Exhibit One Way or Another - Megan Dickie 2017-01-15 All Day
Description

One Way or Another highlights the failure involved in the quest for excellence. The project originated with a trilogy of videos that use classic video games as a platform to investigate human struggle. Within this trilogy a character blunders through a series of obstacles that constantly defy her. These impediments are indicative of forms and concepts that drive my artistic practice: logic inspired, insurmountable forms that are turned into absurd objects of physical comedy. The structures from the videos have been brought to life through sculptures that focus on endless patterns. Together, the sculptures and videos create an immersive environment of humorous persistence. Questioning the value of human progress and highlighting the struggle for bigger, better and more.

 

Megan Dickie is an artist who works in the mediums of sculpture, video and printmaking. Her artistic research focuses on the seductive tension that exists between reason and play. Dickie explores this concept by subverting systems and structures with critically deployed humour.

 

Megan Dickie has exhibited her work across Canada with exhibitions at Oxygen Art Centre (Nelson), Latitude 53 (Edmonton), Stride (Calgary), Grunt Gallery, (Vancouver) BC, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Kenderdine Art Gallery (Saskatoon), Artcite Inc. (Windsor) and Artspace (Peterborough) to name just a few. Dickie has received numerous grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council. Her BFA in printmaking was obtained from the University of Calgary in 1997 and she received a MFA in sculpture from the University of Saskatchewan in 2002.  Megan Dickie currently resides in Victoria, BC and is an Assistant Professor of Visual Art at the University of Victoria.

Film Doctor STRANGE 2017-01-15 15:00:00
Description

DOCTOR STRANGE

Director: Scott Derrickson, USA, 2016, 115 min; PG – violence, coarse language

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen

Big. Fun. How big is this latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? It’s gargantuan. Geometric patterns glide and morph and bedazzle the eye. Time is warped. Space is made malleable. Meet Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), once an arrogant brain surgeon until his hands are shattered in a terrible car wreck. A trip to Kathmandu in a desperate search for some kind of miracle spiritual cure puts him in contact with the Ancient One, a bald sorceress played by Tilda Swinton who by turns torments and trains him in the arcane ways of the mystic arts. Magic, produced by thousands of computers, results. The trip’s the trip here, and it’s well worth taking. –Seattle Times

Film WE CAN'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE 2017-01-16 19:00:00
Description

Special Event!  Indigenous Governance will host a panel discussion after the Jan. 16 screening.  Regular Cinecenta prices.

WE CAN’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE

Alanis Obomsawin is a member of the Abenaki Nation and hailed by POV Magazine as "the most notable Indigenous director in the world." Her latest powerful documentary chronicles the landmark Supreme Court of Canada case, which argued that First Nations children were being systemically discriminated against. This case shows how far we have yet to go as a nation in accepting the idea of Truth and Reconciliation. The case drags on for nearly nine years. In January 2016, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal finally rules that the Government of Canada has indeed discriminated against indigenous children and orders it to reform its policies accordingly.  –Vancouver International Film Festival    

Taking the audience right into the courtrooms, as if we are the invisible jury, Obomsawin’s film crackles with the tension of a gripping legal drama while never losing sight of the stakes at play. –Cinema Axis

Lecture/Seminar ANTH Grad Colloquium: Duan Wei Hou Research Project: Fieldwork with Tibetan Macaques 2017-01-16 11:30:00
Description

GRADUATE COLLOQUIUM DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

Duan Wei Hou Research Project: Fieldwork with Tibetan Macaques

Lori K. Sheeran
Director, Primate Behavior and Ecology Program
Professor, Department of Anthropology and Museum Studies
Central Washington University

Monday, January 16th, 2017
11:30 am – 12:50 pm
Cornett Building, Room A225


Our international team of primatologists has studied one Tibetan macaque population at the Valley of the Wild Monkeys tourist site in Huangshan, China for more than 30 years. In the 1990s, park staff habituated the monkeys for tourism, and since then, they have lived in close human contact during the summer months, but with little human influence during the winter. Tibetan (and other) macaques live in female-philopatric, matrilineally-structured groups. Our team has recently explored Tibetan macaque affiliative behaviors such as grooming, “bridging,” and social movements. Our recent analysis of the population’s microbiome demonstrates how contact with humans, the local ecology, and patterns of affiliation influence the flora and fauna of the Tibetan macaque gut. We have also studied the influence tourism has on affiliative and other behaviors in this group, and we are currently working to mitigate negative impacts of inter-species interaction while improving educational outcomes for site visitors.

EVERYONE WELCOME.

