Mandate

The New Gallery (TNG) is an artist-run centre located in Calgary, Alberta. This charitable centre for contemporary art was established in 1975 as the Clouds & Water Gallery and Visual Production Society. Today, the Society continues its vision through the operation of two venues – the Main Space, a storefront in Calgary’s Chinatown neighbourhood, and the +15 Window, a shallow vitrine located at the Arts Commons building on a high-traffic pedestrian walkway. These spaces support the research, creation, and exhibition of social and political creative practices from artists at all junctures of their careers, while enabling a public engagement with contemporary art. Our programming comprises a broad range of art and educational activities, including exhibitions, residencies, lectures, and community collaborations that serve to invigorate our audience’s experience of contemporary art and culture.

Vision

To provide opportunities and venues for artists that foster social and political creative practices, while engaging and educating our audiences through contemporary art.
