Stephen Bulger Gallery to Open New Space at 1356 Dundas Street West, Toronto
June 12, 2017
After nearly 15 years in their current location, Stephen Bulger Gallery have finally found a new gallery space in their neighbourhood that is large enough to accommodate their ambitions to be one of the world’s leading commercial galleries for great photographs of all types.
On September 9, 2017, they open the doors of 1356 Dundas Street West to welcome visitors in a purposefully designed space of over 11,000 square feet.
Designed by architect Michael Boxer, the new space will dramatically increase exhibition space, include several private viewing areas, and better enable them to house the more than 40,000 photographs that currently comprise the gallery’s growing inventory.
They will operate out of their current location until June 17th, then will move into the new location, taking the summer months to unpack and prepare for their first exhibition, which will highlight Larry Towell’s photographs of an even larger construction project: the renovation of Union Station.
Since opening in 1995, Stephen Bulger Gallery has become synonymous with photography in Canada. Its extensive exhibition program of more than 180 solo and group exhibitions has introduced Torontonians to important local and international photography, has exhibited Canadian photography in special exhibitions at prestigious institutions around the world, and has exhibited in more than 60 art fairs.
Stephen Bulger (Born 1964, Toronto) has played vital roles in the founding of the CONTACT Photography Festival and the Ryerson Image Centre, and is a past President of the Association of International Photography Art Dealers, which is comprised of over 125 specialists in photography from around the world. The gallery has sold work to important private and public collections in every continent, and is Canada’s go to destination for photographic art and artefacts.
