Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Film "Regarding SUSAN SONTAG" 2014-12-14 19:00:00
Description

REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG

Director: Nancy Kates; USA, 2014, 100 minutes

On Photography, "Notes on Camp," Illness as Metaphor, Against Interpretation—Susan Sontag’s contributions to the intellectual zeitgeist of the 1960s, 70s and 80s is beyond reproach for its seriousness of purpose and wide-ranging influence. And while it might seem that that very seriousness would make Sontag less than happy with Nancy Kates’ intimate portrait of the writer—a portrait that delves into Sontag’s personal life as much as it surveys her critical and literary accomplishments—even the famously analytical intellectual would be hard-pressed not to see the value in transforming an icon into a human being, made of flesh and blood. Kates does this marvellously well, with the result being that Sontag comes into sharp focus, perhaps for the first time. –Vancouver International Film Festival

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-12-16 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated by lessLIE

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street

In this exhibition the theme of perpetuation unifies the work of five contemporary Coast Salish artists who live and work in this region. The word perpetuation is meant to suggest a continuum of ideas and processes, which come from distinctive traditions that have existed over millennia. Perpetuation also infers some of the challenges that contemporary Coast Salish artists continue to face in the contexts of colonialism and assimilation as well as the dominance of other Indigenous traditions, which were often favoured by the art world, in both commercial and educational contexts. It is only in the last three decades that Coast Salish art has become more readily recognized by a wider audience as distinct from other Northwest Coast traditions.

This exhibition presents a wide range of art forms and ideas, and visitors will gain a better understanding of the cultural and stylistic elements that unify and inspire these contemporary artists in their own artistic practices. Artists featured are Maynard Johnny Jr., lessLIE, John Marston, Susan Point and Dylan Thomas.

Lecture/Seminar The Psychology & Neuroscience of Gambling Addiction 2014-12-16 10:30:00
Description

In this presentation, Dr. Luke Clark, Director of the Centre for Gambling Research at UBC, will consider the modern conceptualisation of pathological gambling (or Gambling Disorder) as a behavioural addiction. After briefly reviewing diagnosis and prevalence, the talk will focus on the distorted styles of thinking that occur during gambling, and their neurobiological basis in terms of brain chemistry and the brain reward system. 

Dr. Luke Clark's research focuses on the psychological and neural mechanisms that underlie gambling behaviour, and how these processes are altered in disordered gambling.
Before moving to the Department of Psychology at UBC, he was a Senior Lecturer at University of Cambridge, U.K. He has published over 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals, and serves on the editorial board for Addiction, International Gambling Studies, and the Journal of Gambling Studies.

Film "BOYHOOD" 2014-12-17 19:00:00
Description

Back by popular demand!

BOYHOOD

Director: Richard Linklater   USA, 2014, 166 min; PG

Cast: Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater, Ethan Hawke

100% on Metacritic!  99% on Rotten Tomatoes!

Its plot is the picture of simplicity: a boy grows up. But it is a film of deceiving depth, working as it does to unearth universal truths in the minutia of everyday life. A masterpiece of independent filmmaking, "Boyhood" is nothing short of an emotional epic, one that is moving and entirely unforgettable. Richard Linklater's decidedly unconventional approach is its masterstroke. Linklater shot "Boyhood" over 12 years. When we first meet the film's main character -- Mason, played by Ellar Coltrane -- he is 5 years old and by the time the film ends, Mason is heading off to college. In the meantime, we watch Mason -- and Coltrane -- grow up before our eyes, sprouting from kindergartener to clueless adolescent to brooding teen and, finally, to young man. -- New Orleans Times-Picayune

 “Not just a great movie, it's a landmark achievement in film.” –Arizona Republic

“’Boyhood’ isn’t just a masterpiece. It’s a miracle.” –Washington Post

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I.

These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Cast: Emma Stone, Colin Firth, Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Jacki Weaver

A lighthearted romance set in 1920s Germany and France. Our hero, Stanley (Colin Firth, amusingly pompous), is a popular stage magician and lifetime skeptic conscripted by a colleague to travel to a lush Côte d’Azur estate. His task is to debunk a self-proclaimed psychic named Sophie (Emma Stone, strong-willed and alluring), who appears to be bilking a rich old widow out of every cent. Yet try as Stanley might, he’s unable to uncover her trickery, and with each new “miracle” she performs, he falls deeper and deeper in love. It’s a simple premise that Woody Allen complicates with an illusionist’s expertise. “Magic” casts a lovely, lingering spell. --Time Out New York

Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2014-12-18 All Day
Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-12-18 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated by lessLIE

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street

In this exhibition the theme of perpetuation unifies the work of five contemporary Coast Salish artists who live and work in this region. The word perpetuation is meant to suggest a continuum of ideas and processes, which come from distinctive traditions that have existed over millennia. Perpetuation also infers some of the challenges that contemporary Coast Salish artists continue to face in the contexts of colonialism and assimilation as well as the dominance of other Indigenous traditions, which were often favoured by the art world, in both commercial and educational contexts. It is only in the last three decades that Coast Salish art has become more readily recognized by a wider audience as distinct from other Northwest Coast traditions.

This exhibition presents a wide range of art forms and ideas, and visitors will gain a better understanding of the cultural and stylistic elements that unify and inspire these contemporary artists in their own artistic practices. Artists featured are Maynard Johnny Jr., lessLIE, John Marston, Susan Point and Dylan Thomas.

LOVE ACTUALLY

Richard Curtis   (UK/USA, 2003, 135 min; Blu-ray; 14A)

The ultimate British romantic comedy featuring a sterling all-star cast including Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Bill Nighy, Keira Knightley, and Rowan Atkinson.  A movie as sweetly munchable as a Christmas cookie, it’s an ensemble comedy and it makes a lot of romantics feel very, very good; watching it. --Entertainment Weekly
