Annual Call for Submissions at Modern Fuel

Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre facilitates the presentation, interpretation, and production of visual and time-based arts. Our exhibitions engage with an array of approaches to contemporary aesthetics, and cover a broad scope of conceptual, formal, socio-political and cultural questions. We 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.

Submissions due March 1

All submissions are now completed online.


Receive Artist Fees

As an advocate for contemporary art, as well as for artists' rights, we pay professional fees to artists in accordance with the CARFAC fee schedule.

  2. Bio (150 words per bio)
  3. CV
  4. Supporting documentation (up to 20 files)
  5. Any technical requirements
