The Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery is a university art gallery recognized across Canada for the rigorous nature of its programming. It examines current artistic and curatorial practices as well as the context in which they evolve. Its exhibitions, projections, performances, lectures and publications are devised as a form of inquiry in order to foster critical thinking. Its programming also has a historical reach that attempts to frame the present in relation to the recent past of contemporary art.
