Founded in 1971, A Space Gallery is one of the oldest artist-run centres in Canada. A Space has played a significant role in the evolution of contemporary art in Canada.

Located in downtown Toronto, A Space began as an alternative commercial gallery three years before the centre's not-for-profit incorporation in January 1971. Known as an innovative space dedicated to exploring current ideas in art, A Space was a place for alternative music, poetry, dance, video and performance throughout the 70s.

A Space has been a leader in the development of policies such as the payment of standard artist fees (1982), anti-censorship (1984), anti-racism (1985) and access (1993). Since 1982, the gallery has maintained an inclusive programming direction focused on work that is politically engaged, oriented around non-dominant communities, and supportive of innovative curatorial and technical practices.
