Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre


A cat­a­lyst for cul­tural activ­ity in Kingston, Ontario, Mod­ern Fuel Artist-Run Cen­tre is in its 39th year of oper­a­tions, incor­po­rated as Kingston Artists’ Asso­ci­a­tion Inc. (K.A.A sero­quel online.I.) on 12 Octo­ber 1977. Mod­ern Fuel Artist-Run Cen­tre is a non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion facil­i­tat­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion, inter­pre­ta­tion, and pro­duc­tion 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. 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.
