Shift Work is a Fredericton-based collective whose organizing principle is a shared feeling of being a ‘part-time artist.’ In the last year, they have made time to make work together, and staged a series of pop-up exhibitions, each running 24 consecutive hours before disappearing again, into the ether.

Retail, Customer Service, Coffee Shop Work, Fitness Equipment Repairs, Graphic Design, Wedding Photography, Bookkeeping, Public School Teaching: their days fill up with other forms of labour; their hours are regimented by other economies, other tasks. Art happens in the interstices; collaborations and skill sharing happens too.

The exhibition Over Time brings together works by a selection of Shift Work artists, created in 2014: the first year of their collective activity.

Please join us Friday, March 26 for the exhibition’s closing reception 5:00 – 6:00 PM at The Fredericton Playhouse.

Admission is free, all are welcome.

THE NNEX is Connexion ARC’s project space, located at The Fredericton Playhouse. Exhibitions are made possible through the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, The Government of New Brunswick, The City of Fredericton and The Fredericton Playhouse.
