Arts Commons Presents Visual and Media Arts supports and promotes local and national artists, collectives and community organizations that create innovative, thought provoking and exceptional work. We value contemporary art that animates and engages our patrons in artistic research and experimental art practices. We provide non-traditional gallery space for artists to take risks in a supportive environment.

Arts Commons Presents Visual and Media Arts is a multifaceted program that has developed strong partnerships with professional local and national art organizations to create more opportunities for artists. Some of our past partnerships include: Nuit Blanche Calgary, Intersite Visual Arts Festival, Mountain Standard Time Performative Art Festival, Papergirl Calgary, Artcity Festival of Art, Design & architecture, The City of Calgary Public Arts, Truck Contemporary Art in Calgary, Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers, and Yukon Arts Centre to name a few.

Our exhibitions and special projects enhance our patrons’ experience at Arts Commons while also promoting critical dialogue within the greater community. We strive to foster an inclusive community where emerging and professional artists are empowered to engage and take risks. By doing so we are creating a meaningful experience that creates connection and collaborative relationships between artists and the community.
