AHVA Gallery

The AHVA Gallery provides a site for student and faculty to showcase their artistic and curatorial collaborations; from within the department, the university as a whole, and artists and art students outside the university community.

This 185 square metre, purpose-built, contemporary exhibition space serves as a lab space for our visual art, art history, and curatorial studies programs.

The gallery allows for interactions on issues relating to art, culture, and creative research. Each academic year, the gallery showcases students, faculty, and fellow artists through the BFA, MFA, faculty exhibitions and selected curatorial projects.


The AHVA Gallery is located in room 1001 in the Audain Art Centre at 6398 University Boulevard, University of British Columbia, Vancouver.

During exhibitions, the AHVA Gallery is open from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday, and is closed on holidays.
