The UBC Okanagan Gallery explores contemporary art and intersections with other practices as a form of research that produces knowledge.

As a university gallery, managed and located within the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies, the UBC Okanagan Gallery is committed to a research mandate realized through: research-creation,  exhibitions, performance, publications, permanent collection and acquisitions, curatorial studies and community-engaged programs, in the field of creative and critical studies.

UBC Okanagan Gallery’s goal is to exhibit, research, preserve and promote creative practices with a focus on equity, diversity, decolonial and intersectional practices. We seek to foster professional arts education and research which can be shared with both national and international audiences, and educational and artistic networks. We seek to engage the public on both local and global social issues through creative and research-based practices.
