While the gallery space is currently closed, we are committed to staying connected to our UCI arts community.

As we begin our limited return to campus, the Catalyst board invites you to join us in creating an experimental "unbound" gallery experience outside of the traditional space. What will that look like? Nighttime projections onto campus buildings? Digital galleries? Immersive live performances? Guerrilla installations? I mean - we're down!

We will close out the Fall quarter with TENTH THURSDAY, DECEMBER 2 @ 6:30 pm. Add the calendar event for updates!


In the meantime, check out our recent "Meet the Curators" show, and our "Time Delayed" publications showcasing student work during 2020-21.
