On behalf of the CLGA, Carole Pope and Lorraine Segato invite you to press rewind on your boombox and party to the sounds and styles of the 1980's at our third annual Flashback Gala on November 14, 2015. Tickets on sale now!


Opening June 20, Queering Space invites celebrated Canadian queer artists to create contemporary multidisciplinary responses to the CLGA’s historical collection, reigniting its relevance while exploring the evolution of queer sites across space and time.
