Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre facilitates the presentation, interpretation, and production of contemporary visual, time-based and interdisciplinary arts. Their exhibitions engage with an array of approaches to contemporary aesthetics, and cover a broad scope of conceptual, formal, socio-political and cultural questions. They welcome proposals for solo and group exhibitions, as well as performances, curatorial projects, collaborations, lectures, workshops and other events.
Modern Fuel’s programming strives to reflect the diversity of aesthetic practices both regionally and extra-regionally, according to submission criteria as determined by the Artistic Director and Programming Committee. Proposals are selected according to their critical and exploratory character–exploratory insofar as they pose significant questions (formally, conceptually and politically) within current artistic and broader socio-cultural contexts.
Modern Fuel is committed to supporting professional artists, and as such we pay professional fees in accordance with the CARFAC Ontario guidelines. A professional artist is someone who:
-has specialized training in the artistic field (not necessarily in academic institutions)
-is recognized as a professional by their peers (artists working in the same artistic tradition)
-is committed to an on-going artistic practice
Please note that Modern Fuel program approximately two years in advance. Selected proposals from this Call will be programmed for 2021.
