Neutral Ground Contemporary Art Forum

Neutral Ground is an artist-centred gallery that develops and exhibits original visual and media art projects. Launched in 1982, Neutral Ground was formed to advance the artistic concerns of professional Canadian artists with an emphasis on contributing to a context for new and experimental artworks and ideas shaped by social forces and currencies in the art world. We provide a forum for the production and exhibition of contemporary art and transdisciplinary practices with a view to further developing the art forms represented.  

The centre accomplishes its artistic goals through a rigorous program of exhibitions, screenings, performances, residencies, commissioned works, a media lab, concert series, and publishing projects. The centre promotes knowledge and understanding of contemporary art and issues by engaging audiences with new modes of artistic production through it’s visiting artist and curator programs that provide interaction between the community and audiences. Educational programs run concurrently with professional development initiatives to influence or stimulate new project creation and public access to complex ideas and research.  

The centre maintains an open call for submissions for artists working in all media. The Board and Director also assume active roles in programming, soliciting projects and curating group exhibitions in order to ensure representation from diverse cultural voices and an articulated demonstration of the vision.  

Neutral Ground is incorporated provincially in Saskatchewan and registered federally as non-profit charity. We acknowledge funding and operational support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, the City of Regina, Sask Lotteries Trust, Sask Culture, the Department of Canadian Heritage, private donors and sponsors, and, by the activities of member-driven committees, volunteers, local professionals, our trans-local and local organizational partners and collaborators.
