This summer, the Gardiner Museum is breaking down barriers and moving beyond traditional museum spaces to increase access and meet our communities where you feel safe. Join us now for pop-up window exhibitions, outdoor dining, and public art projects, followed by family clay activities, wellness workshops, performances, and more.
During our temporary closure, we're posting exhibitions and selections from our collection online. Discover Inuit ceramics, Chinese and Japanese porcelain, pottery from the Ancient Americas, and more!
On Thursday June 24 at 1 pm, Chief Curator and Deputy Director Sequoia Miller will be live online with artist Kahlil Robert Irving. Kahlil has received critical acclaim for his gritty ceramics and internet collages that examine contemporary life. Register for free now!
Every object in our permanent collection can be accessed through our eMuseum portal. Learn about individual collecting areas, like Italian Maiolica or Modern and Contemporary Ceramics, or search the full collection by keyword. You'll be amazed by what you discover!
With the Museum closed temporarily, we need your support to continue to offer innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects online, as well as plan for the future. Please consider making a donation to help us build community with clay.

In this live online event hosted by Chief Curator Sequoia Miller, Manitoba-based artist PJ Anderson will discuss three of her artworks in connection to the theme “Contain.” Anderson’s work explores craft, identity and culture, informed by the uneasy relationship between her indirect knowledge of her ancestors and a desire for connection to her African and Indigenous roots.
