Exhibit Art of the Book 2013 2014-02-01 10:00:00
Description

Art of the Book 2013 both embodies and defies the traditional definition of what a book can be. The content ranges from calligraphy to blackout poetry, while the books take on imaginative forms such as luggage-style tags or DNA's double helix. Drawing from ancient techniques, the artists have represented a full history of book making, including the modern e-book. Organized by the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild, this 30th anniversary juried exhibit features award winning work from some of the best makers in North America.

Description

Davis Cup, Canada vs. Japan: The Embassy was contacted by Tennis Canada about the upcoming Davis Cup tie between Canada and Japan, to be held in Tokyo Jan 31-Feb 2, 2014. Tennis Canada is expecting a travelling group of supporters to come over from Canada, and is coordinating a block ticket purchase so that local Canada fans can be seated together to form a Canadian cheering section. It sounds as though they are also planning an event for the fans in advance of the tournament as well to rally support, learn team cheers, pass out shirts, etc. Tennis Canada hosted a similar event in Serbia in September, which was apparently a huge success.

They’ve asked us if we could reach out to the Canadian community in Japan to let them know about the tournament, and pass along the information about the block ticket purchase.
Details are here in English: http://www.rogerscup.com/eblast/DC_e-blast_2014/index.htmland French: http://www.rogerscup.com/eblast/DC_e-blast_2014/index_fr.html. For Canadian fans, tickets purchased through these sites for the Team Canada section can be held under their names at the box office for the event.

Film "Blue is the Warmest Color" 2014-02-01 15:00:00
Description

BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOUR

Director: Abdellatif Kechiche   France, 2013, 180 min; French with subtitles; Restricted – no admittance to anyone under 18

“THE BEST FILM OF 2013” –San Francisco Chronicle

“PERHAPS THE FIRST GREAT LOVE STORY OF THE 21st CENTURY.” --Salon.com

WINNER! PALME D’OR & BEST ACTRESSES! –Cannes Film Festival

Once in a while a movie comes along that doesn’t just affect how you think or feel, it performs its own kind of physical alchemy, burrowing its way into your consciousness so thoroughly that you feel permanently marked and changed.  Abdellatif Kechiche’s long, sprawling, boldly immersive coming-of-age drama, works just this sort of magic.

A naturalistic portrait of the sexual and romantic awakening of a teenage girl — played in an astonishing breakout performance by newcomer Adèle Exarchopoulos — “Blue Is the Warmest Color” portrays the day-to-day life of Exarchopoulos’s character, also named Adèle. Adele meets Emma (Léa Seydoux), a fresh-faced, blue-haired art student she first glimpses on a crowded street, then pursues into a lesbian night club. The two women fall into a rapturous, physically electric affair, with Adèle beguiled by Emma’s assured delivery of a sentimental education.

The high point of that tutorial is the prolonged, intimate sex scene that this year made “Blue Is the Warmest Color” the talk of Cannes, where it won the festival’s top awards. Debate immediately ensued around whether Kechiche was perpetuating an exploitative heterosexual male gaze or claiming new space for representing gay desire on screen. Reasonable people can disagree, but what sets “Blue Is the Warmest Color” apart from sensationalism are the daily moments that precede and follow the more notorious sex sequence — the myriad otherwise forgotten occurrences that comprise a love affair that, when it inevitably ends, turn out to have been the most important all along.

Hours, even days later, filmgoers may find themselves thinking of Adèle and wondering how she’s doing — only then realizing how completely this fictional but very real creation has winnowed her way into their hearts and minds. That’s great acting. It’s great art. And that’s why “Blue Is the Warmest Color” is a great movie. –Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

Conference Venice and Cairo 2014-02-01 09:00:00
Description

27th Annual Medieval Workshop

Spend a full day in two of the most beautiful and prosperous cities of the Middle Ages, settled at the margins of powerful empires, defying prejudice and authority. Islands of culture and wealth, conquered over the desert for Cairo and over the sea for Venice, these two cities write a story of dialogue, art, and trade.

In these workshops, you will explore:
the former slaves who became rulers under the name of Mameluks
the Jewish community in Cairo; the hostelries for merchants in Egypt
the fashions and trends found at rich Italian merchants'
and the friendship between Boccacio and Petrarch in Venice.

You‘ll discover music from Orient and Occident, performed on Venetian lute and Oriental oud. Most of all, you will be part of the vibrant Victoria community which gathers for the Annual Medieval Workshop.To see the full itinerary:  http://trk.cpro30.com/Tracking/t.c?68cat-bgtt1-ruebf99&_v=2

Lecture/Seminar 27th Annual Medieval Workshop-Venice and Cairo 2014-02-01 09:00:00
Description

The population of Cairo prior to the appearance of the Black Death in 1348 has been estimated at about 250,000 people. Paris in the same period contained only a third of that number and London just a quarter. The power of Venice came not from its size, but from its maritime trade. This port dominated international commerce in the eastern Mediterranean, bringing exotic spices and Middle Eastern manufactured goods to the markets of Europe. Venetian merchants made their homes in Cairo, but the two cities were connected in many other ways. In this workshop speakers will explore the ways in which the arts, architecture, and literary traditions of the two cities were mutually enriched through trade, diplomacy, travel, and even piracy.
