Who We Are
Established in 1970, the Hatch Art Gallery is UBC’s only student-run exhibition space. Situated on the unceded, ancestral and traditional lands of the xwmə0–kwəy’əm (Musqueam), the Hatch aims to stimulate the exchange of art and ideas between artists, students and the public. Committed to promoting the practices of UBC students and alumni, the Hatch seeks to present innovative projects on critical subjects relevant to larger discourses in contemporary art, visual culture and theory.
In addition to biweekly exhibitions of student and local art, the Hatch also maintains and displays the AMS Art Collection, an impressive assortment of Canadian art that provides a cross section of artistic growth and development in Canada since 1945. The Hatch’s exhibition schedule is also supplemented by a variety of special events and projects throughout the year, including collaborations, workshops, performances, and the annual Visual Art Students’ Association exhibition.
The Hatch Art Gallery is supported by the UBC Alma Mater Society.
