Our Mission
YYZ supports critical and experimental artistic practices through exhibitions,  publishing, educational programs and the commissioning of new works. By prioritizing the agency of artists, YYZ provides a unique platform for building communities and advancement of culture. YYZ initiates critical and engaging projects through the YYZLAB, YYreZidency, YYretroZpective, and YYZUNLIMITED programs alongside a number of other special educational events. YYZBOOKS publishes a wide range of books about Canadian criticism, culture, and art history, contributing to a broad discourse on visual culture. 
Our History
In 1979, a group of young artists got together with the intent of exhibiting work which was not being shown by commercial galleries and institutions. YYZ Artists’ Outlet distinguished itself through strong, innovative programming that sought to combine theory and practice and to encourage dialogue between a variety of communities and audiences. YYZ continues to nurture and support contemporary art practices in Toronto and to make a recognized contribution to the Canadian cultural scene.
