Upper Space artists win the CUBEOpen 2011 Competition


Upper Space artists Shift//Delete have won the Cube Gallery’s annual CUBEOpen competition 2011. 

Launched in 2007, artists, architects and designers are invited to apply with work that reflects current trends and debates surrounding the spaces and places in which we live. Each year the exhibition highlights contemporary insights into the urban environment.  The CUBEOpen receives applications from around the globe and visitors to the exhibition will have the unique opportunity to see the diverse and engaging ways that artists, architects and designers have been influenced by our surroundings.

Cube - the centre for the urban built environment, is dedicated to broadcasting the ideas and issues that lie behind the buildings, spaces and cultural networks that make up our built environment.



‘Idiom’ Intervention on advertising space, 2010.
Shift//Delete are two of Upper Space’s flagship artists based in Manchester, UK. The CUBEOpen exhibition will feature a selection of previous works by Shift and during the exhibition there will be an unsanctioned intervention somewhere in the city, so stay tuned…

As a result of winning the competition,  Shift will be a resident artist at the Cube gallery in 2012 as well as  a residency at BEAM. 2012 is looking good.

Exhibition Dates:

16th December, 2011 – 4th February 2012
