UBC Okanagan Gallery’s goal is to exhibit, research, preserve and promote creative practices with a focus on equity, diversity, decolonial and intersectional practices.

FINA Gallery

The FINA Gallery has hosted a variety of exhibitions over the years, from students, faculty and professional artists. As well as individual, group exhibitions and artist residencies the FINA Gallery has hosted and co-hosted many professional exhibition series and arts events in the past with plans to continue in the future of the gallery.

Highlights of artists in residence at the FINA Gallery include Alex Janvier and James Luna who in 2017 were senior Indigenous artists in residence. Other leading contemporary Indigenous artists and curators such as Rebeca Belmore, Adriam Stimson, Lori Blondeau, Candice Hopkins and Maria Hupfield. Artists have used the FINA gallery as a working studio, where talks were given and visitors from the public were given the opportunity to meet with the artists in their gallery/studio space.
