Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-05-03 10:00

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 FRANTZ 2017-05-03 19:00:00


Director: François Ozon; France/Germany, 2016,114 min; French/German with subtitles; PG

Set in Germany and France in the immediate aftermath of the First World War, ‘Frantz’ recalls the mourning period as seen through the eyes of the war's "lost generation": Anna (Paula Beer), a bereft young German woman whose fiancé, Frantz, was killed during trench warfare, and Adrien (Pierre Niney), a French veteran of the war who shows up mysteriously in her town, placing flowers on Frantz's grave.

Adrien's presence is met with resistance by the small community, yet Anna gradually gets closer to the handsome and melancholy young man….

It's a rare beauty, this odd-duck of a period piece from the great French director François Ozon.”Rolling Stone

Lecture/Seminar People in Place: The Worldview We Need 2017-05-03 19:30:00

John Ralston Saul: Renowned essayist visits Victoria for public talk on ethnoecology and resurgence

Indigenous knowledge, resurgence and the importance of place are themes that will be touched upon by award-winning essayist and novelist John Ralston Saul on May 3 at the University of Victoria in his talk, “People in Place: The Worldview We Need.”

Ralston Saul’s works have been translated into 28 languages in 37 countries. The latest, The Comeback (Le Grand Retour), is an examination of the resurgence to power of Indigenous peoples in Canada.

This keynote address is part of the four-day Indigenous Peoples' Land Rights and the Roles of Ethnoecology and Ethnobotany Symposium at UVic (now full to capacity), sponsored by the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation and hosted by UVic’s School of Environmental Studies. The symposium is one of four UVic signature series events to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary.

UVic ethnobotanist and ethnoecologist Nancy Turner, who has devoted her career to understanding and communicating the crucial role that plants play in Indigenous cultures and languages, is leading the symposium as part of her 2016 Pierre Elliott Trudeau Fellowship. She played a key role in bringing Ralston Saul to Victoria. (Read more on Turner’s legacy)


What: “People in Place: The Worldview We Need” with John Ralston Saul

When: Wednesday, May 3 from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

Where: Room A144 (David Lam Auditorium), MacLaurin Building, UVic
