A university-based, public art gallery since 1942, McIntosh Gallery collaborates with artists, curators and academics to develop innovative strategies to interpret and disseminate visual culture. Exhibitions, educational programs and special events provide a platform for engagement with visual art and artists. McIntosh Gallery acknowledges the support of the Government of Canada through its Museums Assistance Program (MAP), the Canada Council for the Arts through its Engage and Sustain Program, the Ontario Arts Council, the London Arts Council, Western University, Foundation Western, and our donors.

Our Mission

McIntosh Gallery is a centre for the presentation and dissemination of advanced practices and research in the fields of art history and contemporary visual art. McIntosh serves the students, faculty and staff of Western University and the broader community of the City of London as a teaching and research resource. Ongoing programs and services actively promote innovative projects in the production, exhibition, interpretation and collection of visual culture.

Our Vision

To be nationally recognized as a leader among university-based public art galleries for creative interpretation and scholarly research in art and visual culture.
