April 8 to September 16, 2017

Origin Stories

First Nations Prints and Carvings

Guest curated by Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) with Gillian Booth and Katie Hughes.

As Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation, the Legacy Art Galleries respectfully acknowledges a much longer history by presenting First Nations narratives that move beyond limited settler versions of history. Through prints and carvings chosen by guest curator, Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) from the Fort Nelson First Nation, the exhibition explores centuries-old stories that continue to live in the people, communities, nations and lands of this place.

Lecture/Seminar Health Information Science Seminar Series: Exploring new challenges for Health Informatics research and education in the context of Precision Medicine 2017-05-10 12:00:00
Description

Health Information Science Seminar Series:

Presented by Dr. Fernando Martin-Sanchez

The US Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) defines precision medicine as an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle. This presentation will examine how health informatics can contribute to generating richer and more robust evidence about healthcare aims, health processes, and health outcomes in the context of Precision Medicine through Participatory Health Technologies. It will also present potential new ways of structuring our skills, methods, expertise and educational programs such that the next generation of health informaticians is placed at the best possible position to respond to these new challenges.

Presented in collaboration with the Institute on Aging & Life Long Health, University of Victoria.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-05-10 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.

Film TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH 2017-05-10 19:00:00
Description

TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH

(David Lavallee, Canada, 2016, 82 min)

This documentary, narrated by Emma Thompson, follows concerned citizens living at the frontiers of extreme oil and gas extraction, bearing witness to a global crossroads. They call for human ingenuity to rebuild society at the end of the fossil fuel era.

The people we meet are uniquely positioned to watch this global crossroads unfold. For example, the mayor of an Inuit village in Canada’s high Arctic who is concerned that seismic testing for oil in the ocean is blowing up the eardrums of the animals that the Inuit hunt to survive. Or the environmental lawyer who goes on a journey to areas that produce energy for the tar sands of Alberta — he learns of the massive inputs of energy that have to be put into this resource — and the reasons why the second largest oil project in the world is economically unsustainable. Or the river conservationist in Utah who fights to protect the Colorado River from oil shale projects that would disturb its headwaters.

"To the Ends of the Earth" brings forward the voices of those who not only denounce the rise of extreme energy, but also envision the new world that is taking shape in its stead: a future beyond the resource pyramid, a post-growth economy.

"WONDERFULLY IN TOUCH WITH THIS HISTORICAL MOMENT" –Mark Achbar, The Corporation
