There's an exhibit coming to Kamloops this month, and it's not your typical art show. 

The Kamloops Art Gallery is hosting Luminocity, a free outdoor, week-long video art exhibit that will light up the parks and streets of downtown Kamloops from Oct. 23 to Oct. 31.

The show comes to Kamloops every two years. In 2018, Luminocity highlighted key themes in current video practices, with works featuring female protagonists, Asian folklore and traditional Indigenous practices.

This year Luminocity responds to the unprecedented events of the present moment.

"The world is collectively experiencing a pandemic with its effects of death, loss, and isolation, the upheaval of economic and political systems, and mass uprisings against police brutality and white supremacy, amidst the ongoing climate crisis," the Kamloops Art Gallery said in a media release.

"Humanity as we know it is in question."

The exhibit explores themes of power and resistance, strength and fragility, public and private, connection and isolation.

Keep an eye out for projections on the façades of buildings and from windows, plus numerous installations at Riverside Park.

There will be nightly guided tours in Riverside Park Oct. 24 to Oct. 29 and Oct. 31, at 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. Two curator walking tours of all the projects have also been offered Oct. 23 and Oct. 30 at 7 p.m.
