OSAC (The Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils) has partnered with the Art Gallery of Regina (AGR) to present the project titled Moving Pictures, curated by Sandee Moore, Art Gallery of Regina. Moving Pictures is on-demand screenings of video works by Saskatchewan artists accessed through a free augmented reality smartphone app paired with AR-enabled posters at public locations. The AGR will present a curated selection of short films to be screened on-demand by anyone with a smartphone. Posters with “trigger images” will be placed throughout Saskatchewan communities. When viewed through a smartphone camera using the free app Artivive, a trigger image is a signal to Artivive to play the video as an overlay seen on the user's screen.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.

This event is free.
