Tartar Gallery

Gallery Info

Tatar Gallery was founded in 1996 for the purpose of promoting strong and innovative contemporary art worldwide. Our mandate includes a commitment to cultivating an encounter between collectors and artists demonstrating new trends in contemporary art, particularly works that boldly rearticulate established forms and works representing the direction into new media.

To better facilitate this encounter, Tatar Gallery maintains its exhibition programming in a unique space located at 600 King Street West, 4th Floor, Toronto. This exhibition venue provides a space of experimentation for Tatar Gallery and the artists it represents. More than just a promotion of the latest developments in contemporary art, our exhibition programming is designed to demonstrate new strategies in the presentation of art and to explore the ensuing spatial relationships.

We invite you to visit our current exhibition entitled Cara Barer: The Book Project. To book an appointment, please call 416-360-3822.

Submission Guidelines

The Tatar Gallery accepts unsolicited artists submissions and proposals.  



The Tatar Gallery’s programming mandate is designed to reflect contemporary curatorial practices. Our exhibitions are located on the 3rd floor of The Spoke Club, 600 King Street West, across the street from the Tatar Gallery offices, 527 King Street West, Suite 300.

Visiting an exhibition: While the Spoke Club is a members-only facility, an open invitation is extended to all who wish to attend the public opening reception of any exhibition. When arriving at an opening, please introduce yourself to the concierge on the 4th floor who will direct you to the exhibition space.

To visit an exhibition on an alternative date, call Tatar Gallery at 416-360-3822 to book an appointment.
