Description & Services
Description The Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM) is a public, not-for-profit, art gallery located in the Mississauga Civic Centre, right on Celebration Square and across from Square One Shopping Centre. The AGM is generously supported by the City of Mississauga, the Ontario Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, private donors and its members.  
 
The AGM presents a changing calendar of engaging contemporary art exhibitions, featuring regional, national and international artists. As a public gallery with a strong community connection, the AGM is interested in assisting visitors as they learn about art. Projects that engage our community and reflect our awareness of contemporary and relevant cultural topics and issues are of particular interest. The gallery offers a wide range of tours, talks, and workshops for adult learners, as well as innovative youth programmes for schools, universities and community groups.  
 
As a centre for community building, the gallery is envisioned to energize the cultural producers of Mississauga and beyond. The AGM is committed to presenting stimulating exhibitions which are aesthetically strong and intellectually challenging alongside multi-platform ancillary events. 
 
First. New. Next.  
The AGM provides platforms for exhibitions, collections and experimentation in contemporary culture with a recent focus on artists and cultural producers from Indigenous, newcomer and youth communities. Through a broad range of educational programs, artist projects and other forms of critical dialogue, the AGM seeks to transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries, foster community, and provide spaces where alternative modes of thought are supported and activated in tangible ways. 
 
The AGM is proud to offer free admission to all exhibitions and programming and to provide positive visual art experiences for all visitors. The Gallery is a barrier-free space with an all-gender washroom.
