Exhibit Re-Imagining Race, Art, and Landscape 2017-03-10 19:00:00
Description

3 artists, 3 performances, 1 event. How do artists of colour experience race and identity? Grafton Tyler Brown was one of the first professional landscape artists in 19th Century British Columbia, and the story of his racial identity shifted throughout his career to where he eventually "passed" for white. As part of Legacy Art Galleries' programming, three contemporary artists of colour Charles Campbell, Kemi Craig and Victoria's youth poet laureate Ann Bernice Thomas (UVic Writing & Theatre) will perform new work that responds to Grafton Tyler Brown's exhibition and themes of racial identity. The performances are part of UVic's IdeaFest 2017.

Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector 2017-03-10 20:00:00
Description

The Inspector

March 9 –18, 2017

By Nikolay Gogol
Adapted & Directed by Linda Hardy

Word arrives in a little government town that an inspector is coming – incognito! Panic seizes the town’s officials: Will their little improprieties be exposed? Meanwhile, a lowly civil servant visiting from out of province is mistaken for the inspector. The officials outdo themselves to please him with gifts and he, in turn, grows bolder. This satirical farce spins out of control, as hypocrisy, corruption, and human greed escalate. Gogol’s comedy of errors, written in19th-century Russia, is no less relevant in our modern political landscape.

7PM pre-show lecture with director Linda Hardy.

Appropriate for ages 13+

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-10 10:00
Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Exhibit Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-03-10 10:00
Description

This exhibition celebrates the career of Kwakiutl (Kwakwaka'wakw) carver Ellen Neel (1916-1966), the first woman carver of monumental totem poles. Further, it acknowledges Neel's influential role as a professional artist and her contribution towards the recognition of Northwest Coast Indian art as a contemporary art form.

"Our art continues to live, for not only is it part and parcel of us, but can be a powerful factor in combining the best part of Indian culture with the fabric of a truly Canadian art form."

Ellen Neel

Film LION 2017-03-10 15:00:00
Description

LION

Director: Garth Davis; Australia, 2016, 119 min; rated G

NOMINATED FOR 6 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST PICTURE! 

A moving performance from Dev Patel is the resilient soul of this enthralling feature debut from Garth Davis that tells the true story of Saroo Brierley and his tenacious quest to find the family from whom he was separated 25 years earlier. Tempering its sentimentality with authentic feeling, the film is a stirring contemplation of roots, identity and home. Sunny Pawar, who plays Saroo as a 5-year-old in the opening chapter, and Nicole Kidman, as Saroo's adoptive mother, give beautiful performances. –The Hollywood Reporter

“Lion is one from the heart.”Rolling Stone

“A beautifully told, uplifting story of courage and determination.” –Chicago Sun-Times

Lecture/Seminar GRS Department Seminar: Sarah Levin-Richardson 2017-03-10 14:30:00
Description

A public lecture hosted by the Department of Greek and Roman Studies at the UVic will be presented by:

Professor Sarah Levin-Richardson (Assistant Professor, Department of Classics, University of Washington) will present a public lecture entitled, “Agency and Oppression in Pompeii’s Purpose-Built Brothel.”

This talk delves into the emotional, social, and physical experiences of sex workers—both male and female—in what may be the most (in)famous brothel from Roman antiquity. By re-examining the structure’s architecture, frescoes, graffiti, and archaeological finds, an environment both more brutal and more full of resistance is revealed than previously thought.

Professor Levin-Richardson specializes in Roman Art and Archaeology, Gender and Sexuality, and Latin Graffiti.  She has a book on Pompeii’s brothels in preparation, and has published extensively on ancient sexuality in the Roman context. 

UVic’s Public Lecture Series features accomplished individuals from a vast array of academic and research endeavours.  As host of this lecture series, UVic continues its commitment to making a vital impact on people, places, and the planet.
