Exhibit Margaret Peterson: A Search In Rhythm 2014-07-27 All Day
Description

A Search In Rhythm features the artworks and personal papers of the groundbreaking mid-20th century abstract painter, Margaret Peterson (1903-1997). Peterson had a big vision: to search for the spiritual realm, in rhythm with the artistic aims of Indigenous peoples across the world. Peterson's main medium was egg tempera on plywood panels—striking in size, colour, and form. By showcasing Peterson's possessions, photographs, and writing about her work alongside the works themselves, her vision and search is more fully realized. This is the first in an upcoming series of exhibitions presenting the University of Victoria's Artist Archives and Legacy Art Galleries joint holdings which demonstrates the rich research potential of this recently acquired material.

Film "TRACKS" 2014-07-27 19:00:00
Description

TRACKS

Director: John Curran   Australia, 2013, 112 minutes

Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Adam Driver, Rainer Bock

“A STIRRING AND BEAUTIFULLY SHOT ACCOUNT OF THE AUTHOR ROBYN DAVIDSON’S REAL-LIFE JOURNEY BY CAMEL ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK.” --Independent

A journey of arduous physical challenges and incalculable spiritual rewards is evocatively rendered in this superb adaptation. Robyn Davidson’s remarkable journey in 1977 across 1,700 miles of Australian desert to the Indian Ocean with four camels and a dog is given a richly sensorial screen treatment. Alternately haunting, inspiring and dreamily meditative, this is a visually majestic film of transfixing moods and textures. Its stealth-like emotional charge is fueled by unerring work from Mia Wasikowska, her affecting performance grounded in the fortitude and determination essential to such an undertaking, at the same time subtly keeping an open window to her character’s fragility. –The Hollywood Reporter

“TRACKS WILL LEAD YOU TO A PLACE OF QUIET WONDER.”  –The Telegraph

Film Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" 2014-07-28 19:00:00
Description

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL

Director: Wes Anderson   USA, 2014, 100 min; 14A

Cast: Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartman, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson

“WONDERFUL!” –The Telegraph

“FANCIFUL!” –Salon.com

“MARVELOUS!” –Entertainment Weekly

“NOTHING SHORT OF AN ENCHANTMENT!” –Austin Chronicle

An elaborate and delightful work of tragicomic confectionery set at an imaginary resort in an imaginary country that depicts the interwar years in Europe largely as a set of high-society hijinks out of 1930s Hollywood comedies. Anderson’s cast features one of Ralph Fiennes’ best performances and is loaded with peculiar delights, including cameos by Bill Murray and Owen Wilson. His script is loaded with zingers and divided into chapters with on-screen titles. This is one of Anderson’s funniest and most fanciful movies, but perversely enough it may also be his most serious, most tragic and most shadowed by history, shot through with an overwhelming sense of loss. –Salon.com

Film "The Lunchbox" 2014-07-29 19:00:00
Description

THE LUNCHBOX

Director: Ritesh Batra  

India, 2013, 104 min; Hindi & English with subtitles

Some romances are written in the stars. Others, it would seem, can be chalked up to a misread street map. When a lunchbox prepared by Ila (Nimrat Kaur) for her emotionally distant husband is mistakenly delivered to Saajan (the wonderful Irrfan Khan, Life of Pi), the under-appreciated Mumbai housewife and lonely accountant strike up an intimate correspondence. The tinges of disappointment and regret that punctuate these missives reflect the enticing soulfulness of Ritesh Batra’s debut. In turn, there’s exhilaration to be had watching these characters realize that their futures are unwritten. But will they put down their pens and overcome the obstacles keeping them from one another? –Vancouver International Film Festival

“This warm and affectionate human comedy from India is charming in a delicate and unforced way.” –Los Angeles Times

 “A wistful, elegant love story.”Screen

Exhibit Epiphany: Highlights from the Legacy Permanent Collection 2014-07-30 10:00
Description

May 1 to August 9, 2014

Curated by Mary Jo Hughes.

An epiphany in its broadest sense is the experience of sudden realization or insight. Through an epiphany, our world broadens and new understandings and ideas are unlocked. Indeed, this widening of perspective remains the ultimate goal for most artists. The experience of epiphany is what the exhibition aims to engender in viewers through highlights from the extensive permanent collection held by the University of Victoria's Legacy Art Galleries. It is intended that each piece will offer a unique insight or a fresh experience that was not entirely expected. Artists in the exhibition include, Robert Davidson, Emily Carr, Norval Morrisseau, Lawren Harris, Frederick Varley, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Myfannwy Pavelic, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jack Shadbolt, among others.

Film talking heads "Stop Making Sense" 2014-07-30 19:10:00
Description

STOP MAKING SENSE

Director: Jonathan Demme   USA, 1984, 88 minutes

To celebrate its 30th anniversary, this essential concert film receives a first-ever digital release in a limited theatrical run! 

