We will be offering “by-appointment only” viewings for current TCU students, faculty, and staff only for both Moudy Gallery and Fort Worth Contemporary Arts. Email us at to make an appointment.


While we are sad not to have you with us in person, we will make sure you have lots of virtual and digital options to engage with the work of our students, faculty and guest artists. The Art Galleries at TCU will continue to showcase high quality art and artistic practice by contemporary artists.


Thank you,

Channel Drift

The MFA Thesis Exhibition of TCU New Media Student Chris Wicker

Moudy Gallery, Texas Christian University

March 29 – April 5, 2021

Virtual Exhibition: Coming Soon


The Art Galleries at TCU presents Channel Drift, MFA Thesis Exhibition by Chris Wicker.Channel Drift will be on view at Moudy Gallery from March 29 – April 5, 2021, with an online gallery and other digital materials coming soon.


Channel Drift defines a response to an evolving relationship between Wicker and television. The works, while being sourced from imagery consumed during the early 2000s, deal with concepts such as nostalgia, trance, video consumption, and sensory bombardment. Through manipulating, stretching, layering, and repeating appropriated media, Wicker translates his viewing history into a hypnotizing experience for the viewer. While being influenced by said past viewing history, analogue media, and intellectual properties such as Power Rangers and NASCAR, Channel Drift  provides insight on both past and contemporary media consumption through its use of culture jamming.
