In addition to its permanent collection, the gallery organizes several international exhibits each year. These include traveling arts exhibitions, artist's lectures, dance performances, musical performances, and scholar's talks.

The Vancouver Art Gallery is located on a traditional Musqueam territory. This means that the gallery is a respectful institution that takes care of its land. It is also located on ancestral Squamish territory, which means that the gallery is respectful of the Tsleil-Waututh people.
One of the most powerful memorials at the Vancouver Art Gallery is the one for the children who died at former residential schools. The gallery has placed children's shoes and toys at the back of the gallery. This memorial is a powerful reminder of the racist history of Canada. In fact, more children's bodies have been found on the school property since Kamloops.
The Vancouver Art Gallery has been located at the site of the former provincial courthouse since 1983. This location is also close to the Vancouver City Centre station, which is a short five-minute walk away.
