Film "Taking My Parents to Burning Man" 2014-10-26 19:00:00
Description

TAKING MY PARENTS TO BURNING MAN

Directors: Joel Ashton McCarthy & Bryant H. Boesen   USA/Canada, 2014, 82 minutes

WINNER! AUDIENCE AWARD!

--Newport Beach Film Festival

--Sonoma International Film Festival

Run don’t walk to the theatre and go see this documentary. What makes this film so special is the authenticity that surrounds it; from the love the filmmakers obviously have for Burning Man, to the open and fresh-faced wonder you experience through the eyes of the parents. TMPTBM chronicles the adventures of Spry Bry, a DJ, entertainer, and party-monster extraordinaire. His parents are nice, good, decent people. They are supportive and loving, and not who you would typically think would be willing to take on Burning Man in front of a camera. But they do, and the way they and their lives change (for the better) is the main reason you need to go on the journey with them. By the end of this movie, you want to be their friends, their children, and their dinner guests. It’s the kind of movie experience we just don’t get enough of anymore. –Michelle Muldoon’s Blog

Lecture/Seminar Social Justice Studies Annual Lecture: Movements Undoing Border Imperialism, a talk by Harsha Walia 2014-10-27 19:00:00
Description

Harsha Walia is a social justice activist, writer, and popular educator. She is a co-founder of the Vancouver chapter of No One Is Illegal and author of the book Undoing Border Imperialism. Her  writings have appeared in over fifty journals, anthologies, and magazines. She has contributed essays to academic journals as well as chapters in the anthologies Power of Youth: Youth and community-led activism in Canada; Beautiful Trouble: A Toolbox for Revolution; and Organize! Building from the Local for Global Justice.

Naomi Klein says that “Walia has played a central role in building some of North America’s most innovative, diverse, and effective new movements. That this brilliant organizer and theorist has found time to share her wisdom in this book is a tremendous gift to us all." Indigenous rights activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, author of Indians of the Americas and Blood on the Border has called Walia’s book, "the first extended work on immigration that refuses to make First Nations sovereignty invisible." Vijay Prashad, author of The Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Third World, says that the book: “demonstrates that geography has certainly not ended, nor has the urge for people to stretch out our arms across borders to create our communities….This is both a manual and a memoir, a guide to the world and a guide to the organizer’s heart." Ashanti Alston, Black Panther elder and former political prisoner, writes: “This book is a breath of fresh air and offers an urgently needed movement-based praxis. Undoing Border Imperialism is too hot to be sitting on bookshelves; it will help make the revolution." (http://www.akpress.org/undoing-border-imperialism.html)

The population of White Sturgeon living in the lower Fraser River is currently listed as a threatened stock.

Film "The Innocents" 2014-10-28 19:00:00
Description

THE INNOCENTS
Director: Jack Clayton   UK, 1961, 100 min.

This literate, gothic ghost story was adapted by Truman Capote from Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw.  Deborah Kerr plays a governess hired to take care of two children who are possibly possessed by ghosts. Or is it the Victorian governess’ overactive imagination at work? Superb sound design and eerie, widescreen cinematography help create the most subtly scary ghosts you may ever see on screen.

Other The Comic Strippers 2014-10-29 19:30:00
Description

 A fictitious male stripper troupe (played by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians) perform a scared shirtless improv comedy show. These guys try to be sexy… it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating in between scenes they banter with the crowd and perform their hilarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance”. These guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh at them.

Women often say the most attractive thing about a man is his sense of humour - so ladies, these stripped down comedians are sure to make your head explode. As for all you men out there - don't worry, this is definitely a parody of male strippers. Some of the performers have what's called 'Comedy Bodies' - they will make you look good by comparison.

Semi undressed and completely unscripted, The Comic Strippers take off their shirts and take on your suggestions to create a whole new genre of comedy.

A show for all genders... 19+ Only

Lecture/Seminar Visiting Artist Series presents JEANNE RANDOLPH 2014-10-29 20:00:00
Description

Jeanne Randolph is one of Canada's foremost cultural theorists, having been writing, publishing and lecturing for over thirty years. She is the author of four books, all published by YYZ Books, Toronto: Psychoanalysis and Synchronized Swimming (1993); Symbolization and Its Discontents (1997), Why Stoics Box (2003), and The Ethics of Luxury (2008). She is also the author of countless published articles in Canada and the United States, and has contributed texts to numerous monographs and exhibition catalogues for artists including Fastwurms, Vera Frenkel, Robin Collyer, Elizabeth MacKenzie, Bernie Miller and Ian Carr-Harris. Her pivotal essay "The Amenable Object," (1983) remains required reading in many university art courses. Her writing is marked by an innovative approach to her chosen subject, a deeply ethical philosophical meandering that blends cultural theory and art criticism with personal history and a poetics of the imagination. A practicing psychoanalyst, Dr. Randolph is also known as engaging lecturer and performance artist whose unique vocal soliloquies--ranging from cat curating to architecture to boxing to Barbie Dolls to Wittgenstein--have been delivered in universities and galleries across Canada, as well as England, Australia and Spain. Randolph is the first and only writer in Canada to develop an Object Relations psychoanalytic theory as a medium for cultural criticism.

