Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-05 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 SILENCE 2017-04-05 19:00:00
Description

SILENCE

Director: Martin Scorsese  USA, 2016, 161 min; English & Japanese with subtitles; 14A

Cast: Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver, Yōsuke Kubozuka, Liam Neeson

Set in the seventeenth century, two Portuguese priests, Rodrigues (Andrew Garfield) and Garrupe (Adam Driver), have heard rumors that their teacher and confessor, Father Ferreira (Liam Neeson), a missionary in Japan, has betrayed his Christian faith, and they travel to search for him. En route, they learn of the bloody persecution that Christians face in Japan, and when they’re smuggled into the country they, too, face the authorities’ wrath. Rodrigues is the protagonist of this picaresque epic of oppression and martyrdom. As he closes in on Ferreira the movie morphs into a spectacularly dramatic and bitterly ironic theatre of cruelty that both exalts and questions central Christian myths. It plays like Martin Scorsese’s own searing confession. –The New Yorker

“THE VERY NATURE OF BELIEF ITSELF IS AT THE HEART OF ‘SILENCE’” –Seattle Times
