The Illingworth Kerr Gallery

The Illingworth Kerr Gallery (IKG), as part of Alberta University of the Arts (AUArts), provides a platform for curated exhibitions and other forms of cultural research production, with a focus on contemporary visual culture. A vital part of AUArts’ Office of Research and Academic Affairs, it supports graduate and undergraduate learning, provides a rich mix of public programming, and participates in global dialogue by hosting local, regional and international artists working in a variety of disciplines.

The Illingworth Kerr Gallery acknowledges that both the gallery and AUArts are situated on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot and the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikuni, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Stoney Nakoda First Nations, including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations. The City of Calgary is also home to Metis Nation of Alberta, Region III.

Alberta University of the Arts (AUArts)

AUArts is a community of thinkers, shapers, makers and risk takers.

We are students, faculty, staff and alumni rich in diversity of culture and thought, challenged to fearlessly explore what moves us, drives us, and implores us to see the world differently.

Formerly Alberta College of Art and Design, we are dedicated to innovative and emerging art, craft and design programs. For nearly 100 years, AUArts has educated in ways that test the boundaries of common thought and we celebrate 11 Governor General’s Award winners amongst our faculty and alumni.

AUArts has five Schools of learning: Visual Art, Craft and Emerging Media, Communication Design, and Critical and Creative Studies offering undergraduate BFA and BDes degrees, and a graduate MFA, plus the School of Continuing Education and Professional Development.

Our studio-based education model introduces learners to a community of passionate minds, provocative thinkers, ambitious doers and brave creators.
