Lecture/Seminar Bird collisions with glass--a real headache 2014-10-22 19:30:00
Description

BIRDERS’ NIGHT - VICTORIA NATURAL HISTORY SOCIETY
 
Collisions with windows are considered to be one of the largest sources of human-caused mortality for birds in North America. An estimated 25 million birds are killed annually in collisions with buildings in Canada and 365-988 million in the U.S. Many high-rise office buildings are clad in large expanses of reflective glass, that can cause a disproportionately high number of collisions annually, particularly if they are adjacent to areas that attract high densities of birds. Krista de Groot will explore why birds collide with glass, the scope and severity of the issue, and what you can do about it in and around your home and business.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-10-22 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.

Exhibit Salish Reflection: Coast Salish Art and Artists on Campus 2014-10-22 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.

Film "The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared" 2014-10-22 19:00:00
Description

THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED
Director: Felix Herngren 
Sweden, 2013, 114 min; Swedish with subtitles

There's more than a sprinkling of magic in this beautifully conceived and executed tale about a centenarian (Robert Gustafsson) who likes blowing up things. Adapted from Jonas Jonasson's best selling novel, director Felix Herngren has crafted a clever Swedish black comedy that feels as though it is in perpetual motion. It is full of surprises and if you thought that a film whose central character is 100 years old might be dull and staid, think again. The character is simply a conduit with whom we fly on a madcap carpet ride that incorporates historic events and icons from the past. This uplifting, crowd pleasing entertainment is a road movie, a character study, a wild adventure and black comedy all rolled into one. It's a helluva ride.—Urban Cinephile
