Contemporary Calgary provides Calgary and its visitors with a significant visual arts destination dedicated to modern and contemporary art.

The former Centennial Planetarium, itself a significant work of brutalist architecture, is a world-class gallery where we deliver outstanding local, national and international contemporary art programming. As a young and ambitious institution, we uphold the values that make us a welcoming, inclusive, engaging and relevant space that is expansive in its representation of artists and ideas.

We exhibit art and offer arts related programming because:

  • We believe that art can foster conversation and encourage the exploration of new ideas and critical thinking. 

  • We believe in the power of art to transform the places and the lives we live.

  • We share a passion for art that is relevant, meaningful, and challenging.

  • We share a passion for Calgary as a global city of choice
