We Were the Places That We Wanted to Go

Featuring Phantoms in the Front Yard

October 3 – November 2, 2019

First Thursday: October 3, 5 – 8pm
Artists’ Reception: October 5, 5 – 7:30pm

Gallery 110 welcomes the Vancouver-based collective, Phantoms in the Front Yard, with work by Michael Abraham, Jeremiah Birnbaum, Andrea Hooge, Paul Morstad, Jay Senetchko, Jonathan Sutton and guest artist Marcus MacLeod.

Reflecting on the concept of what constitutes legacy, We Were the Places That We Wanted to Go explores the theme of passing life’s lessons down from one generation to the next. Drawing from a range of contexts such as personal narrative, nostalgia, pop culture and climate change, as well as using the figure as subject, the Phantoms invite the viewer to interpret the relevance, permanence and effect legacy has on its inherent recipient.

Phantoms in the Front Yard (PITFY) is a figurative collective founded in 2010, with exhibitions occurring in alternative venues and dedicated to creating an experience of figurative art for all, not just among academics and industry veterans.