Lecture/Seminar Bavarian Spring Flowers 2017-01-17 19:30:00
Description

Victoria Natural History Society: BOTANY NIGHT
 
On a 2015 trip to southern Germany, Hans Roemer re-visited the spring flowers of his childhood. In just two weeks he was lucky to encounter and photograph nearly the full complement of attractive native plants that flower in the deciduous forest, on dry hillsides and in wet meadows. He even managed to capture the first flush of flowers on alpine pastures. Hans will explain the ecological settings within which these plants occur and have survived through the centuries. Many of the species and genera will be familiar to the audience from gardens or, if they grew up in the UK or Europe, from their own experience. Others will be of interest as additional members of widespread plant families.

Description

<span style="\\&quot;color:" rgb(66,="" 66,="" 66);="" font-family:="" sans-serif;="" font-size:="" 12.6px;\\"="">The Forest Carbon Management Project of the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) is quantifying the potential contribution of British Columbia’s forest sector to climate change mitigation. The project is addressing three related research themes: (1) the biophysical mitigation potential including costs and socio-economic indicators, (2) the impacts of climate change on forest dynamics and the design of climate change mitigation strategies that are informed by those anticipated impacts, and (3) the policy, institutional and financing aspects of the implementation of mitigation strategies. The project involves experts from BC Universities, the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations, and the Canadian Forest Service.

The project originated with a trilogy of videos that use classic video games as a platform to investigate human struggle. Within this trilogy a character blunders through a series of obstacles that constantly defy her. These impediments are indicative of forms and concepts that drive my artistic practice: logic inspired, insurmountable forms that are turned into absurd objects of physical comedy. The structures from the videos have been brought to life through sculptures that focus on endless patterns. Together, the sculptures and videos create an immersive environment of humorous persistence. Questioning the value of human progress and highlighting the struggle for bigger, better and more.

 

Megan Dickie is an artist who works in the mediums of sculpture, video and printmaking. Her artistic research focuses on the seductive tension that exists between reason and play. Dickie explores this concept by subverting systems and structures with critically deployed humour.

 

Megan Dickie has exhibited her work across Canada with exhibitions at Oxygen Art Centre (Nelson), Latitude 53 (Edmonton), Stride (Calgary), Grunt Gallery, (Vancouver) BC, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Kenderdine Art Gallery (Saskatoon), Artcite Inc. (Windsor) and Artspace (Peterborough) to name just a few. Dickie has received numerous grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council. Her BFA in printmaking was obtained from the University of Calgary in 1997 and she received a MFA in sculpture from the University of Saskatchewan in 2002.  Megan Dickie currently resides in Victoria, BC and is an Assistant Professor of Visual Art at the University of Victoria.

Film Two Lovers and a Bear 2017-01-18 19:00:00
Description

TWO LOVERS AND A BEAR

Director: Kim Nguyen, Canada, 2016, 96 min; 14A

A hypnotic romance about two star-crossed lovers who find that the icy expanses of the Arctic offer little refuge from their pasts. Lucy (Tatiana Maslany, ‘Orphan Black’) and Roman (Dane DeHaan, ‘Life’) are deeply and claustrophobically in love, in their remote town of Apex in Nunavut. But when Lucy is offered a scholarship, it plunges Roman into a deep depression. He finally accedes to her pleas that they spend time together before her imminent departure. Reunited, the couple sets out on one last voyage through the uncharted Arctic wilderness, where it soon becomes clear that Lucy has equally debilitating demons of her own. Director Nguyen transforms his story's unforgiving yet visually stunning environment into a space both viscerally realistic and metaphorical. –Toronto International Film Festival

Set in Apex, and shot in and around Iqaluit, the film portrays the Arctic as a shiftless frontier of cultural unrest. –Maclean’s

“A cold and enigmatic film that envelops the viewer like a big ghostly bear hug.” ---Cinemablographer

This year, Biró has been composing a large-scale musical composition based on Baruch Spinoza's philosophical work, Ethica. Exploring concepts of “space and place,” the composition employs text from Ethica and deals with questions of one’s religious place in the global world. In this lecture, he will discuss the work and life of Baruch Spinoza and how, in his compositional work, Biró ventures to explore philosophical and religious domains via musical analogy. He will show examples of previous and ongoing creative output.

Film Hacksaw Ridge 2017-01-20 15:00:00
Description

HACKSAW RIDGE

Director: Mel Gibson, USA, 2016, 140 min; 14A – frequent violence

BEST ACTOR NOMINEE – ANDREW GARFIELD

--Golden Globes

--Screen Actors Guild

The extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss [Andrew Garfield] who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.

“A war movie about peace….a film about family, faith, love and forgiveness all put the test in an arena of violent conflict – a movie you don't want to miss.” --Rolling Stone

“As repellent a figure as many may still find Gibson, I have to report he’s absolutely hit ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ out of the park.”The Guardian

Lecture/Seminar Victoria Colloquium: Brenna Bhandar (University of London) 2017-01-20 14:30:00
Description

Professor Bhandar’s current research project explores the relationship between racial formations and modern property law in settler colonial contexts. She examines articulations of race and ownership that emerge through the appropriation of Indigenous lands, drawing on a combination of critical theory, archival sources, and interviews in Canada, Australia and Israel/Palestine.

