08.19.16 THIRD SHIFT

THIRD SHIFT 2016 took place between 7p.m. and midnight on August 19th. We want to thank everyone who volunteered, attended, sponsored, worked and documented THIRD SHIFT this year.

THIRD SHIFT is an annual night time exhibition of public contemporary art projects presented by Third Space Gallery. Established in 2015, this event aims to offer Saint John residents a unique opportunity to reimagine their city, reclaim vacant and under-utilized areas and engage with the surroundings of the uptown built environment. Participating artists reflect on the area’s cultural landscape and historic architecture to develop their projects and exhibit the works.

THIRD SHIFT highlights 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. For more information about this year’s participating artists and the THIRD SHIFT Artist in Residency Program please visit the THIRD SHIFT website.
