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

FRANTZ

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
