THIRD SHIFT is an annual night time exhibition of public contemporary art projects presented by Third Space, a not-for-profit artist-run centre in Saint John, NB. Established in 2015, this event aims to offer Saint John residents a unique opportunity to re-imagine their city, activate vacant and under-utilized areas and engage with the surroundings of the Uptown 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. This year’s event will take place on Friday, August 18th from 7 pm – midnight.
