Moving Pictures: watch videos on your cell phone via our posters
Moving Pictures curated by Sandee Moore artists: Rania AlHarthi, Lindsay Arnold, Ian Campbell and Heidi Phillips, David Garneau, John Graham, Dennis Jackson, Graeme Patterson, Theo Pelmus with Kristin Snowbird and Lindsey Rewuski Moving Pictures is a program of short video artworks that paint a complex portrait of Saskatchewan, its land and its people and their languages and their experiences. Together, the works included in Moving Pictures activate empathy and create understanding about our complex identities, drawing upon memories, commonality, and offering new insights. This project responds to the urgent need for programming that does not require people to gather in enclosed spaces. In partnership with the Organization for Saskatchewan Arts Councils, The Art Gallery of Regina has located it’s project in public spaces throughout the province; anyone with a cellphone can screen the videos by viewing a poster through their smartphone. By placing artworks in spaces casually traversed by the public daily, Moving Pictures expands options for experiencing contemporary art and removing many physical, social and economic barriers, both real and perceived, that can exclude members of our community galleries. Selected videos from the Moving Pictures program are also available online through our partner VUCAVU and with the assistance of SaskCulture.
This event is free.
Art Gallery of Regina
Located on Treaty 4, the traditional territory of the Cree, Saulteaux, Nakota, Lakota and Dakota peoples, and the homeland of the Métis people, the Art Gallery of Regina (AGR) promotes the development and appreciation of contemporary art, with an emphasis on Saskatchewan artists. Our programming focuses on the voices and experiences of Saskatchewan artists and visitors. AGR programming encompasses exhibitions (featuring established, emerging and recreational artists), education, publishing, workshops and artists talks. Through free public exhibitions and dedicated support for artists and innovation, the AGR has over 45 years as a supportive and creative cultural hub connecting artists and our communities. The Art Gallery of Regina is an autonomous, independent public art gallery with non-profit and charitable status. We are a tenant in the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre located within the vibrant Cathedral Village neighbourhood in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The Gallery opened as an experimental satellite of the Norman Mackenzie Gallery in 1974 under the name Rosemont Art Gallery. The Rosemont's objective was to reach new audiences and respond to community demands for more local and regional programming. In 1976 an independent organization formed and incorporated as a non-profit society to take over the Gallery. In 2005, after 30 years in operation, the name was changed to the Art Gallery of Regina to better reflect its scope and role in the community. The Art Gallery of Regina is at 2420 Elphinstone Street, inside the Neil Balkwill Civic Art Centre . The facility is entirely wheelchair accessible.
