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.

As the oldest alternative art space in the Coastal Bend region, K Space Contemporary provides a forum for under-represented emerging and mid-career artists whose work is experimental, non-commercial, or difficult to exhibit in traditional venues due to unusual installation requirements. Our Art Education and Outreach Programs extend into the community to increase awareness about the importance of art in our society. K Space Summer Mural Arts Camps create murals in public places.

Events and activities at K Space Contemporary include exhibitions and opening receptions, gallery lectures, educational workshops and outreach, film screenings, and a wacky, hair-raising fundraiser called Wig Out. K Space Contemporary partnered with the Corpus Christi Downtown Management District to establish the monthly First Friday ArtWalk, and with Axis Tattoo to organize the extremely popular Dia de los Muertos Street Festival in downtown Corpus Christi.
