Third Shift Media Release
THIRD SHIFT is a nighttime exhibition of public contemporary art projects presented by Third Space Gallery. THIRD SHIFT aims to inspire Saint John residents to reimagine their city, reclaim vacant and under-utilized areas and engage with the surroundings of the uptown built environment. Participating artists will reflect on the area’s cultural landscape and historic architecture to develop their projects and exhibit the works. This night-time art experience will be unique to Saint John.
THIRD SHIFT will highlight the work of emerging and established artists who cross disciplines and boundaries in their examinations of contemporary culture. All activities established by THIRD SHIFT are free and open to the public. This year’s event will take place on August 19th, 2016.
Third Space Gallery is pleased to offer a two-week residency program as a supporting partner of THIRD SHIFT 2016. Artists may apply for the THIRD SHIFT Residency in addition to submitting a project proposal. One artist will be selected through an open call for submissions to spend two weeks, from August 5th to August 19th, developing a site-specific project for THIRD SHIFT 2016.
