This fall, delve into the depths of the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection where spirits linger and demons gather. Apparitions as old as time brush up against contemporary anxieties in this expansive exhibition featuring etchings, lithographs, woodcuts, drawings, and more. As the year continues its gradual, but certain, transition to darkness, we shed light on what has made a home there. Featured are works from Francisco Goya’s series Los Caprichos, where the famed Spanish romantic painter and printmaker satirized late 18th century Spanish society through the depiction of follies, superstitions, and failures. Such historical works are set alongside contemporary works that add colour to the foreboding they portray. Canadian artist Betty Goodwin delicately examines the fragility of human life and the states it traverses in work from her series Le Memoire du Corps. With over 30 artists represented, Spectral Visions will transport visitors through chilling encounters present and past.

With works by Courtney Andersen, Johnniebo Ashevak, Doug Biden, Fastwürms, Deborah Lee Filchak, Betty Goodwin, Francisco Goya, Geoff Greene, Elizabeth Griffiths, Ron Hamilton, J.C. Heywood, Hannamari Jalovaara, Don Jarvis, Helen Kalvak, Sara Leydon/Peter Culley, Elizabeth MacKenzie, Fiona McKye, Carel Moiseiwitsch, Lyndal Osborne, Ed Pien, Marianna Schmidt, Mark Tobey, Otis Tamasauskas, Mina Totino/Geoffrey Farmer/ Eric Metcalfe, Richard Turner, Jan Wade, Neil Wedman, Vivienne Wong and Tania Willard.
