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.

Making Lives Invisible: Managing Refugees outside the West

The Syrian Crisis has brought into sharp focus the politics of refugee control and management particularly around the borders of Western countries. Less attention has been given to the ways in which refugee lives are regulated within non-Western contexts, even though the majority of refugees continue to reside in them. How do non-western countries, often financially strapped themselves, host thousands of guests for protracted periods of time? How do different levels of the state, from the local to the national, mediate the relationships between hosts and guests? I look at privatized responses to the Syrian crisis in the Middle East and how that renders the lives of refugees both precarious and informal- invisibilizing the visible, enabling simultaneously the flexibility and entrapment of refugees within host countries. In doing so, I examine the emergence of the figure of the refugee at the intersection between the global and the local.

Film PAULA 2017-05-17 19:00:00
Description

PAULA

Director: Christian Schwochow; Germany, 2016, 125 min; German & French with subtitles

Painting is an unacceptable vocation for a woman in provincial Germany in the year 1900, but budding artist Paula Becker (Carla Juri) is determined to make her own rules. The exuberant 24-year-old woman rejects the conventional and explores her unique style. She flourishes in the countryside art community of Worpswede, where she develops friendships with artist Clara Westhoff (Roxan Duran) and poet Rainer Maria Rilke (Joel Basman).

By marrying painter Otto Modersohn (Albrecht Schuch), she hopes to find a creative soulmate. He allows her to continue painting while assuming her duties as a good wife. Five years of domesticity take its toll on Paula's spirit, and she travels alone to modern Paris, where she studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and soon begins a romantic affair. Headstrong Paula is unstoppable: she embarks on a long-awaited period of creative fulfillment and self-realization... –Films We Like

Film Chasing Asylum - CARFMS 2017 Special Screening 2017-05-17 16:30:00
Description

SPECIAL FILM PRESENTATION

Chasing Asylum followed by a Q&A with Director Eva Orner

17 May - 4:30pm
David Lam Auditorium 

Open to the public

Chasing Asylum exposes the real impact of Australia’s offshore detention policies and explores how 'The Lucky Country' became a country where leaders choose detention over compassion and governments deprive the desperate of their basic human rights. The film features never before seen footage from inside Australia’s offshore detention camps, revealing the personal impact of sending those in search of a safe home to languish in limbo.  Chasing Asylum explores the mental, physical and fiscal consequences of Australia’s decision to lock away families in unsanitary conditions hidden from media scrutiny, destroying their lives under the pretext of saving them.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-05-17 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.
