Category Title Date Time
Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-03 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.

Film PATERSON 2017-04-03 19:00:00
Description

PATERSON

Director: Jim Jarmusch; USA, 2016, 118 min; PG

A gem. Adam Driver stars as a bus-driving poet (or poetry-writing bus driver) in this Zen fugue from American director Jim Jarmusch. Driver has never been more in-the-moment. Paterson feels like the most intimate, heartfelt film from Jarmusch in a long while. It’s like a stone skipping across a pond, surprising us with widening ripples of revelation. It’s a one-of-a-kind, strangely moving film, and as close as cinema gets to pure poetry. --Maclean’s

ADAM DRIVER’S PERFORMANCE IS EXQUISITE. –Seattle Times

Jarmusch has actually remade "Groundhog Day" as a work of spiritual ecstasy.Boston Globe

A small miracle of a film, one that is both intellectually dazzling and emotionally provocative.San Francisco Chronicle

A LOVELY FABLE. –Time Out
