The University of Manitoba’s School of Art Gallery (formerly ▶ Gallery One One One) was established in 1965 to serve the School of Art and the public. The School of Art Gallery exhibits and collects contemporary and historical art, maintaining, researching and developing collections in the School of Art’s Permanent Collection and the FitzGerald Study Centre collection.

In February 2012, the University of Manitoba’s School of Art Gallery relocated to main floor of the new Art Research Technology Laboratory (ARTlab). The School of Art Gallery is built to Category ‘A’ specifications, dramatically enhancing the School’s facilities. The new purpose built gallery has the capacity for larger, more complex exhibitions.

The expanded exhibition program and substantial collection of art works of the gallery is intended to mirror the role of laboratories and libraries in the larger university context. This fully equipped, state-of-the-art contemporary art space, wired to present all forms of contemporary and historical art, including work that makes use of newer technologies, is central to the mandate of the School of Art.

The physical and philosophical gateway placement of School of Art Gallery within the ARTlab is key to facilitating critical thought, engendering creativity, promoting knowledge production and developing research skills amongst undergraduate and graduate students.

The School of Art Gallery is generously supported by the University of Manitoba, School of Art’s faculty and staff, national and provincial funding agencies, donors, and volunteers.
