Established in 1973, the Western Front is one of Canada’s leading artist-run centres for contemporary art and new music. Over its nearly forty-year history, the Western Front has promoted critical investigations into and surrounding interdisciplinary, media-based, anti-object and ephemeral practices, with particular attention to the contexts and economies in which art is produced. The Western Front currently maintains programs in exhibitions, media art and new music, as well as an extensive archive of audio-visual materials. Through this diverse programming, we continue to be a crucial platform for interdisciplinary, experimental art practices in Canada and internationally.
