Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2015-01-28 All Day
Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Exhibit IN SESSION - ONE 2015-01-28 10:00
Description

January 17 to March 28, 2015

Curated by Mary Jo Hughes

Megan Dickie | Laura Dutton | d. bradley muir | Tara Nicholson

This is the first part of an on-going series of exhibitions over the next few years featuring the artists who work as Sessional Instructors in the UVic Visual Arts department. This exhibition looks at the recent practice of four artists who work with photography, video, and digital media arts. In Session - One celebrates the significance and power of photo-based art in an age where social media and advertising threaten to inundate and numb us with visual overload. These artists also investigate themes including the relationship between the photographic image and its physicality as an object, light as a material presence, and the time/space/memory relationship of digital media arts.

Film "Dear White People" 2015-01-28 19:00:00
Description

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE

Director: Justin Simien; USA, 2014, 109 min; 14A

“THE BEST FILM ABOUT COLLEGE LIFE IN A LONG TIME!” Chicago Tribune

 “HILARIOUS!” New York Magazine

“WHIP-SMART COMEDIC WRITING!” The Playlist

Here's a comic riff on race relations in the Obama era that hits its targets far more than it misses. Set on a fictional Ivy League campus, Dear White People marks an auspicious debut for writer-director Justin Simien, an African-American who laces his satire with delicious mirth and malice. The plot centers on four students coping with being a black face in a white place. Even mellow Lionel (the excellent Tyler James Williams), a gay student with an Afro, steps up to protest when a frat house throws a party in which whites are urged to attend in blackface (hey, it happened). The fun is nonstop, the cast is top-tier, and Simien is a talent to watch. What are you waiting for? –Rolling Stone

Lecture/Seminar Return of the Raptors 2015-01-28 19:30:00
Description

BIRDERS NIGHT-Victoria Natural History Society
 
Return of the Raptors
Populations of raptors—hawks, eagles and falcons—were decimated by massive applications of pesticides in agriculture and in forestry in the decades following WW II. But their populations recovered after DDT was banned in the early 1970s, and nowadays they are a common sight, even in cities. Top predators like raptors have powerful effects on entire ecosystems, most famously illustrated by the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park in the 1990s. Analogously, raptors have effects much further-reaching than the relatively small number of prey they kill. In this talk Dr. Ron Ydenberg (SFU) will relate what we now understand about these effects.
