Opening: 2-5pm on Saturday, August 26th

State of Flux Gallery + Window Space, Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre

Modern Fuel is pleased to present Associations, a group exhibition addressing the social dimension of contemporary cultural production. 

Participating artists: Michelle Bunton, Candice Davies, Elise Boudreau Graham, Gabriel Deerman, Fraser McCallum and Anne-Marie Proulx

Curated by Michael DiRisio

In conjunction with this exhibition we will be starting a "Policy Matters" reading group, discussing the history of artist-run centres and other noncommercial arts organizations, as well as arts administration more broadly. Thanks to a generous donation by Clive Robertson of two-dozen copies of his book Policy Matters: Administrations of Art and Culture, all participants will be loaned a copy while participating in the reading group. This will be an invaluable opportunity to critically reflect on artist-run culture and its often unseen administrative side, while discussing ways of improving access for marginalized and racialized communities. If you would like to participate in the reading group please email info@modernfuel.org with the subject "Reading Group".
