Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector 2017-03-15 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.

Appropriate for ages 13+

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-15 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 2017-03-15 10:00
Description

630 Yates Street 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

Lecture/Seminar Treasures and Tea: The Queen's Printer and the Colonies 2017-03-15 12:30:00
Description

Caron Rollins, Law and Government Publications Librarian, UVic Libraries, and Marilyn Carr-Harris, Government Publications Librarian, Legislative Library

March 15, , 2017, 12:30-1:30 pm

Room A003, Lower Level, Mearns Centre for Learning—McPherson Library

Much of the early history of British Columbia can be gleaned from the pages of official government gazettes. Produced by the Queen’s Printer, the gazettes contain official notices, proclamations, and laws of government, and serve as a window into early British Columbia.  The first issue of the Government Gazette for the colony of British Columbia was published on January 3, 1863. In this talk, Caron Rollins, UVic Libraries and Marilyn Carr-Harris, Legislative Library, will discuss the ongoing digitization project to make the gazettes available online and the overall research value of these publications.

Treasures and Tea in Special Collections and the University Archives brings together researchers, instructors, students, and members of the community to explore and share materials from the collections. The informal show-and-tell presentations are followed by discussion and refreshments.

Lecture/Seminar Visiting Artist Lecture: Tori Foster 2017-03-15 19:30:00
Description

Tori Foster is a Los Angeles-based conceptual artist whose work centers on emergent behaviour and the urban landscape. Heavily process oriented, very little of Foster’s work is a direct representation of captured environs. Rather, captured imagery is treated as data, subjected to a series of actions, and re-presented to expose alternate information inherent to, but not visible in, the original dataset. Foster is the recipient of dozens of grants and awards and has shown work in 16 countries world-wide, including Germany, India, Korea, Australia, Brazil, and America.

Recent and current projects include: Primaries, photographic archetypes of urban, suburban, and rural trees in North America; Cadence, a kinetic installation illustrating the emergent behaviour of vehicles in motion, and Robotic Herd, a community of autonomous robots that migrate across a gallery space for which Foster was awarded a New Media Research and Production grant from the Canada Council for the Arts in 2016. Foster is currently Assistant Professor and the Head of Video/Digital Art at California State University, Northridge. She is represented by Pari Nadimi Gallery in Toronto, Canada.

Film TONI ERDMANN 2017-03-15 19:00:00
Description

TONI ERDMANN

Director: Maren Ade; Germany, 2016, 163 min; German with subtitles; 14A

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

Comedies are supposed to be short, but this German farce succeeds by virtue of its endlessness—like its hero, an aging irrepressible joker, the movie keeps bugging you until you can't help but laugh. Winfried (Peter Simonischek) loves gags and goofy disguises, and his penchant for fun has alienated him from his grown daughter (Sandra Hüller), now a hard-charging business consultant. Winfried travels to Bucharest to spend a few weeks with the daughter and turns her neatly ordered world upside down, donning fake teeth and a black hippie wig and passing himself off to her associates as life coach Toni Erdmann. –Chicago Reader

A crazy, inventive, and emotive father/daughter escapade. –Toronto Star

Film The Thinking Garden 2017-03-15 19:00:00
Description

By popular demand, a second screening of The Thinking Garden: Wed. March 15 @ 7 pm, David Lam Auditorium, MacLaurin A144.

Free public screening and launch of 'The Thinking Garden,' a documentary film about South African women sowing the seeds of change. Q&A with filmmakers following. A film by Humanities professors Christine Welsh and Elizabeth Vibert. Three generations of South African women created a community garden in the dying days of apartheid. Twenty-five years later the garden is still going strong, helping to confront the ravages of climate change, poverty and HIV/AIDS. Beautifully filmed against the backdrop of a drought now gripping southern Africa, The Thinking Garden tells the inspiring story of how local action in food production can give the most vulnerable people a measure of control over their food and their futures. 35 min. In xiTsonga with English subtitles.

Event sponsored by UVic Centre for Global Studies and departments of Gender Studies and History
