Rennie Collection, one of the largest collections of contemporary art in Canada, has evolved over a number of years to focus on works related to identity, social injustice, appropriation, painting and photography. The Collection is dedicated not only to the acquisition of established international artists, but also the work of emerging artists. Currently there are approximately 40 artists collected in depth with about 200 artists in total, including John Baldessari, Amy Bessone, Glenn Brown, David Claerbout, Martin Creed, Gilbert & George, Andrew Grassie, Rodney Graham, Mona Hatoum, Mary Heilmann, Thomas Houseago, Richard Jackson, Brian Jungen, Mike Kelley, Louise Lawler, Kerry James Marshall, Damian Moppett, Simon Starling, Ian Wallace, and Rebecca Warren. The collection, while based in Vancouver is usually spread across the globe, on loan to institutions like Guggenheim New York, MET, Pompidou, Smithsonian and Tate, amongst many others.

Public viewing of current exhibitions is available through guided tours on select days each week. Tours are approximately 50 minutes in duration. Time is provided after the tour for additional review at your leisure. There is no charge for admission.

In addition to the collection and the tours, the Rennie collection has also produced a series of publications from their exhibitions. These are beautiful books that document each exhibition and often contain fascinating critical essays on the works. Publications of featured artists include: Martin Creed, Andrew Grassie, Richard Jackson, Mona Hatoum, Damian Moppett, and Amy Bessone & Thomas Houseago. Writers for each publication include: Andrew Berardini, Briony Fer, Darian Leader, Catherine Grenier, Phillip Kaiser & Rachel Rosenfield Lafo and Cliff Lauson.
