Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-19 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 A MAN CALLED OVE 2017-03-19 15:00:00
Description

A MAN CALLED OVE

Director: Hannes Holm; Sweden, 2016, 116 min; Swedish with subtitles; PG

NOMINATED FOR 2 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST FOREIGN FILM!

ONE OF THE BIGGEST SWEDISH BOX OFFICE HITS OF ALL TIME!

A touching comic crowd-pleaser that may call for a tissue or two by the end, A Man Called Ove is an irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestselling novel. It’s a heartwarming tale about a stubborn, short-tempered man with steadfast beliefs, strict routines and the feeling that everyone around him is an idiot—and no reticence about telling them so. After new neighbours accidentally run over his mailbox, the cantankerous old git’s solitary world is shaken in ways he would never have imagined…

The action unfolds both in the present and in the past. Ultimately, it’s a friendship with the new neighbours——that gives Ove a new lease on life… Holm makes poignantly clear that being needed is an essential human desire, and life is so much sweeter when shared with others. –Variety

“A MORBIDLY FUNNY AND MOVING SUCCESS!” –RogerEbert.com

“IT’S HARD TO RESIST THE JOY OF THE FILM, the unbridled heart, and Ove’s tremendous, hilarious hatred for all the idiots of the world.” –The Playlist

Film Monster Trucks 2017-03-19 12:45:00
Description

MONSTER TRUCKS

Chris Wedge, USA/Canada, 2016, 105 min; PG - violence

A spry, spirited and delightful family film that has nothing to do with giant-wheeled vehicles piling on top of one another in indoor arenas. Instead, it’s an eco-fable, delivered with energy, winking mischief, unobtrusive effects and a skilled cast.

An oil company, personified by its chief executive (Rob Lowe), is drilling in North Dakota when it hits a water-table mother lode of biological activity. A geyser releases an entity that finds its way to the small-town high-school senior Tripp (Lucas Till). Working at a junkyard, Tripp bonds with the creature, which he names Creech. Creech, subsists on oil, and takes up residence in Tripp’s decrepit jalopy, sometimes impertinently seizing control. Antic effects-laden car chases in town and country ensue, leading to a tender climax. The director Chris Wedge (“Ice Age”) makes a nimble, largely live-action debut with this movie, whose heart, humor and gentle conscience keep it humming. –The New York Times

Lecture/Seminar WordsThaw Writers Festival: Master Class with Joanne Arnott 2017-03-19 13:30:00
Description

As part of The Malahat Review's annual literary symposium, WordsThaw Writers Festival (March 16 to 19 at UVic), we're offering a special workshop with Canadian writer, Joanne Arnott. Space is limited to 15, so buy early from our website.

"Oral + Text" - An interactive writing workshop exploring embodiment and breath as bases for writing, editing and performance. We will consider oral and literary text traditions, and ourselves as points of confluence and congruence.

One way to visualize oppression and mistreatment is as a struggle for public space, where some voices and histories are suppressed and marginalized, while others are given light, oxygen, attention, elevation: a central and a solid platform. Both individually and collectively, impacts of trauma can have a silencing effect, where survival can seem to depend upon silence.  Together these influences sow confusion and uncertainty.

Indigenous cultural practices often return us to the heartbeat and the breath as reflections of the primordial organization of life, echoing seasonal and generational change within the simplicity of our direct human experiences. As cultural workers, it is our call to be attentive to the universe in ways that honour the past and the future, while remaining connected to and rooted in the present moment unfolding.

Early registrants may submit samples of work (1-3 pages) for discussion. All participants come prepared to write and to share words.
