YPF Osheaga weekend

Pavement! Weekend highlight.







I just got back from my weekend in Montreal at the Osheaga music festival where I was involved in the YPF's installation on the festival grounds. Perfect weather, perfect friends. Thanks to the YPF people for involving me in their project again this year.


The YPF. La Chasse.



The YPF invites you to our outdoor installation. "La Chasse" is a tribute to the traditional hunters camp, reflecting on the past in a creative and thought provoking way. A magical meeting point of psychedelic dreams. Let's dance into the fire.

Founded in 2003, the YPF is a group of dedicated artists who appreciate the tenet that there is strength in numbers. By creating a forum in which they can explore and develop their respective metiers, the group enjoys the support and encouragement provided by a creative community. Moreover, they are able to foster a continual learning environment by taking advantage of each otherʼs diverse skills and interests, and can effectively organize and promote themselves and their work.

Based in Montreal, where they have been prolific during their life as a collective, showing locally and abroad in places such as The Drake Hotel (Toronto, ON), All Tomorrow’s Parties (Long Beach, CA), Jeff Electric Gallery (Silver Lake, CA), The Open Gallery (Long Beach, CA), The Glass House (Pomona, CA), Osheaga Festival at Parc Jean Drapeau (Montreal, QC), Centre Fractal in association with Pop Montreal (Montreal, QC), and Studio Jenia of the Belgo Building (Montreal, QC).


This years contributing artists:
Dessa Harhay, Jen Storey, Fred Casia, James Kerr, Krissy Longtin, Milena Rogilic, Maryanna Hardy, Tyson Bodnarchuk, Yana Gorbulsky and Brandon Jan Blommaert
