The group was formed in Calgary in October 2016 by nine Calgary-based visual artists with the intention to provide the forum for artistic, conceptual and philosophical debates on the current state of contemporary visual culture in Canada and around the globe, and to visually articulate and address their concerns through a series of regular art exhibitions and publication projects.

The inaugural exhibition "Group 9"  The Persistence of Vision" features a vast scope of artistic trends and stylistic approaches in the works by nine, well-known Calgary-based artists and the founding members of Group 9.  The impressive roster of work ranges from the colour-field abstract paintings by Seka Owen, Errol Lee Fullen and Verna Vogel, through lyrical abstraction of Asta Dale, to the post-Structuralist sculptures by Ron Kostyniuk and abstract sculptural projects by Greg Robb.  These works are strategically balanced with the metaphoric works by Jean Pederson (paintings) and Cameron Roberts (sculpture), and the elements of Eastern philosophy and symbology in the works by Greg Pyra.
