for our next exhibition, Carol Sawyer: The Natalie Brettschneider Archive and to proceed with our next Books & Ideas program, “Madhur Anand in Conversation with Ali Kazimi” on May 14. However, we will be closely monitoring public health advisories to see if this is possible, and keep you informed via our e-newsletter, website and social media platforms.
At the Koffler, we pride ourselves in presenting transformative arts experiences that address vital issues, promote intercultural understanding and build community – a mission that seems especially important in these difficult times. During the closure, we invite you to continue engaging with our programs by:
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Koffler soon and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work together to safeguard the health and safety of our communities.
