Exhibit Margaret Peterson: A Search In Rhythm 2014-07-30 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.

Exhibit Epiphany: Highlights from the Legacy Permanent Collection 2014-07-30 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.

Film talking heads "Stop Making Sense" 2014-07-30 19:10:00
Description

STOP MAKING SENSE

Director: Jonathan Demme   USA, 1984, 88 minutes

To celebrate its 30th anniversary, this essential concert film receives a first-ever digital release in a limited theatrical run! 

Arguably the best live document of any band, ever, “Stop Making Sense” (also released as a live album) is a unique interpretation of the band at their creative peak, with director Jonathan Demme keeping the focus directly on the band, including David Byrne in his now-iconic big suit. The result is euphoric. Songs include “Psycho Killer,” “Burning Down the House,” “Once in a Lifetime,” “This Must Be the Place (Naïve Melody).”

“GREATEST CONCERT MOVIE EVER!” –Rolling Stone

“Has there ever been a live concert film as vibrant or as brilliantly realized?” –San Francisco Chronicle

Music Victoria Summer Music Festival: The Dover String Quartet 2014-07-30 19:30:00
Description

The Dover String Quartet, which swept the 2013 Banff International String Quartet competition, winning the first prize package, awards for best performance of Haydn and Schubert quartets, and best performance of Vivian Fung's imposed piece. A commentator in The Strad has noted that the Dover Quartet is "already pulling away from their peers with their exceptional interpretative maturity, tonal refinement and taut ensemble." They will be playing Josef Haydn's G Major Quartet op. 76, No. 1, his most ambitious quartet; Felix Mendelssohn's Quartet in E minor op. 44, No. 2; and Samuel Barber's B minor Quartet op. 11, the one with the beloved adagio movement.
