About Us: K Space Contemporary is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization dedicated to presenting and promoting contemporary art. As a forum for creative exchange and experimentation, we aspire to educate and build awareness for innovative art in South Texas. K Space Contemporary is located in downtown Corpus Christi, Texas.

K Space Contemporary is the oldest alternative art space in the Coastal Bend region. In addition to promoting contemporary art, a primary goal of the organization is to exhibit emerging and mid-career artists. K Space fills a void, which is not met by other local art organizations, by providing a forum for under-represented artists whose works are experimental, non-commercial, or difficult to exhibit due to unusual installation requirements or site-specific ideas.

Events and activities at K Space Contemporary include exhibitions and opening receptions, street festivals, educational workshops, film screenings and lectures.


About the Juror:

Based out of Houston TX, Trenton Doyle Hancock has become the youngest artist ever to be invited to take part in the prestigious Whitney Biennial in New York, and became well known in the US when he was featured in a PBS television series called Art in the 21st Century.  His distinctive style emerged nearly ten years ago, a personal epic mythology which owes something to comic books, toy designs and the cinema, and something to Christianity (son of a Baptist minister).  In his work, stories evolve into complete environments, tied together by a written narrative which loops and leaps around the paintings.
