Research + Presentation Centre, curated by Amanda Jehring and Steffanie Ling, and featuring contributions from Jesse Birch, Stefana Fratila, Lenox & Burrard, Michael Turner, and Jerry Zaslove, closes this Saturday. This project is a custom-designed reading room with five great research collections, custom notebooks, and free photocopying.
Kate Armstrong: Path opens on Friday, May 11 at 8pm. Path is a 12-volume bookwork generated by the daily activity of an anonymous individual. We’ll be presenting a new edition of this work, including an audiobook that will be broadcast on UNIT/PITT Radio; in the evenings, we’ll be showing a video project by Kate Armstrong and Michael Tippett, Space Video, in the window of 15 E. Pender.
Don’t forget the launch of SETUP #2 at UNIT/PITT on Thursday, May 3, at 8pm. SETUP #1 was launched here at the Pitt almost a year ago, and we’re happy to have them back.
Not least of this, and just announced: our neighbours down the block, The Rennie Collection, are helping out the Pitt with a benefit event on Friday, May 25: a screening of three short films by Francesco Vezzoli. Admission is $10, which includes one drink; proceeds from the evening go to the Pitt, to help sustain our exhibitions, events and publications in the coming year. Tickets should be purchased in advance, online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/246101. We’re really grateful for the help: thanks neighbours! (And the films are great too …)
