Founded in 1982, Artcite Inc. is southwestern Ontario’s only incorporated, registered charitable, non-profit artist-run centre, founded, directed and managed by practicing professional artists in various disciplines. Dedicated exclusively to expanding the visibility of contemporary arts within our region and advancing the professional presentation, promotion and animation of contemporary art forms, Artcite maintains a balanced and diverse program of events, including: ten or more gallery and off-site exhibitions and site installations by Canadian and international artists; guest artist lectures, workshops and residencies; screenings of experimental film and video art; experimental music and audio; multi-disciplinary performances and special projects, including our annual, community-wide MayWorks Labour Arts Festival; our biennial, off-site Fahrenheit Festival of fire sculpture and performance; our Free 4 All Walls international street art mural project; our monthly Stitch ‘n’ Bitch and Artist Trading Cards sessions; and public readings by Canadian and international authors and poets.
Located in the heart of Windsor’s downtown core (and only three minutes from the greater metropolitan Detroit area), Artcite’s highly visible, partially bisected storefront gallery space is particularly well suited to solo, two-person and group exhibitions, as well as installations that make full use of the gallery space and windows, and are politically or socially engaged.
