Connexion ARC (artist-run centre) is a not-for-profit, charitable arts organization and project space for the promotion and development of contemporary art. The centre operates in a flexible manner without a fixed location, diversely located in Fredericton,
Connexion ARC is working to activate new spaces that welcomes the public to engage with contemporary art and experimental art practices from across the country and abroad. This responsive method of artistic programming is made possible by building strategic partnerships with collaborating businesses, organizations, and institutions, and by emphasizing exchange within an expanding community of artists, curators, partners, and international visitors.
Established in 1984, Connexion ARC continues to play a vital role as Fredericton’s primary contemporary art space for over 30 years. Connexion develops and presents work within the local community but understands itself as part of a national art eco-system. Connexion’s programming focus is dedicated to building an international profile
for the provincial art-scene as an inclusive and dynamic place where interesting artwork is happening.
We are committed to:
- Promoting experimental contemporary art practices, with an emphasis on emerging artists and ideas.
- Supporting the professional development of our artist-membership
- Providing a supportive, open, and equitable space for the discussion of contemporary art
- Operating in a generative, responsive, and flexible manner, mirroring the experimental nature of contemporary art.
Connexion ARC pays full professional fees for all of its programming according to the CARFAC fee schedule.
We graciously acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Government of New Brunswick, individual project sponsors, and our active membership. We acknowledge that the land on which Connexion’s exhibitions and events take place is the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq peoples.
