SFU Galleries at Simon Fraser University

Simon Fraser University's art galleries are dynamic centres for the presentation and interrogation of art practices and ideas. There are three distinct galleries: SFU Gallery on the Burnaby campus (established 1970), Audain Gallery at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts in Vancouver (established 2010), and Teck Gallery at Harbour Centre in Vancouver (established 1989). SFU Galleries stewards the Simon Fraser University Art Collection that includes, in its holdings of over 5,500 works, significant regional and national art works spanning the last century. 

Simon Fraser University is known for its commitment to academic freedom, interdisciplinary research, and innovative pedagogy, and it has created opportunities for important local and international artists to exhibit, teach, study, and produce work. Within this context, SFU Galleries encourage conceptual and experimental programs that explore ways in which contemporary art is socially and politically engaged. Undertaken by SFU Galleries' curatorial staff, programming includes exhibitions, publications, symposia, conversations, screenings, performances, and other events. Collaborating with SFU's School for the Contemporary Arts, Audain Gallery hosts exhibitions with Audain Visual Artists in Residence Program as well as BFA and MFA student exhibitions. SFU Galleries engage the general public and the art community as well as the SFU community. All galleries are free of charge.
