FUSE was a Toronto-based Canadian non-profit arts and culture periodical published by Artons Cultural Affairs Society and Publishing Inc. FUSE was one of Canada’s longest running alternative art publications. Throughout its 38 year history, the focus has been the interchange between art, media, and politics. The magazine published its final issue in Winter 2013,[1] under the editorial direction of Gina Badger.

The focus of the magazine shifted from “an interdisciplinary artists” magazine to "a cultural news magazine”.[2] The publishers of FUSE incorporated as Artons Cultural Affairs Society and Publishing in 1984.
