Changing order of names is deliberate at Griffin Art Projects

The news release about Griffin Art Projects caught my attention not only because it was about a new gallery opening in Metro Vancouver. What I noticed was how one sentence was worded.

Here’s what it said: “The inaugural exhibition has been drawn from the collections of Brigitte and Henning Freybe and Kathleen and Laing Brown . . . .”

What was different was that the women’s name was first in both cases. That looked to me like it was deliberate. I wondered why so I asked Helga Pakasaar, the curator of the inaugural exhbition in the gallery.

“Well, they preferred it that way,” she said.