Professor Bhandar is co-editor (with Jon Goldberg-Hiller) of the book Plastic Materialities: Legality, Politics and Metamorphosis in the work of Catherine Malabou (Duke University Press, 2015). The contributions in this volume assess the political and philosophical implications of Malabou's innovative combination of poststructuralism and neuroscience across the disciplines of legal theory, sociology, literature and philosophy.152

She is also co-editor of a special issue of Darkmatter Journal, "Reflections on Dispossession: Critical Feminisms" (2016, with Davina Bhandar). This collection traces a path for contemporary critiques of neoliberal capitalism and colonial dispossession. The authors show the compelling need for complex strategies and tools to evaluate the interlocking or intersectional practices of dispossession, and their particular effects on racialised, Indigenous, sexualized, and gendered subjects.

Lastly, Professor Bhandar is co-editor of the Routledge Book Series, Law and the Post-Colonial: Ethics, Politics & Economy, and has served on the editorial board of Feminist Legal Studies and the International Advisory Board of the Law and Society Review.

Exhibit One Way or Another - Megan Dickie 2017-01-20 All Day
Description

One Way or Another highlights the failure involved in the quest for excellence. The project originated with a trilogy of videos that use classic video games as a platform to investigate human struggle. Within this trilogy a character blunders through a series of obstacles that constantly defy her. These impediments are indicative of forms and concepts that drive my artistic practice: logic inspired, insurmountable forms that are turned into absurd objects of physical comedy. The structures from the videos have been brought to life through sculptures that focus on endless patterns. Together, the sculptures and videos create an immersive environment of humorous persistence. Questioning the value of human progress and highlighting the struggle for bigger, better and more.

 

Megan Dickie is an artist who works in the mediums of sculpture, video and printmaking. Her artistic research focuses on the seductive tension that exists between reason and play. Dickie explores this concept by subverting systems and structures with critically deployed humour.

 

Megan Dickie has exhibited her work across Canada with exhibitions at Oxygen Art Centre (Nelson), Latitude 53 (Edmonton), Stride (Calgary), Grunt Gallery, (Vancouver) BC, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Kenderdine Art Gallery (Saskatoon), Artcite Inc. (Windsor) and Artspace (Peterborough) to name just a few. Dickie has received numerous grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council. Her BFA in printmaking was obtained from the University of Calgary in 1997 and she received a MFA in sculpture from the University of Saskatchewan in 2002.  Megan Dickie currently resides in Victoria, BC and is an Assistant Professor of Visual Art at the University of Victoria.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-01-21 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.

Exhibit One Way or Another - Megan Dickie 2017-01-21 All Day
Description

One Way or Another highlights the failure involved in the quest for excellence. The project originated with a trilogy of videos that use classic video games as a platform to investigate human struggle. Within this trilogy a character blunders through a series of obstacles that constantly defy her. These impediments are indicative of forms and concepts that drive my artistic practice: logic inspired, insurmountable forms that are turned into absurd objects of physical comedy. The structures from the videos have been brought to life through sculptures that focus on endless patterns. Together, the sculptures and videos create an immersive environment of humorous persistence. Questioning the value of human progress and highlighting the struggle for bigger, better and more.

 

Megan Dickie is an artist who works in the mediums of sculpture, video and printmaking. Her artistic research focuses on the seductive tension that exists between reason and play. Dickie explores this concept by subverting systems and structures with critically deployed humour.

 

Megan Dickie has exhibited her work across Canada with exhibitions at Oxygen Art Centre (Nelson), Latitude 53 (Edmonton), Stride (Calgary), Grunt Gallery, (Vancouver) BC, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Kenderdine Art Gallery (Saskatoon), Artcite Inc. (Windsor) and Artspace (Peterborough) to name just a few. Dickie has received numerous grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council. Her BFA in printmaking was obtained from the University of Calgary in 1997 and she received a MFA in sculpture from the University of Saskatchewan in 2002.  Megan Dickie currently resides in Victoria, BC and is an Assistant Professor of Visual Art at the University of Victoria.

Film Hacksaw Ridge 2017-01-21 15:00:00
Description

HACKSAW RIDGE

Director: Mel Gibson, USA, 2016, 140 min; 14A – frequent violence

BEST ACTOR NOMINEE – ANDREW GARFIELD

--Golden Globes

--Screen Actors Guild

The extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss [Andrew Garfield] who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.

“A war movie about peace….a film about family, faith, love and forgiveness all put the test in an arena of violent conflict – a movie you don't want to miss.” --Rolling Stone

“As repellent a figure as many may still find Gibson, I have to report he’s absolutely hit ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ out of the park.”The Guardian
