Latitude 53

Vision Exploring the boundaries of contemporary art

Mission Latitude 53 creates sites for the intersection of contemporary art and ideas in Alberta.

Mandate Latitude 53 is Alberta’s leading contemporary art centre that: Animates and promotes thought provoking local, national, and international visual art Stimulates artistic research and education, audience engagement, and experimental art practices Provides a supportive environment for artists taking risks

Values Latitude 53 values: Experimentation Collaboration Critical engagement Artist-centredness Diversity Sustainability Risk-taking History Founded in 1973 by a collective of Edmonton artists, Latitude 53 is a not-for-profit artist-run centre. We provide a non-coercive environment to assure the freedom of the artist, and give the public access to new art forms.
Latitude 53 supports the research and development of new artistic practices and concepts, and encourages experimentation by artists through diverse programming. While experimentation in visual culture is the emphasis of the work that Latitude 53 facilitates, we seek work in a variety of disciplines, to become a locus for experimental culture.
