Exhibit Witness Blanket at UVic 2014-06-07 09:00:00
Description

Kwagiulth artist and Master Carver Carey Newman (Ha-yalth-kingeme) officially presented his large-scale installation, the Witness Blanket, during the opening ceremony of CUVic 2014 at UVic on May 20. It is now available for public viewing until June 8, 2014.

The dimensional blanket is an art installation inspired by the traditional woven blanket as a symbol of protection and comfort. It evokes the atrocities of Indian Residential Schools, as well as a national journey toward reconciliation.

It has over 600 objects and artifacts—including rock, wood, tiles, bricks, chunks from building foundations, an old drum, pages from books, panes of glass, patchwork prayer kneelers, two children’s hockey skates and two hanks of hair from Newman’s sisters in honour of their father’s experience—collected on gathering trips over the past year to residential school sites, churches, courthouses, government buildings, and traditional and cultural structures across Canada.

The blanket currently holds seven panels and, once complete, will feature 13 in total and will measure two metres high and 12 metres wide.
 

Memebers of the public can be assured of viewing the blanket during the following hours, until June 8 in the University Centre lobby Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Exhibit Exhibition Tour: Epiphany: Highlights from the Legacy Permanent Collection 2014-06-07 14:00:00
Description

Join University of Victoria graduate students Brin O'Hare & Alanah Garcin for a tour of Epiphany: Highlights from the Legacy Permanent Collection.

Tour topic | Expressing New Insight: 

Emily Carr, Robert Rauschenberg, and Epiphany in Art.

In the mid-1930s, Emily Carr's interest in the poetry of Walt Whitman increased substantially. This heightened interest led to an epiphany that changed Carr's perception of the natural world and her approach to artistic production. As an artist concerned with the rapidly changing post-war climate, Robert Rauschenberg adapted his aesthetic to reflect new technological developments and their social, political, and ecological impact. The mid-1960's saw a shift toward the use of lithographic collage in order to express his unique insight into the problematic implications of new technologies as well as the potential benefits. This tour focuses on the relationship between epiphany and perception. By examining the work of Carr and Rauchenberg as well as a number of other artworks included in the Legacy Gallery's permanent collection, O'Hare and Garcin will explore the impact that epiphany can have on perception and how altered perception can result in an epiphany. 

Brin O'Hare is a recent graduate of the University of Victoria's History in Art Master's program. Her research interests include modern and contemporary Canadian art and the relationship between visual art and literature. Alanah Garcin is also a recent graduate of the University of Victoria's History in Art program. Her research interests include American modern art and the relationship between art, technology, and science.

Exhibit Epiphany: Highlights from the Legacy Permanent Collection 2014-06-07 10:00
Description

May 1 to August 9, 2014

Curated by Mary Jo Hughes.

An epiphany in its broadest sense is the experience of sudden realization or insight. Through an epiphany, our world broadens and new understandings and ideas are unlocked. Indeed, this widening of perspective remains the ultimate goal for most artists. The experience of epiphany is what the exhibition aims to engender in viewers through highlights from the extensive permanent collection held by the University of Victoria's Legacy Art Galleries. It is intended that each piece will offer a unique insight or a fresh experience that was not entirely expected. Artists in the exhibition include, Robert Davidson, Emily Carr, Norval Morrisseau, Lawren Harris, Frederick Varley, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Myfannwy Pavelic, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jack Shadbolt, among others.

Exhibit Margaret Peterson: A Search In Rhythm 2014-06-07 All Day
Description

A Search In Rhythm features the artworks and personal papers of the groundbreaking mid-20th century abstract painter, Margaret Peterson (1903-1997). Peterson had a big vision: to search for the spiritual realm, in rhythm with the artistic aims of Indigenous peoples across the world. Peterson's main medium was egg tempera on plywood panels—striking in size, colour, and form. By showcasing Peterson's possessions, photographs, and writing about her work alongside the works themselves, her vision and search is more fully realized. This is the first in an upcoming series of exhibitions presenting the University of Victoria's Artist Archives and Legacy Art Galleries joint holdings which demonstrates the rich research potential of this recently acquired material.
