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.

Film PERSONAL SHOPPER 2017-05-20 19:00:00
Description

PERSONAL SHOPPER

Director: Olivier Assayas; France, 2016, 106 min; 14A

After “Clouds of Sils Maria,” director Olivier Assayas and star Kristen Stewart re-team for this gripping suspense tale about a young woman (Stewart) who makes ends meet by assisting a super model/fashion designer—until, that is, her psychic forays seem to put her in touch with her long-dead twin… --Vancouver International Film Festival

“AN INCREDIBLE WORK THAT WILL CONTINUE TO HAUNT YOU, LONG AFTER IT IS OVER.” –RogerEbert.com

A captivating, bizarre, tense, fervently preposterous and almost unclassifiable scary movie…Stewart’s best performance to date. Five stars! The Guardian

Kristen Stewart is excellent in this magnificently unconventional Paris-set ghost story. --Time Out London

Kristen Stewart continues to prove she’s a world-class actress. –The New Republic

It works in two realms: as an engrossing ghost story and a drama that addresses profound matters of life and death.Washington Post

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-05-20 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.
