Satellite Gallery was shared between the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery (University of British Columbia), the Museum of Anthropology (University of British Columbia), the Charles H. Scott Gallery (Emily Carr University of Art and Design), and Presentation House Gallery. It included over 3500 square feet of exhibition and programming space. For five years and across 29 exhibitions, the Satellite Gallery represented a diverse array of artistic and curatorial methodologies that spoke to the versatility of the shared space and responded to the gallery’s site on a local, provincial, regional, and international level. With programs such as LAB, Guerilla Knitters, GO8, and The Graey, Satellite Gallery also served as an active hub for community engagement dedicated to fostering youth involvement with the local arts scene. By providing a platform for spontaneous art intervention and community-based workshops, the gallery demonstrated the value of providing meaningful learning opportunities through experimental tactics and public programming that challenged traditional gallery conventions.
