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, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, private citizens 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.
WHO WE ARE
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 admit people free of charge, serve communities, and provide positive visual art experiences for all visitors.

The Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM) would like to acknowledge and give thanks to the land on which we work. The AGM is a respectful guest upon the Traditional Treaty Territory of the Mississauga’s of the Credit First Nation and traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe, Wendat and Haudenosaunee nations. We are thankful to the many First Nations, Inuit, Métis and global Indigenous peoples who call this region home.
The AGM is committed to recognizing and incorporating diverse Indigenous perspectives within exhibitions and programming, and highlighting the numerous Indigenous artists who have contributed to this gallery. The AGM is dedicated to providing a platform for contemporary Indigenous art and curatorial practices, and hosts events and programs that reflect various cultural topics and identities.
