On the occasion of its partial reopening, the Centre d'exposition L'Imagier unveils its public art exhibition in augmented reality (AR) Tout-Terrain: Régale | Regal which will be accessible to the public free of charge on Principal Street (Aylmer, Gatineau) from August 13 to October 24, 2021. This exceptional exhibition, by its experimental and innovative nature, puts forward the vibrant and unique works of five Indigenous artists for this outdoor 2.0 journey in augmented reality.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has been gripped by the impact it’s had on our in-person interactions; what was once taken for granted, societally, now is a privilege and of great value. Tout-Terrain: Régale | Regal features five Indigenous artists who explore shifting and culturally specific notions of what is precious — Carrie Allison (Cree/Métis), Caroline Monnet (Anishinaabe/French), Heather Campbell (Inuit), Katherine Boyer (Métis/Colonial) and Natalie King (Anishinaabe) curated by Franchesca Hebert-Spence (Anishinaabe) — whose work, together, demonstrates community wealth, richness, and strength by reminding us of the tightness of our circles, connection to the land, as well as our inheritance and continuity of knowledge. These moments are a true gift, so we invite you to take the time to pause, celebrate and revel in these connections. Tout-Terrain: Régale | Regal will open in conjunction with the Old Aylmer Festival celebration weekend.
Tout-Terrain: Régale | Regal uses an app, Hidelight, which features locative-media art via augmented reality (offering a digital interactive experience). Artworks are accessible through the Hidelight application at five partner locations along Principale Street: Bistro L'Autre Œil, Cassis Gelato & Sorbet, 5e Baron, crêperie Beurre Salé and at the Parc de L'Imaginaire. To enjoy this public art exhibition, download the Hidelight mobile application for free on the App Store.
