ABOUT WALTER PHILLIPS GALLERY
The Banff Centre’s Walter Phillips Gallery produces, presents, collects and analyzes contemporary art and curatorial practice. For contemporary artists, particularly those engaged in alternative forms of practice, Walter Phillips Gallery remains an essential and principle site where art is presented to an audience for critical reception.

Established in 1976, Walter Phillips Gallery bears the name of a distinguished printmaker and painter who, from the 1930s to the 1950s, played a seminal role in the development of the Banff School of Fine Arts visual arts program. It quickly evolved into a small but dynamic gallery and became known for a contemporary art program that championed curatorial innovation with a commitment to emerging forms of art including video and performance.
Located at The Banff Centre in Banff National Park, Banff, Alberta. Ground floor of Glyde Hall. Wheelchair accessible.
