Phantasy Arcade is a unique exhibition concept born out of quarantine, featuring 25 artists' renditions of their own original games onto physical 1/6th scale arcade cabinets!

Paper craft versions of each Phantasy Arcade cabinet will also be availabel in our shop.

An exhibition soundtrack of original chiptunes music will be available online. 


Born out of quarantine, Phantasy Arcade is an art exhibition of 1/6 scale arcade cabinets (12 inches tall) designed by artists. Made to look real but not actually be playable.

Artists are given a template and a chance to create their own Phantasy Arcade game. Games that we wish existed.

All cabinets are hand assembled and include a removable battery powered light and mini bluetooth speaker installed inside.

The marquee and the monitor areas will be lit to resemble a working arcade machine! 

Musicians will be selected to create an original chiptune song for each Phantasy game!

Only 15 people will be admitted into the STORE at a time.

Only 30 people will be admitted into the GALLERY at a time. 

Exhibition Date: December 12, 2020 - January 3, 2021
