Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-08 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 2017-03-08 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 Visiting Artist Lecture: Lisa Birke 2017-03-08 19:30:00
Description

Lisa Birke is an award winning Canadian experimental short lmmaker who situates between the traditions of painting, digital video and performance art. She received an MFA with distinction from the University of Waterloo in 2013. She has had solo exhibitions across Canada and her short lms have been screened at lm/video festivals and media centres internationally, including amongst others: Vancouver International Film Festival (Canada), European Film Festival (touring), BLOWUP Chicago Int. Arthouse Film Fest (USA), Athens International Film + Video Festival (USA), ARTVIDEO LAB (France). Birke has recently produced projects for CAFKA 16 (Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area) and the Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery.

Lisa Birke examines notions of ‘self’ through the lens of gender, bringing the cultural tropes of woman into focus and into
question. Filmed unaccompanied in the Canadian landscape, absurd yet insightful performative acts become entangled in

nuanced and complex narratives in single and multi-channel video works that make reference to art history, mythology and
popular culture. Revealing what lies beneath the surface of femininity,
her work toys with a conclusion that is problematic, comi-tragic, and most essentially, human. Birke is currently Adjunct Faculty in the “Global Business and Digital Arts” and the “Fine Arts” departments at the University of Waterloo in Canada.
