Exhibit Margaret Peterson: A Search In Rhythm 2014-04-24 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 "The Devil's Knot" 2014-04-24 19:00:00
Description

THE DEVIL’S KNOT

Director: Atom Egoyan   USA, 2013, 115 min; 14A  

Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth

After twenty years, the story of the West Memphis Three still hasn’t disappeared. The murder of three young boys in West Memphis, Ark., and the conviction of three teens that clearly didn't kill them remains a loaded tale. Atom Egoyan interestingly presents the perspective of an outsider - an investigator (Colin Firth) – instead of the usual focus on the wrongly accused boys and it provides insight from a different angle alongside the mother (Reese Witherspoon) of one of the victims. You have to ask why are we so engaged with this story particularly Egoyan’s intense and absorbing recount. You want to close the book on this story but the questions continue to grow. –Victoria Film Festival
