The first edition of Montreal's OASIS Immersion experience opened at Palais des congrès on February 25 — and it's the perfect weekend escape from Quebec's current COVID-19 reality.

The premiere exhibition is called Inspirations, a look through the lens of Quebec's creative talent. It uses 105 laser projectors and 119 surround sound speakers "to both enthrall and invigorate you," says the website

The immersive spaces can often feel like they transport you from one psychedelic dimension to the next, but their contents never lack substance and always seek to educate.
