The Wedge Collection was established in 1997 in Toronto by Dr. Kenneth Montague. It is now one of the world’s largest, privately owned contemporary art collections focusing on exploring African diasporic culture and contemporary Black life.
Originally conceived as The Wedge Gallery, this was both a private and public experience, with the original gallery literally wedged inside the narrow hallways of Montague’s home.
Today, the Wedge Collection, comprises over 200 original works by artists from Canada, the United States and throughout the Diaspora. It also houses an extensive catalogue of resource materials, including books, art journals, newspapers, magazines, and exhibition and artist documentation and lends works to international traveling exhibitions.
