Surrey's UrbanScreen

Located on the west wall of Chuck Bailey Recreation Centre at 13458 107A Avenue, UrbanScreen is an advertising-free outdoor public art venue for digital media art projections. UrbanScreen is Canada’s largest, permanent, non-commercial screen and presents digital artwork by regionally and internationally significant artists.

The venue can be viewed from the SkyTrain, between Gateway and Surrey Central stations. Exhibitions begin 30 minutes after sunset and end at midnight. Note: the venue does not operate June through August.

Exhibiting at UrbanScreen

UrbanScreen is used as an offsite venue by the Surrey Art Gallery, with the Gallery commissioning new works for exhibition at this site. Surrey Art Gallery periodically invites proposals for site-specific and responsive artworks for exhibition at this venue.

We are not currently accepting proposals for UrbanScreen. To receive notification of our next open call, and to learn about other Surrey Art Gallery exhibitions and related programs, sign up for our e-newsletter.
