Mercer Union, A Centre for Contemporary Art, is an artist-run centre dedicated to the advancement of contemporary art. We support the production and presentation of Canadian and international critical artistic practices, often premiering artists’ work to local and international audiences. Founded by artists in 1979, the production and commissioning of new work is at the core of our program, supporting artists from project inception to realization with substantial support and strong curatorial vision. We enable emerging or established artists to pursue important new directions or ambitions in their work.
