SFU Gallery presents contemporary work within a local, national, and international context. The gallery’s programming addresses the specific intellectual conditions of SFU and the Lower Mainland in relationship to global contexts, as well as the region’s history of conceptual, social, and cultural practices. Located on Burnaby Mountain, SFU Gallery’s audience includes students, faculty, staff, and the general public.
SFU Gallery was established as a public art gallery in 1970. In the preceding years, visual arts programming was coordinated by artist Iain Baxter, who was a Resident in the Centre for Communications and the Arts until the early 1970s. Under Baxter’s guidance, Ian Wallace exhibited early monochromes, N.E. Thing Co. Ltd. undertook multiple projects, and Seth Siegelaub curated a campus wide project entitled Catalogue for an Exhibition that included the work of Josepth Kosuth, Sol Lewitt, Lawrence Weiner, and others. Since that time, SFU Gallery has presented work by artists as diverse as Matilda Aslizadeh, Raymond Boisjoly, Fred Herzog, R.B. Kitaj, Liz Magor, Julie Mehretu, Mina Totino, Jerry Pethick, and Allan Sekula.