Lecture/Seminar Lunch & Learn: Language and transposition in film representations of the dislocated Chinese migrant 2014-10-29 12:30:00
Description

Io sono Li / Shun Li and the Poet (2011) directed by Andrea Segre (Italy.) Both films feature dislocated Chinese immigrants who speak in their native language and require their primary audiences to engage with significant quantities of spoken Chinese. She will argue that this polyglossic engagement has the potential to challenge conventional ways of understanding how we inhabit the world.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-10-29 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.

Other Arts, Spaces, Communities - AHVS Grad Student Symposium - Call for Papers 2014-10-31 08:00:00
Description

Visual Impetus XIII: Arts, Spaces, Communities

Graduate Student Research Symposium
Department of Art History and Visual Studies, University of Victoria

There is an increasing need for an understanding of visual culture not just in the arts but also across all disciplines. Often the examination of art places less emphasis on the effects of visual culture on its surrounding environment.  Yet so much knowledge can be gained by looking at how the locations, spaces, communities, and encompassing materials impact and engage with the arts.  Art has the power to define physical boundaries, reflect social values, bring people together, and even drive economic development.  The organizers of Visual Impetus XIV seek presentations that address visual culture, which have impacted or changed spaces and communities from around the world.

We welcome submissions from graduate students of all disciplines, as long as the content focuses on the arts or visual culture. Please send your paper proposal, consisting of a 250-word abstract and brief CV, to the symposium organizational committee.

Submissions must be made via email by December 1, 2014 to Committee Chair Regan Shrumm: rshrumm@gmail.com

Please include your full name, student status, contact information, and schedule availability with your submission. Presentations must not exceed fifteen minutes in length.

Visual Impetus XIV will take place on January 23rd and 24th at the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia.

Film "The Trip to ITALY" 2014-10-31 15:00:00
Description

THE TRIP TO ITALY
Director: Michael Winterbottom   UK, 2014, 109 min; PG

“A HILARIOUS ROMP THROUGH THE ITALIAN COUNTRYSIDE.” –HeyUGuys
Rob Brydon finally makes his pal/sparring partner Steve Coogan (“Philomena”) crack up, laughing, in “The Trip to Italy.”
The formula of “The Trip” is repeated — two actors, one semi-famous, the other less famous — off on a dining tour, riffing, debating, insulting and driving. But this time, they’re sent to Italy. Sunshine, local wines, pasta and winding roads along the Amalfi Coast. They’re hitting famous little hotels, lovely restaurants from Alba to Capri, the narrow streets of Rome to the Catacombs of Naples.
 As in “The Trip,” we’re treated to dueling Michael Caines, Brandos, Pacinos, and Hugh Grants….An altogether delightful vacation. –Movie Nation

Lecture/Seminar Great River Deltas as Keystone Arctic Ecosystems and Recent Changes in the Mackenzie Delta 2014-10-31 14:45:00
Description

Great River Deltas as Keystone Arctic Ecosystems and Recent Changes in the Mackenzie Delta

Lance Lesack
Professor, Departments of Geography and Biological Sciences,
Simon Fraser University

Recent results have revealed that winter air temperatures in the Mackenzie Delta of the western Canadian Arctic have warmed considerably since 1960.  However, warmer springs rather than warmer winters have been driving more rapid ice breakup in the Mackenzie River Delta because winter snow depths have also declined over the same period.  These results are counterintuitive to effects expected in the Arctic from an intensifying hydrological cycle, driven by warming temperatures.

This presentation will explore the importance of these findings for Mackenzie Delta and its role as a keystone ecosystem of the greater Arctic region.

Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

Curated in collaboration by Caroline Riedel, Justine Auben Drummond & Dr. Andrea Walsh

Film "The Trip to ITALY" 2014-11-01 15:00:00
Description

THE TRIP TO ITALY
Director: Michael Winterbottom   UK, 2014, 109 min; PG

“A HILARIOUS ROMP THROUGH THE ITALIAN COUNTRYSIDE.” –HeyUGuys
Rob Brydon finally makes his pal/sparring partner Steve Coogan (“Philomena”) crack up, laughing, in “The Trip to Italy.”
The formula of “The Trip” is repeated — two actors, one semi-famous, the other less famous — off on a dining tour, riffing, debating, insulting and driving. But this time, they’re sent to Italy. Sunshine, local wines, pasta and winding roads along the Amalfi Coast. They’re hitting famous little hotels, lovely restaurants from Alba to Capri, the narrow streets of Rome to the Catacombs of Naples.
 As in “The Trip,” we’re treated to dueling Michael Caines, Brandos, Pacinos, and Hugh Grants….An altogether delightful vacation. –Movie Nation

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-11-01 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.
