Film Film Week: THE DELAY; by Rodrigo Pla (Uruguay, 2012 - 84 mins) 2014-09-20 19:00:00
Description

LA DEMORA [The Delay]; by Rodrigo Plá (Uruguay, 2012 - 84 mins)

A single mother with three kids works from home as a tailor for a big textile firm.  She is left with taking care of her aging father, who also lives at home.  Welfare agencies turn down her request for taking in her father because she is not below the poverty line.  One day while returning home with him, she takes a fateful decision, one that, eventually, she will come to regret....  A drama that touches on the economic and psychological strains on the contemporary family, The Delay is a masterfully directed film that leads the spectator to a suspenseful resolution.

The 5th Latin American and Spanish Film Week is organized by the Hispanic Film Society of Victoria and sponsored by the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies, the Department of Women's Studies, the Division of Continuing Studies, the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Office of Community Relations and the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost at the University of Victoria, as well as by CRD Arts Development Service and the Consulate General of Mexico in Vancouver.

We are grateful for the support of the Passion for Tango Society, the CFUV radio program Postales Musicales de Latinamérica (101.9 FM), and community member Randall Recinos-Drago.

English subtitles.  Showtimes are 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. at Cinecenta in the Student Union Building.  Cost:  $4.75-$7.75 (regular admission fees).  For full details, visit www.cinecenta.com/.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-09-20 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated by lessLIE

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street

In this exhibition the theme of perpetuation unifies the work of five contemporary Coast Salish artists who live and work in this region. The word perpetuation is meant to suggest a continuum of ideas and processes, which come from distinctive traditions that have existed over millennia. Perpetuation also infers some of the challenges that contemporary Coast Salish artists continue to face in the contexts of colonialism and assimilation as well as the dominance of other Indigenous traditions, which were often favoured by the art world, in both commercial and educational contexts. It is only in the last three decades that Coast Salish art has become more readily recognized by a wider audience as distinct from other Northwest Coast traditions.

This exhibition presents a wide range of art forms and ideas, and visitors will gain a better understanding of the cultural and stylistic elements that unify and inspire these contemporary artists in their own artistic practices. Artists featured are Maynard Johnny Jr., lessLIE, John Marston, Susan Point and Dylan Thomas.

Exhibit Salish Reflection: Coast Salish Art and Artists on Campus 2014-09-20 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated in collaboration by Caroline Riedel, Justine Auben Drummond & Dr. Andrea Walsh

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street | Small Gallery

This exhibition honours Coast Salish artists Chris Paul, Maynard Johnny Jr., and knitters May Sam and the Olsen family (Adam, Joni, and their mother Sylvia) who were part of the University of Victoria's Artist in Residence Program through the Department of Anthropology between 2011 and 2013. During their 3 month residency they taught students about their own artistic practices as well as aspects of Coast Salish history and contemporary culture. The exhibit illustrates the teaching methodology and experience of students and artists in collaboration along with examples of the artists' work.

The Artist in Residence Program is facilitated by Dr. Andrea Walsh, who teaches the Anthropology of Art, and the program is supported by donors George and Christiane Smyth.
