A glimpse of modern art made by artists who are living from 21st century. It showcases different combination of dynamic arts using modern methods and concepts in which reflects the society and its issues.
Although the exact starting point of the genre is still debated, many art historians consider the late 1960s (the end of modern art, or modernism) to be an adequate estimate (mymodernmet.com) .
Contemporary Calgary is the consolidation of Calgary’s Visual Arts Community. In December 2013, three arts societies – the Museum of Contemporary Art Calgary (MOCA), the Art Gallery of Calgary (AGC) and the Institute for Modern and Contemporary Art (IMCA) – merged their operations to form Contemporary Calgary. The new gallery provides visitors and Calgarians a significant destination venue for contemporary and modern art. Carol Ryder, Co-Chair of Contemporary Calgary, stated that ‘it is our shared vision that Contemporary Calgary can serve as the principal public visual arts destination in Calgary, and one of only a few in western Canada dedicated exclusively to contemporary and modern art. We believe our vision, based on operational excellence and innovative programming, will attract significant community support and engagement’. This merger intends to bring stability and dynamic growth to Calgary’s somewhat fragmented contemporary art scene and is a step towards creating the city’s first public contemporary art museum.
