Current Exhibitions


Celebrating queer experiences that emerge from transactional creative exchanges, the artists in TRANSACTIONS define, refine, redefine, exult themselves today for the (a)genders of tomorrow, linking communities and challenging ideas of authenticity, allyship, belonging and being.

We Are Continually Exposed to the Flashbulb of Death: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg (1953-1996)

This major survey presents spontaneous, uninhibited snapshots of Allen Ginsberg’s circle of friends, himself, and ordinary events that celebrate what he called “the sacredness of the moment.”

Patricia Reed: The One and the Many

The Ottawa-born, Berlin-based artist reconsiders such familiar national symbols as flags, currencies, and anthems in works that reflect our complex global conditions.


Featuring photographs and video works from CUAG’s collection, genderhow? exposes and critiques traditional notions of how masculinities and femininities are performed. The exhibition aims to question, challenge, and dismantle how we understand, experience, and embrace intersectional gender identities and expressions.
