ShiftSpace: a student-run, roaming gallery

Be part of the contemporary art scene.

Established in 2005, ShiftSpace Gallery earned its name from its early days as a "roaming" gallery. ShiftSpace is still on the move, so be sure to check our Facebook and/or Instagram accounts for more details on openings, events, and exhibitions.

The ShiftSpace Student Group programs the gallery, prepares exhibitions, and engages in community outreach. With the assistance of Gallery Manager Jefferson Godard, students take on every gallery role, including curator, preparator, community outreach coordinator, social media manager, and more. The group is open to any currently enrolled Wichita State University students.

Please stay tuned for an upcoming collaborative one-night performance between ShiftSpace and Fisch Haus. In this exhibition, the viewer (you) are the artist. You are invited to participate and the only thing you will need to bring is a copy of a loved one's photo who is no longer with us. During the event, you will have the opportunity to create an artwork that celebrates your loved one! Refreshments will be served and a movie will be screened later in the evening.

The Fisch Haus Gallery is located on the ground floor at 524 S Congress, Wichita, KS, 67202
