Contemporary Calgary's mission is to provide Calgary and its visitors with a significant visual arts destination dedicated to modern and contemporary art. We are creating a world-class gallery where we will deliver outstanding local, national and international contemporary art programming. Contemporary Calgary functions as a venue for exhibitions, distinguished speaker series and educational programs. Contemporary Calgary also plays an important role as a broader cultural hub, enriching our community by providing collaborative spaces for other local arts organizations.

Our vision is to help make Calgary a global city of choice by engaging its citizens and visitors with the art of our time. Contemporary Calgary shares a passion for art which is relevant, meaningful, and challenging. We are driven by our values: to be welcoming, inclusive, engaging, and relevant inviting all people to experience the art of our times, and we believe that art has the power to transform the places we live and enrich the lives we lead.
