Morris and Helen Belkin Gallery

Gallery in Kitsilano & University of British Columbia

This great little gallery specializes in contemporary and often quite challenging pieces, with chin-stroking new exhibitions opening in its high-ceilinged, white-walled spaces throughout the year. Check ahead for workshops and presentations, often covering key or emerging themes in avant-garde art.

Although the gallery only opened in 1995, it replaced the UBC Fine Arts Gallery, which opened in 1948 and for many years was the only place where Vancouverites could view contemporary art.
