Onsite Gallery Logo

Onsite Gallery is the flagship professional gallery of OCAD University and an experimental curatorial platform for art, design and digital media.

A New Flagship Gallery for OCAD University

A completely new Onsite Gallery opened on September 16, 2017, at the centre of OCAD University's Creative City Campus. The expanded Onsite Gallery is a stunning 8,000 square-foot Category A designed exhibition space located at 199 Richmond St. W. Under the stewardship of Francisco Alvarez, our dynamic new Dorene and Peter Milligan Executive Director, we aim for it to be one of the finest university and college galleries in North America.

The new Onsite Gallery endeavours to:

  • Host intriguing exhibitions of art, design and digital media from bold Canadian and international creators
  • Introduce a new International Curators' Residency program for OCAD University
  • Create unique opportunities for public art within and outside the Gallery
  • Display the University's significant permanent collection of historical art and design
  • Offer meaningful public engagement programs for the public and OCAD U community
