2167: An Indigenous VR Project

2167: An Indigenous VR Project

ImagineNATIVE

Works by Danis Goulet, Kent Monkman, Scott Benesiinaabandan, and Postcommodity

ImagineNATIVE in partnership with TIFF, Pinnuaq, and the Initiative for Indigenous Futures (IIF), present 2167, an innovative virtual reality and immersive media project. Five Indigenous filmmakers and artists have been commissioned to create five VR works in 2017, with each artist asked to set their work 150 years in the future.

The idea for this project was born out of a love of science fiction and alternate realities. Often Indigenous people are seen as stuck in the past; the 2167 project takes a very deliberate leap forward in time and we get to see artistic visions about Indigenous place in the future. In a year that in many ways commemorates a very complex history for Indigenous people, this project celebrates the decades to come and our role in shaping a new future for Canada.

Presented in the context of Amy Malbeuf's exhibition, tensions, at the Small Arms Inspection Building, January 5 to February 9, 2019
