SHIFTWORK announce 24 hour pop-up art show – March 3, 2017.
SHIFTWORK is excited to announce their next 24-hour-long Pop-Up Art Show. The exhibition Shift, Work, Repeat. will open on Friday, March 3 at 7:00pm in the SHIFTWORK Studio, located at 384 Queen Street (third floor), closing at 7:00pm on Saturday, March 4.
Bringing together new artworks by more than a dozen artists, Shift, Work, Repeat. will present video, performance, drawing, painting, and digital artworks — all organized around the theme of repetitive acts and repeated forms.
Leading up to the show, the collective is working with Grid City Magazine to launch a weekly series of works-in-progress titled Sketch Wall, which will pair visual artworks with written responses by other artists, using a call-and-response format.
SHIFTWORK was formed in the spring of 2014 to make space for local artists to create in the off hours, between the demands of day jobs or night shifts. Loosely organized around a shared studio space, the Fredericton-based collective meets regularly to discuss current projects, and plan upcoming events.
Past exhibitions organized by the collective have included Night Shift at SHIFTWORK studio, and Nudes at Connexion ARC, along with a series of performances, zine launches and print sales organized in collaboration with Flourish Festival and The Shifty Bits Circus.
Shift, Work, Repeat. will be SHIFTWORK’s 8.5th Pop Up Show (They’re pretty sure).
