Exhibit unlimited edition 2015-08-29 10:00
Description

unlimited edition attempts to construct an art historical framework that looks at how prints by Aboriginal and Inuit artists represented in the Kamloops Art Gallery's permanent collection, supplemented by works on loan from the Carleton University Art Gallery and Legacy Art Galleries, represent a drive to preserve, portray and popularize oral histories and address social inequities in the medium of printmaking. Featuring prints from Northwest Coast, Woodlands and Inuit artists with a focus on an early period of printmaking in the 50s through to the 70s, unlimited edition showcases prints that relate to ideas of cultural story, politics of land, and the beauty of Indigenous aesthetics.

Description

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD

Director: Thomas Vinterberg   UK, 2015, 119 min; PG

Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge

“CAREY MULLIGAN IS MAGNIFICENT!” –Salon

Thomas Hardy’s classic Victorian tale about one woman’s dueling desires for feminist independence and fiery passion. Danish director Thomas Vinterberg’s latest film version is the best yet. With a steely resilience burning beneath her delicate, creamy complexion, Carey Mulligan brings remarkable nuance to the role of Bathsheba Everdene, an English country girl who inherits her late uncle’s farm, leading to a trio of romantic suitors: the earthy shepherd (Matthias Schoenaerts), the rich landowner next door (Michael Sheen), and the rakish bad boy in uniform (Tom Sturridge). Mulligan refuses to play the helpless, hapless victim. She’s strong and smart and sensual. –Entertainment Weekly
