2013 marks the 30th anniversary of the Or Gallery. This significant milestone provides the opportunity to reflect on the Or’s venerable history as a space for experimental art practices, and to bring an ambitious new project to light.


The Or Gallery is raising funds to purchase a residency and studio space that will provide a flexible programming venue for talks, readings and open studios. The project reflects an early moment in the gallery’s history: from 1983—1987, the gallery’s Franklin Street location featured an adjoining apartment, allowing a succession of artists to live in the space and curate exhibitions and projects. Building on this history, the multipurpose residency space will host visiting artists, curators and writers for short or long-term stays.


The success of Vancouver’s art community has hinged on tremendous local talent, bolstered by its ability to engage with art communities beyond the city walls. This project will supplement the Or Gallery’s programming and be shared with our peer organizations, providing an important asset to welcome a large number of visitors to work in Vancouver and establish lasting connections in the city.


You can become involved. We are raising money to match $100,000 in funds generously promised by the City of Vancouver, and we need your help! Please consider attending our auction, purchasing artwork, or donating online now.
