Concordia is home to galleries and other publicly accessible spaces that showcase research and innovation, provoke critical reflection, and engage people in the arts.
4TH SPACE is a venue where the university community together with the public can engage with the innovative and creative research questions, projects, and activities that Concordians are developing. The spirit and design of the space enables a range of inventive programming grounded in inclusivity. It is a street-level lens into the world of knowledge—a distinctive space to connect and engage with Concordia.
Concordia University is home to the international Art Hives HQ and Network. An Art Hive is a community art studio that welcomes everyone as an artist and scientist. These unprogrammed spaces invite people of differing backgrounds, ages and abilities to explore their creativity, meet their neighbours, share their skills, break isolation and enhance their wellbeing.
The FOFA Gallery is the primary venue dedicated to showcasing the current artistic and research practices of the Faculty of Fine Arts. The gallery dedicates itself to innovation and learning opportunities, presenting work from within the Concordia community and beyond, when outside work relates to the aims of the Faculty.

Its curatorial approach emphasizes critical thinking and welcomes collaborators from various disciplines. It highlights work that responds to the communities, issues, and changes that shape our society.
