Gallery 1313 advocates accessibility to contemporary arts and culture for artists, the community and wider audiences throughout Toronto and further afield by providing numerous diverse exhibition and event opportunities, both within its four exhibition spaces and off-site. Gallery 1313 also provides much-needed exhibition space for artists, critics, scholars, students and community organizations, and is a vital supporter of arts and culture in Parkdale. In addition to providing space for local residents to express creativity, the gallery offers a welcoming centre for community engagement, exploration and enjoyment of contemporary art and cultural events. Artist-organized solo and group exhibitions are emphasized, however exhibition and event proposals are also welcome from curators, collectives, designers, critics, scholars and students, as well as from community, literary, musical and cultural groups. Programming emphasizes the work of local emerging artists, but occasionally features national and international exhibitions. The gallery welcomes contemporary visual art in all media, including drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, installation, performance, participatory art forms, video and new media.
