Contemporary Art Galleries Association — AGAC
The Contemporary Art Galleries Association (AGAC) is a not-for-profit organization whose primary mandate is to further develop the recognition and prosperity of the contemporary art market in Canada. Founded in 1985, today the AGAC regroups galleries in Montréal, Québec city, Eastman, Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. The association actively contributes to the dissemination and promotion of Canadian artists via exhibitions and other major events organized in Québec, Canada and internationally. Beyond defending the moral and economical interests of its members through a rigorous code of ethics, the association also fosters the public’s interest in visual arts and encourages the emergence of new contemporary art collectors.
