Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre

Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre is a non-profit organization facilitating the production, presentation, and interpretation of contemporary visual, time-based and interdisciplinary arts. Modern Fuel aims to meet the professional development needs of emerging and mid-career local, national and international artists, from diverse cultural communities, through exhibition, discussion, and mentorship opportunities. Modern Fuel supports innovation and experimentation, and is committed to the education of interested publics and the diversification of its audiences.


In our main display space, we endeavour to balance exhibitions by regional artists with those by extra-regional artists according to a 50/50 programming split. Modern Fuel Gallery programs strive to reflect the diversity of visual and time-based practices both regionally and extra-regionally, according to submission criteria as determined by the Programming Committee. Proposals are selected according to their exploratory character – exploratory insofar as they pose significant questions (formally, conceptually and politically) within current artistic and broader socio-cultural contexts.
