Exhibit Epiphany: Highlights from the Legacy Permanent Collection 2014-07-12 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 2014-07-12 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.

Film "Only Lovers Left Alive" directed by Jim Jarmusch 2014-07-12 19:00:00
Description

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE

Director: Jim Jarmusch   USA, 2013, 125 min; PG  Cast: Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin

“ALL KINDS OF PERFECT.” –Time Out New York

With this stylishly droll twist on vampire lore, writer-director Jim Jarmusch posits eternal life as a kind of indefinite bohemian holiday. Cast for their ethereal swagger, Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton play Adam and Eve, ageless undead spouses. He’s a cult musician laying low in Detroit. She’s a world traveler living in Tangiers. When they feast, the lovebirds do so from blood-bank withdrawals instead of jugulars, each sip sending them into a narcotized reverie. Their real appetite, however, is for culture. Nothing passes the centuries better than a good read or a great tune. Jarmusch has crafted something truly special this time out: a funny, deeply romantic hangout movie that treats art not just as a reason to live, but also as a rejuvenating force in a relationship. --The AV Club
