Humber Galleries are part of the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning. Humber’s polytechnic model is the “third way” between the university and the trade college; it blends the creation of new knowledge and the solving of real world problems. Because we are located within a polytechnic environment, Humber Galleries is a space where contemporary art and polytechnic learning come together and influence each other. Humber’s core values of creativity, innovation, problem-solving, adaptability, and collaboration guide our mandate. Our two physical spaces are accessible sites of social, political, educational, philosophical, and quantitative inquiry: North Space (North Campus) and L Space (Lakeshore Campus). We are an active collaborator in the social and educational fabric of Humber College, our neighbourhood, and the contemporary art discipline.
