March 09 - April 02
10am - 5pm daily
Founded in 2010, Phantoms in the Front Yard is a Vancouver-based touring art collective with the man-date to challenge the contemporary Canadian art scene, reviving the human subject as muse. The Phantoms exhibition SPACE revolves around the word itself and its various meanings, including the physical space of the venue itself.

Figurative art has become the phantom of the fine art world, haunting both Modernism and Postmodernism with its ties to a classical tradition, refusing to be dismissed, ignored or forgotten. How does individual personal space relate to the physical space we share?

Historically, Canadian artists have identified a sense of open geography – The North in its expanse be- yond a sparse band of cities on a single national highway. North Vancouver houses its own mythology of a vast wilderness beyond the back door. There are only two roads to cross from Capilano Lake to Alaska. Meanwhile we increasingly dwell in cities, which are themselves increasingly dense, North Vancouver’s rapid property development being no exception. On what scales do we map our daily experience?

How do the individual spaces we inhabit sit and intersect within our larger geography? How do we affect the space around us, and how does it affect us?