Arguably the best live document of any band, ever, “Stop Making Sense” (also released as a live album) is a unique interpretation of the band at their creative peak, with director Jonathan Demme keeping the focus directly on the band, including David Byrne in his now-iconic big suit. The result is euphoric. Songs include “Psycho Killer,” “Burning Down the House,” “Once in a Lifetime,” “This Must Be the Place (Naïve Melody).”

“GREATEST CONCERT MOVIE EVER!” –Rolling Stone

“Has there ever been a live concert film as vibrant or as brilliantly realized?” –San Francisco Chronicle

They will then be joined by Arthur Rowe, piano, in Antonin Dvorak's piano quintet.

Film talking heads "Stop Making Sense" 2014-07-31 19:10:00
Description

STOP MAKING SENSE

Director: Jonathan Demme   USA, 1984, 88 minutes

To celebrate its 30th anniversary, this essential concert film receives a first-ever digital release in a limited theatrical run! 

Arguably the best live document of any band, ever, “Stop Making Sense” (also released as a live album) is a unique interpretation of the band at their creative peak, with director Jonathan Demme keeping the focus directly on the band, including David Byrne in his now-iconic big suit. The result is euphoric. Songs include “Psycho Killer,” “Burning Down the House,” “Once in a Lifetime,” “This Must Be the Place (Naïve Melody).”

“GREATEST CONCERT MOVIE EVER!” –Rolling Stone

“Has there ever been a live concert film as vibrant or as brilliantly realized?” –San Francisco Chronicle

Exhibit Margaret Peterson: A Search In Rhythm 2014-08-01 All Day
Description

A Search In Rhythm features the artworks and personal papers of the groundbreaking mid-20th century abstract painter, Margaret Peterson (1903-1997). Peterson had a big vision: to search for the spiritual realm, in rhythm with the artistic aims of Indigenous peoples across the world. Peterson's main medium was egg tempera on plywood panels—striking in size, colour, and form. By showcasing Peterson's possessions, photographs, and writing about her work alongside the works themselves, her vision and search is more fully realized. This is the first in an upcoming series of exhibitions presenting the University of Victoria's Artist Archives and Legacy Art Galleries joint holdings which demonstrates the rich research potential of this recently acquired material.

Exhibit Epiphany: Highlights from the Legacy Permanent Collection 2014-08-01 10:00
Description

May 1 to August 9, 2014

Curated by Mary Jo Hughes.


An epiphany in its broadest sense is the experience of sudden realization or insight. Through an epiphany, our world broadens and new understandings and ideas are unlocked. Indeed, this widening of perspective remains the ultimate goal for most artists. The experience of epiphany is what the exhibition aims to engender in viewers through highlights from the extensive permanent collection held by the University of Victoria's Legacy Art Galleries. It is intended that each piece will offer a unique insight or a fresh experience that was not entirely expected. Artists in the exhibition include, Robert Davidson, Emily Carr, Norval Morrisseau, Lawren Harris, Frederick Varley, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Myfannwy Pavelic, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jack Shadbolt, among others.

Film "The Immigrant" starring Marion Cotillard 2014-08-01 19:00:00
Description

THE IMMIGRANT

Director: James Gray   USA, 2014, 118 minutes; PG

Cast: Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix, Jeremy Renner

“FIVE STARS!” –Time Out New York

Marion Cotillard has made her share of unremarkable films. But when the French star, who won the Academy Award for her Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, gets it right, the result is magic. Her Piaf was that. So was the whale trainer in Rust and Bone. In the title role of The Immigrant, as Ewa, a destitute Pole who arrives in New York City in 1921 in search of the American Dream, she once again astounds.

Ewa is plucked from the deportation line by Bruno Weiss (Joaquin Phoenix), who hands the guard a few bills to facilitate Ewa's hasty transfer to a Manhattan-bound boat. In fact, Bruno runs a bevy of bawdy women in a burlesque hall, offering their supplemental services to men willing to pay. He keeps his "little doves" several flights up in the tenement where he lives. Phoenix plays this guy with a kind of unpredictable, flummoxed charm. He can be wily and confident one minute, needy and pathetic the next.

Of course, Bruno falls in love with Ewa. And of course, there is a rival: Emil, also known as Orlando the Magician, a glinty-eyed prestidigitator (watch him levitate!) played with charisma and a pencil-thin mustache by Jeremy Renner. Bruno and Emil have a long history - in fact, they are cousins.

Cotillard gives Ewa an inner life, full of ferocity, vulnerability, cunning. In her peacock feathers and her cheap flapper's jewelry, or in a dark woolen shawl, huddled in the night, this woman is absolutely wondrous, absolutely real. –Philadelphia Inquirer
