The Red Head Gallery was established in 1990 and is Toronto’s most enduring collectively-run art gallery. It has stood the test of time as an exhibition space and a cooperative where critically engaged, productive artist/individuals present their artwork in a way that they themselves manage. Over the past two decades more than 100 artists have been a part of Red Head where they have produced over 200 exhibitions.
Red Head artists are many things -- they make images and objects, manipulate spaces, orchestrate events and much more. Because of the artists that have made The Red Head Gallery a continually evolving success, this gallery is a place where significant careers are sustained. The gallery's shows have been reviewed in The Globe and Mail, The National Post, ArtSync TV and in Canadian Art. Red Head artists, both past and present, are noticed and notable.
The Red Head Gallery is more than what you see at any moment in time. Red Head is a concept as much as a space. It is a reflection of its sixteen artist-members. These artists inspire, challenge and support one another through exhibitions and exchanges that take their work out into the wider community – here and globally. The work of current and past Red Head artists can be seen at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the National Gallery of Canada and in major institutions and collections across the country and around the world In 2009, Red Head artists exhibited their work at the Kunsthaus Santa Fe in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Members are currently planning other exchanges with galleries abroad.
