History

The gallery was officially opened on September 29, 2012.

The new building, designed by Toronto architect Donald Schmitt (architect) Donald Schmitt of Diamond and Schmitt Architects[1] contains:

  • Three public gallery spaces
  • Glassed in entrance Colonnade that hosts the Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall
  • A fully staffed professional research centre with museum-quality environmental controls
  • A climate controlled vault to house the collections, including The Black Star Collection

The centre was in part created to display some of the 292,000 photos from Black Star which it had received as an anonymous donation.[2]
