Ministry of Casual Living moving, changing

Back in 2010, when the Pitt had an office but no permanent gallery, we received a very nice postcard from the Ministry of Casual Living in Victoria, inviting us to bring a show there. What resulted was Exhibition To Be Destroyed, Again and the book of the same title (the first of many Pitt/Publication Studio co-publications).

Now the Ministry is in a similar position. After a decade or so of being a window gallery at an obscure retail crossroads in Victoria BC, redevelopment is forcing them to become nomadic. We wish them the best, and here’s hoping there’s another collaboration in our future somewhere.
