COVID-19 Update: McIntosh Gallery closure

Based on advice from local health officials and in keeping with decisions being made across the City of London, effective March 16, 2020, McIntosh Gallery will be closed until further notice. All gallery events, workshops, and programs have been postponed indefinitely.

It is with particular regret that we cut short Johannes Zits' artist residency Listening to Trees. We thank Johannes, Mkomosé (Dr. Andrew Judge), and all the contributors for agreeing to reschedule events in order to complete the project in 2021. During the interim, Johannes will do project research and performance development from his Toronto studio. We will share online documentation of the project as it unfolds on social media.

McIntosh will be operating virtually with no staff physically in the office until further notice. Should you need to reach us while the gallery is closed, please contact
