Vision, Mission, Mandate and Values of Regart, Center for Contemporary Art Artists Vision Established in Lévis since 1986, the artist-run-centre Regart intends to ensure a dynamic presence in today’s visual art with audiences in Chaudière-Appalaches and Québec territories. Through original promotion and diffusion interventions, Regart works to develop and promote the practices of professional artists from the regional, national and international scenes, while maintaining privileged ties with the community. Mission On the artistic front, Regart is interested in the hybridization of forms of expression, the encounter and the mixture of practices. Thus, it encourages the merging of visual arts with other disciplines, or even other modes of apprehension of contemporary culture. By integrating this approach to hybridization, both in creative processes and in exhibition presentation contexts, Regart opens up to represent a diversity of perspectives that differ from the usual contextualities of diffusion. Mandate Presented mainly in the gallery, Regart’s programming highlights productions that are hybrid. Through out-of-the-wall events, infiltrations into the public space, singular collaborations and publications, Regart opens a wide range of reflections allowing artists to broaden their fields of artistic intervention. Thus, the center promotes experimentation and research through special projects that bring artists to recontextualize their […]

Here, on a total surface area of 1,200 m2, various forms of artistic expression are brought together and made accessible to the public. The focus is on film, space-defining art and music theatre, new music, jazz and experimental interpretations of contemporary music. The defining themes of the programming are situated on the event horizon of the existence of the individual and society, expressed through art in ways that are as unusual as they are transnational. As a result, audiences are treated to a modern-day arts salon of a highly entertaining kind. The REAKTOR is a showcase, workshop, initiator, principal, and producer, all rolled into one. The highest of artistic aspirations and, consequently, critical scrutiny, exploration, enjoyment and aesthetics complement one another at the REAKTOR. Audiences are invited to consider a change of perspective through an entertaining mix of autonomous positions, sensory experiences, and surprising crossovers. Both the programming and the presentation are designed to enable audiences to gain their own personal and individual insights into the featured works.
