Hosting a TREX exhibition

The Art Gallery of Alberta is pleased to present this selection of travelling exhibitions for the 2017-2018 season. Currently the Art Gallery of Alberta serves over 60 venues in over 40 communities. Exhibitions on tour from the Art Gallery of Alberta will easily adapt to the space requirements of smaller venues: schools, libraries, museums, health care centres and other community facilities. The exhibitions are organized in such a manner as to make unpacking, packing, hanging and shipping as easy as possible. An educational Interpretive Guide is developed for each show. These materials enable teachers to use the exhibition within the school curriculum. The Interpretive Guides can be kept by each venue for further reference and are also available on the AGA website. Along with the exhibition, each venue receives an evaluation package which must be completed at the close of the exhibition and returned to the Art Gallery of Alberta.

17 exhibitions were available for booking during 2016/2017.

Venue Cost: $75 (plus GST) per exhibition booking. Freight is arranged for and paid by the Art Gallery of Alberta. During the period of the booking the venue contact will receive information regarding shipping arrangements. Booking invoices for each exhibition are issued close to the beginning of each period.

The Alberta Foundation for the Arts Collection is the primary source of works featured in the travelling exhibitions. Other sources for exhibitions include community partners, archives, private collections and loans from artists. Each year the AGA TREX Program welcomes new venues to enrich their community art through the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program. Please look through this year’s selection of exhibitions to plan an exciting visual experience for your facility.
