UNIT/PITT Projects (formerly the Helen Pitt Gallery) is a non-profit artist-run centre dedicated to the promotion of experimental contemporary art that addresses social, political, cultural and critical issues. We promote and facilitate public dialogue concerning critical awareness, social consciousness, contemporary art practices and community.
Although we are based in visual art practice, our programming goes beyond the presentation of exhibitions into media, telecommunications, public actions, publishing, music and performance. We support and assist in the development of artists’ curatorial projects, concentrating on a limited set of projects each year.
UNIT/PITT was founded in 1975 as the Helen Pitt Gallery, a student-run space associated with the Vancouver School of Art, and rapidly evolved into an artist-run space for exhibitions, music, performance and the incubation of new ideas. An outline of this history can be found in the ARCLines project, at http://arcpost.ca/articles/unitpitt-disorganization-of-discontent.
