Exhibit Margaret Peterson: A Search In Rhythm 2014-06-17 All Day

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.

Exhibit Exhibition Tour: Epiphany: Highlights from the Legacy Permanent Collection 2014-06-17 14:00:00

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.

Film "GLORIA" 2014-06-17 19:00:00

GLORIA     Back by popular demand!

Director: Sebastián Lelio  
Chile, 2013, 110 min; Spanish with subtitles; 14A

“Are you always this happy?” Rodolfo asks Gloria, shortly after catching her eye. They are at a nightclub where middle-aged residents of Santiago, Chile, dance and flirt, and where Gloria, in her 50s and long divorced, occasionally goes to attract the attention of a silver-haired Romeo. No, she says, sometimes in the mornings she is sad, and in the afternoons, too.

The great accomplishment of “Gloria,” the Chilean writer-director Sebastián Lelio’s astute, unpretentious and thrillingly humane new film, is that it acknowledges both sides of its heroine’s temperament without judgment or sentimentality. Gloria, played with dignity and gusto by Paulina García, is too complicated for such treatment.

Her life is a familiar jumble of pleasures and frustrations, her personality a weave of moods, foibles and admirable traits. She sometimes drinks too much, and hovers needily around her two grown children. She endures a dull office job. She is immune to self-pity and not averse to emotional risk.

One of the delights of “Gloria” is that its richly detailed realism is fuel for thought: about Chile, about men and women, about the cycles of family life. But Mr. Lelio is interested, above all, in showing Gloria exactly as she is, which is beautiful.

--The New York Times

One of the most enjoyable movies to come along in a while.” --Los Angeles Times

“It elevates your mood to such a point that you wish you could hug the screen out of sheer joy and recognition!”  –RogerEbert.com
