Esker Foundation is a contemporary art gallery located in Mohkinstsis/Calgary. As a leader in the Calgary arts community, Esker presents relevant, accessible and engaging contemporary art exhibitions, forward-thinking educational programs, and innovative publications. Esker reflects on current developments in local, regional, and international art and ideas; creates opportunities for public dialogue, and supports the production of groundbreaking new work and research.

The gallery programs three exhibition changes per year for the fall, winter, and spring/summer seasons. In addition to the main exhibition space on the fourth floor of the Atlantic Avenue Arts Block, Esker Foundation hosts the Project Space at street level.
