Pith Gallery and Studios Mandate

Pith Gallery and Studios positions itself uniquely within Calgary’s arts community as a space for irreverence , experimentation, and practices that challenge our present conceptions of contemporary art. With the Pith vision at the forefront, the space provides affordable studios to local artists, and exhibits emerging and exciting work that has been sought out as a reflection of current dialogue surrounding contemporary art.

Pith expects to push the boundaries of contemporary art forward, focusing on defining its endeavours within the context of the public sphere. Consistent, responsible, and effective discourse between the broader public community and the space are of utmost importance. Pith desires to situate itself within Calgary’s public domain as an engaging and valuable site for new ideas, arts education, and productive debate.

Pith Gallery and Studios is curated by Natalie MacLean and Shawn Mankowske

Pith is located at 1018 9th ave SE Calgary AB
