\History

Founded in Lethbridge, AB in 2004, Trap\door artist-run centre is committed to providing local contemporary artists with opportunities to exhibit, develop, and disseminate their work, stimulating interest in art among the wider community. Our inaugural exhibition took place at the Chinese Freemasons’ building, setting a precedent for the possibilities of finding different venues for encounters with contemporary art. We have continued this tradition of site-seeking with annual exhibitions, residencies at the Gushul studio, art-making workshops, panel discussions, and poster campaigns. The University of Lethbridge Art Gallery, the Trianon, the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, the City of Lethbridge, and Casa are among the organizations that have collaborated with us in hosting and facilitating such projects.
