Digital Art

Imaginal Expression (detail) by Reva Stone

As a contemporary art museum focusing on work since 1975, digital media is a big part of what we do at the Surrey Art Gallery.

Launched in 1999, our TechLab shows a wide array of digital art including artificial intelligence, interactive and immersive virtual environments, telerobotic sculptures and flash game installations, to name a few. The TechLab sits next to our main exhibition space and also serves as a studio for digital artists-in-residence. 

Open Sound introduces you to the amazing world of sound art in the Gallery and sometimes throughout the Surrey Arts Centre. Depending on the theme for the year, this exhibition program could have you considering the sound of labour, play, speech, furniture, nature, or cities. Learn more about this growing area of digital art at our annual Sound Thinking event in the fall.

UrbanScreen is the Gallery’s offsite venue that shows digital and interactive art. From dusk until midnight, the west wall of the Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre transforms into Canada’s largest non-commercial outdoor projection venue.

Visit Exhibitions for a complete listing of all our shows, including everything digital.
