Modern visual arts
A non-collecting, non-commercial contemporary art gallery presenting five to six art exhibitions per year by local, national and international artists, public programs and events. See the website for what's on, upcoming and programming details.
While preparing for the next phases of renovations, Contemporary Calgary is pleased to welcome the community back and into their new home at the Centennial Planetarium. Operating under a new programming initiative, Temporary Contemporary, they are pleased to present Brutal Visions, an exhibition acknowledging their iconic Brutalist building, its vital role as a science centre and planetarium, and its existing transformation into Canada’s newest modern and contemporary art gallery. Running concurrently, Clemens Gritl’s A Future City from the Past displays large-scale architectural photographs which mine the aesthetics and ideologies of the past to adopt a critically optimistic lens in imagining our future. At the core of their programming, Contemporary Calgary has launched Collider – an open studio artist residency with over 30 artists from the City working onsite and in a highly collaborative environment. Collider is an unparalleled opportunity to build diverse and robust relationships, produce and exhibit new work, and develop an extensive series of public programs.
More than just a place to exhibit modern art, this gallery is adding Calgary’s voice to the international art scene. A non-collecting, non-commercial gallery, they show art that is relevant, meaningful and challenging.
