About the East Gallery

The East Gallery’s mission is to be a gateway to the vibrant contemporary art scenes of East and Southeast Asia. We want to introduce Canadians to a wide range of exciting modern Asian artists, both emerging and established. All the artists we represent produce unique and compelling work, and many have had high-profile exhibitions in galleries and museums around the world.

Through a range of special events such as book readings, film nights and lectures we provide visitors with a social, historical and cultural context to the art and artists we present. For a list of special events & media coverage during our previous exhibitions, please click here.

Furthermore, art lovers can keep up-to-date with the latest trends and happenings in the contemporary Asian art world through the East Gallery’s regular postings on facebook and twitter as well as on our website’s blog. To receive invitations to our exhibitions please sign up to our e-mail list.

After organizing exhibitions in different locations around Toronto for one year, we moved into a permanent retail space at 334 Dundas Street West, Toronto (across from the Art Gallery of Ontario) from July 2012 to October 2013. We have since adopted a new operating model that allows us to organize even more compelling shows and events in various places around Toronto and other cities in Canada.

In between exhibitions the art can be viewed by appointment in downtown Toronto.

We can arrange shipping for customers living outside of Canada. Shipping for unframed paintings on canvas is free. Our customers include art buyers from the U.S. and Europe.
