Established in 1977 as the Kingston Artists' Association Inc. (KAAI), 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. Modern Fuel is registered charity, not a commercial art gallery/dealer. Visit our website for current and upcoming exhibition programming.
Now located at the newly renovated Tett Centre for Learning and Creativity at 370 King Street West
