Remai Modern is closed temporarily to help mitigate risks to the public and staff related to the spread of COVID-19. We will reopen and resume public events as soon as it is safe to do so. Thank you for your support and patience as we assess the evolving situation and react accordingly.

Remai Modern, a new museum of modern and contemporary art, opened on October 21, 2017 in Saskatoon, a growing city on the Canadian Prairies. Remai Modern is a direction-setting art museum and gathering place for culture and community. The building includes 11 gallery spaces, a 150-seat theatre, Shift restaurant, outdoor terraces and rooms with stunning views of the South Saskatchewan River. We provide a Canadian and Saskatchewan perspective on global modern and contemporary art movements through a mix of regional, national and international programs.

Vision

Remai Modern is a thought leader and direction-setting art museum that boldly collects, develops, presents and interprets the art of our time.

Our mandate is to enable transformative experiences by connecting art with local and global communities.


Principles

REMAI MODERN IS...

  • Defined by artists, and supports their work and vision to the fullest extent.
  • Committed to interrogating the idea of “modern” from multiple cultural, historical and contemporary positions.
  • Respectful of Canada’s Indigenous communities and aims to be a leading centre for contemporary Indigenous art and discourse.
  • A leader in developing new models for sharing knowledge and engaging diverse communities.
  • A platform for rethinking the role of the 21st-century art museum.
  • A museum that invites everyone to actively participate in the artistic process.



Remai Modern is situated on Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of Métis. We pay our respects to First Nations and Métis ancestors and reaffirm our relationship with one another.

Remai Modern programming is made possible through generous support from the Frank & Ellen Remai Foundation, the City of Saskatoon, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Saskatchewan Arts Board and SaskCulture through Sask Lotteries.
