Join us for an artist talk by Patrick Cruz and the launch of a publication accompanying his installation Yin Yang Temple, on Saturday December 17 at 2pm at UNIT/PITT Projects, 15 East Pender Street, Vancouver.

Patrick Cruz’s installation Yin Yang Temple was the first commission launched in UNIT/PITT’s series Ill Repute. Originally created in October 2011, it is an elaborate “listening station” consisting of a wild clash of paintings and other artifacts, and a soundtrack provided by constantly shuffling playlists, broadcast on low-power FM radio. These playlists were contributed by Cruz’s friends and colleagues, making this a collective work that underlines the social nature of his work, and the social production of artist-run culture.
