Our Venues

Modern Fuel Gallery

In our main display space, we endeavour to balance exhibitions by regional artists with those by extra-regional artists. Modern Fuel Gallery programs strive to reflect the diversity of visual and time-based practices both regionally and extra-regionally, according to submission criteria as determined by the Programming Committee. Proposals are selected according to their exploratory character – exploratory insofar as they pose significant questions (formally, conceptually and politically) within current artistic and broader socio-cultural contexts.

State of Flux

As a non-juried members’ space, the State of Flux’s programming strives to feature exploratory artwork (as defined above) in visual and time-based disciplines. The State of Flux aims to present: 1) works in progress; 2) works deemed more ‘experimental’ (because they are explorations in new directions for an artist); 3) works by students and emerging artists; and 4) site specific projects that evolve within the space itself.
Art in the Streets

Art in the Streets

The Art in the Street programs aim to feature artworks in visual and time-based media that engage more assertively with the Kingston community-at-large. Proposals are selected based on their relevance to Kingston community politics and well-being and on their potential to stimulate interest within non-art and art audiences. Art in the Streets prioritises the presentation of artworks that can develop a participatory discourse between artists and non-artists.
