Queen Gallery presents the work of contemporary artists from Toronto and around the world. Our exhibitions are driven by a comparative exploration of art and culture in an interdisciplinary setting. Housed in a refurbished brownstone, this distinctive space is a forum where the boundaries of media are greeted, embraced and even challenged. We look to showcase a variety of talent of diverse heritage, aiming to provide the most original, contemporary voices to our collection.
