VISION

Contemporary Calgary is contributing to a global city of choice by engaging Calgarians with the art of our times through exhibitions, distinguished speaker series, outreach and education programs.

MISSION

The iconic Centennial Planetarium, itself a work of art, will be transformed into a significant public cultural destination for Calgary and its visitors featuring modern and contemporary art. 

 
Contemporary Calgary began with a collaboration of visual arts partners including the Institute of Modern and Contemporary Art (IMCA), the Art Gallery of Calgary (AGC) and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MOCA) in co-operation with members of the Calgary visual arts community.
 
  • We believe in the power of art to transform the places and the lives we live.
  • We share a passion for art that is relevant, meaningful, and challenging.
  • We share a passion for Calgary to be a global city of choice.

It is time to step up and put Calgary's voice into an exciting international dialogue.

Calgary has the potential to not just create links with traditional art centres like Europe but to also develop and innovate interesting projects in other parts of the world like Asia, the Middle East, South America and Africa.
