Exhibit Salish Reflection: Coast Salish Art and Artists on Campus 2014-10-31 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated in collaboration by Caroline Riedel, Justine Auben Drummond & Dr. Andrea Walsh

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street | Small Gallery

This exhibition honours Coast Salish artists Chris Paul, Maynard Johnny Jr., and knitters May Sam and the Olsen family (Adam, Joni, and their mother Sylvia) who were part of the University of Victoria's Artist in Residence Program through the Department of Anthropology between 2011 and 2013. During their 3 month residency they taught students about their own artistic practices as well as aspects of Coast Salish history and contemporary culture. The exhibit illustrates the teaching methodology and experience of students and artists in collaboration along with examples of the artists' work.

The Artist in Residence Program is facilitated by Dr. Andrea Walsh, who teaches the Anthropology of Art, and the program is supported by donors George and Christiane Smyth.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-10-31 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated by lessLIE

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street

In this exhibition the theme of perpetuation unifies the work of five contemporary Coast Salish artists who live and work in this region. The word perpetuation is meant to suggest a continuum of ideas and processes, which come from distinctive traditions that have existed over millennia. Perpetuation also infers some of the challenges that contemporary Coast Salish artists continue to face in the contexts of colonialism and assimilation as well as the dominance of other Indigenous traditions, which were often favoured by the art world, in both commercial and educational contexts. It is only in the last three decades that Coast Salish art has become more readily recognized by a wider audience as distinct from other Northwest Coast traditions.

This exhibition presents a wide range of art forms and ideas, and visitors will gain a better understanding of the cultural and stylistic elements that unify and inspire these contemporary artists in their own artistic practices. Artists featured are Maynard Johnny Jr., lessLIE, John Marston, Susan Point and Dylan Thomas.

Lecture/Seminar Great River Deltas as Keystone Arctic Ecosystems and Recent Changes in the Mackenzie Delta 2014-10-31 14:45:00
Description

Great River Deltas as Keystone Arctic Ecosystems and Recent Changes in the Mackenzie Delta

Lance Lesack
Professor, Departments of Geography and Biological Sciences,
Simon Fraser University

Recent results have revealed that winter air temperatures in the Mackenzie Delta of the western Canadian Arctic have warmed considerably since 1960.  However, warmer springs rather than warmer winters have been driving more rapid ice breakup in the Mackenzie River Delta because winter snow depths have also declined over the same period.  These results are counterintuitive to effects expected in the Arctic from an intensifying hydrological cycle, driven by warming temperatures.

This presentation will explore the importance of these findings for Mackenzie Delta and its role as a keystone ecosystem of the greater Arctic region.

Film "The Trip to ITALY" 2014-10-31 15:00:00
Description

THE TRIP TO ITALY
Director: Michael Winterbottom   UK, 2014, 109 min; PG

“A HILARIOUS ROMP THROUGH THE ITALIAN COUNTRYSIDE.” –HeyUGuys
Rob Brydon finally makes his pal/sparring partner Steve Coogan (“Philomena”) crack up, laughing, in “The Trip to Italy.”
The formula of “The Trip” is repeated — two actors, one semi-famous, the other less famous — off on a dining tour, riffing, debating, insulting and driving. But this time, they’re sent to Italy. Sunshine, local wines, pasta and winding roads along the Amalfi Coast. They’re hitting famous little hotels, lovely restaurants from Alba to Capri, the narrow streets of Rome to the Catacombs of Naples.
 As in “The Trip,” we’re treated to dueling Michael Caines, Brandos, Pacinos, and Hugh Grants….An altogether delightful vacation. –Movie Nation

Other Arts, Spaces, Communities - AHVS Grad Student Symposium - Call for Papers 2014-10-31 08:00:00
Description

Visual Impetus XIII: Arts, Spaces, Communities

Graduate Student Research Symposium
Department of Art History and Visual Studies, University of Victoria

There is an increasing need for an understanding of visual culture not just in the arts but also across all disciplines. Often the examination of art places less emphasis on the effects of visual culture on its surrounding environment.  Yet so much knowledge can be gained by looking at how the locations, spaces, communities, and encompassing materials impact and engage with the arts.  Art has the power to define physical boundaries, reflect social values, bring people together, and even drive economic development.  The organizers of Visual Impetus XIV seek presentations that address visual culture, which have impacted or changed spaces and communities from around the world.

We welcome submissions from graduate students of all disciplines, as long as the content focuses on the arts or visual culture. Please send your paper proposal, consisting of a 250-word abstract and brief CV, to the symposium organizational committee.

Submissions must be made via email by December 1, 2014 to Committee Chair Regan Shrumm: rshrumm@gmail.com

Please include your full name, student status, contact information, and schedule availability with your submission. Presentations must not exceed fifteen minutes in length.

Visual Impetus XIV will take place on January 23rd and 24th at the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia.
