The Green Cube Gallery

Mission

To support artists who make work about and of the natural world as a way to explore new ways of relating to the land.

 

Vision

  • To bring awareness of, and support to, the artists whose work is about and of the land.

  • To always put artists first in every aspect of our work.

  • To minimize our collective footprint in the way we operate.

  • To support the visionary, the creative, the imaginative and the innovative.

  • To celebrate multiple voices, experiences and perspectives.

  • To play in ways that make new and unexpected things happen!

The Green Cube Gallery is a Canadian on-line gallery established to support artists whose practice is about and of the environment, to the art market.

 

Given the frequency and severity of weather events happening globally, suggesting that we have truly entered a new stage of Climate Change, the Green Cube Gallery seeks to present artists who can re-awaken our intuitive knowledge of interconnection with the natural world that sustains us. There is currently no other gallery in North America exclusively dedicated to this area of art making.

 

Artists have a long history of showing us new ways of seeing, being, and doing. Whether working in traditional media or incorporating new technologies in response to scientific research in the life sciences, such as bio art or interactivity, our artists re-frame and re-contextualize our perceptions of the natural world, and how we are interconnected with it. Their works range from exploring non-hierarchical relationships with nature, leading us to responsible and equitable choices that can to turn the situation around, and quietly witnessing what is endangered or has been lost (both human and environmental).

 

Discover a diverse community of artists, each celebrated within their respective fields, including fine art, fine craft, installation, new media, traditional media, ephemeral works, environmental interventions, bio-art, ethical land art, queer ecologies and more-than-human perspectives.

 

In addition to the Gallery’s online presence, we will work with public galleries and artist collectives and other partners to create pop-up exhibitions. For some of these exhibitions, we will be seeking support to pay exhibition fees and/or commission artists to create new works and produce exhibition catalogues with texts by curators, art historians, other artists, and environmental thought leaders. No matter the project, the artists we work with, always come first.

 

As well, we have established an annual Writer-in-Residence program in which writers and poets will create new works about environmental themes and Climate Change. Our 2024 Resident Writer is Michael Boughn.

 

We are starting small but have big ideas that will become manifest as the gallery evolves.  Please support us by purchasing work, donating money, and/or connecting us to visionaries who can help us make more of this possible.

 

The brilliant writer, historian, and activist Rebecca Solnit, who coined the hashtag #NotTooLate, says: “Imagination is a superpower. We have to believe the world can be different, and then we have to act on it.” Ultimately, we are here because it’s #NotTooLate for the planet and not too soon for our artists.
