Hello Montreal! Salut!

Ctrllab is an art gallery and event space dedicated to disseminating the work of emerging and established artists, while providing the Montreal arts community with a unique venue for new and innovative events. Our aim is to stimulate new dialogue and challenge audiences with diverse interdisciplinary work in a non-traditional gallery setting.

Having established itself as a vibrant venue for video, photography, sculpture, painting, dance, and theatre, we are open to young artists and curators seeking to present professional solo or group shows. Ctrllab is available as a rehearsal and performance space and can readily accommodate groups for fundraisers, album launches and private events.

Ctrllab est une galerie d’art et un espace évènementiel dédié à la promotion d'œuvres d’artistes émergents ou établis, apportant à la communauté artistique montréalaise un lieu unique de rendez-vous pour des évènements nouveaux et innovants. Notre but est de stimuler un nouveau dialogue et de provoquer le public avec des œuvres provenant de diverses disciplines, dans un cadre artistique non traditionnel.

S'étant établi comme un lieu de rendez-vous vibrant pour la vidéo, la photographie, la sculpture, la peinture, la danse et le théâtre, Ctrllab est aussi capable d’accueillir des évènements de levées de fonds, de lancement d’album ou de livre, ainsi que des soirées privées. Notre espace est ouvert aux jeunes artistes et conservateurs cherchant à présenter des solos professionnels ou des spectacles de groupes, et il est également disponible comme salle de répétition ou scène de spectacle pour les danseurs, musiciens, acteurs et chorégraphes désirant partager leur travail.
