about the gallery
Celebrating 35 years
One of Canada’s pre-eminent spaces for visual art, Corkin Gallery is recognized worldwide for its contribution to contemporary art discourse. By facilitating discussion among artists, writers, curators, museums and private collections, Corkin Gallery curates projects and exhibitions that contextualize the work of international artists with an historical trajectory.
Corkin Gallery represents a roster of artists whose works explore issues concerning the environment, identity, consumerism and narrative in a variety of mediums including photography, concrete abstract painting, digital media and sculpture.
Migrating from its John Street loft space (founded in 1978 as Jane Corkin Gallery) to a converted tank house in the Distillery District, the Corkin Gallery is a ten thousand foot facility which allows several exhibitions to interact with one another.
Corkin Gallery assumes an ambitious exhibition schedule and actively attends art fairs at The Armory in New York, Art Basel, Art Hong Kong, and Art Toronto.
