Exhibit One Way or Another - Megan Dickie 2017-01-17 All Day

One Way or Another highlights the failure involved in the quest for excellence. The project originated with a trilogy of videos that use classic video games as a platform to investigate human struggle. Within this trilogy a character blunders through a series of obstacles that constantly defy her. These impediments are indicative of forms and concepts that drive my artistic practice: logic inspired, insurmountable forms that are turned into absurd objects of physical comedy. The structures from the videos have been brought to life through sculptures that focus on endless patterns. Together, the sculptures and videos create an immersive environment of humorous persistence. Questioning the value of human progress and highlighting the struggle for bigger, better and more.


Megan Dickie is an artist who works in the mediums of sculpture, video and printmaking. Her artistic research focuses on the seductive tension that exists between reason and play. Dickie explores this concept by subverting systems and structures with critically deployed humour.


Megan Dickie has exhibited her work across Canada with exhibitions at Oxygen Art Centre (Nelson), Latitude 53 (Edmonton), Stride (Calgary), Grunt Gallery, (Vancouver) BC, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Kenderdine Art Gallery (Saskatoon), Artcite Inc. (Windsor) and Artspace (Peterborough) to name just a few. Dickie has received numerous grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council. Her BFA in printmaking was obtained from the University of Calgary in 1997 and she received a MFA in sculpture from the University of Saskatchewan in 2002.  Megan Dickie currently resides in Victoria, BC and is an Assistant Professor of Visual Art at the University of Victoria.

Lecture/Seminar Bavarian Spring Flowers 2017-01-17 19:30:00

Victoria Natural History Society: BOTANY NIGHT
On a 2015 trip to southern Germany, Hans Roemer re-visited the spring flowers of his childhood. In just two weeks he was lucky to encounter and photograph nearly the full complement of attractive native plants that flower in the deciduous forest, on dry hillsides and in wet meadows. He even managed to capture the first flush of flowers on alpine pastures. Hans will explain the ecological settings within which these plants occur and have survived through the centuries. Many of the species and genera will be familiar to the audience from gardens or, if they grew up in the UK or Europe, from their own experience. Others will be of interest as additional members of widespread plant families.

Film WE CAN'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE 2017-01-17 19:00:00


Alanis Obomsawin is a member of the Abenaki Nation and hailed by POV Magazine as "the most notable Indigenous director in the world." Her latest powerful documentary chronicles the landmark Supreme Court of Canada case, which argued that First Nations children were being systemically discriminated against. This case shows how far we have yet to go as a nation in accepting the idea of Truth and Reconciliation. The case drags on for nearly nine years. In January 2016, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal finally rules that the Government of Canada has indeed discriminated against indigenous children and orders it to reform its policies accordingly.  –Vancouver International Film Festival    

Taking the audience right into the courtrooms, as if we are the invisible jury, Obomsawin’s film crackles with the tension of a gripping legal drama while never losing sight of the stakes at play. –Cinema Axis
