The Thames Art Gallery’s primary curatorial activity is to research, organize and present exhibitions and art related programs of contemporary Canadian art that are relevant, innovative, and scholarly. Curatorial activities support an atmosphere that encourages an appreciation and understanding of the visual arts. It also offers opportunities to present discussion on contemporary culture. A curatorial priority is the development of electronic media/installation/interactive projects that challenge the Gallery’s audience and encourage reflection on the issues of modern culture.
The Gallery presents up to 18 exhibitions per year in its 3 spaces. The largest venue is the Ground Floor Gallery which features 2 expansive wall surfaces, the largest measuring 21 meters in length by 6.5 meters in height. The Mezzanine Gallery is a more intimate space that also provides a dramatic view of the Ground Floor Gallery. The Community & Project Room is set aside for community initiatives and small video projects. Applications are accepted for all three venues and each space rotates every 6-8 weeks.
