This is yet another message telling you to donate to something before the year runs out. Seriously, you should. There are a lot of organizations out there who do important, serious, well-established work that demands your unquestioning respect.
We’re not one of those.
For almost forty years the Pitt has done odd, risky, and sometimes ill-advised projects sometimes with artists you have never heard of, or with artists who haven’t been taken seriously, or with artists who are leaving their “normal” work to try something different. We ask people who have never curated gallery shows before to curate exhibitions and performances and screenings. We publish a quarterly magazine of local art reviews even though every other magazine like that in Vancouver history has gone down the tubes.
In short, if you want to support a visual art organization that does everything the right way, that’s not us. But if you think that there is some kind of virtue in doing things the wrong way, you should definitely support UNIT/PITT.
