Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-05-14 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.

Conference CARFMS17 - Forgotten Corridors: Global Displacement & the Politics of Engagement 2017-05-15 09:00:00
Description

Forgotten Corridors: Global Displacement & the Politics of Engagement

15 - 18 May
University of Victoria

10th Annual Conference of the Canadian Association for Refugee and Forced Migration Studies

Never before in modern history have so many people been forced to leave their homes and journey abroad for temporary or permanent settlement. According to the UNHCR Mid-Term June 2015 report, “by the end of 2015, 65.3 million individuals were forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, generalized violence or human rights violations.”

Much attention in the west has been directed at the steady flow of refugees leaving war-torn countries to end up on the shores of the Mediterranean. However, many of the displaced remain neglected or forgotten; travelling little watched corridors en route to temporary destinations in detention centers, refugee camps, or makeshift housing. These hierarchies of human mobility hide the precarious nature of the lives of millions of migrants, demanding attention and engagement to make meaningful transformations.

The Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives at the University of Victoria will host the tenth annual CARFMS conference from May 15th to 18th, 2017 in beautiful Victoria, BC. Join researchers, policy makers and activists from diverse disciplines and regions to discuss the parameters of global displacement, especially the experiences of those taking routes less traveled.

Lecture/Seminar Sheila Watt-Cloutier - CARFMS17 Keynote Presentation 2017-05-15 19:30:00
Description

Sheila Watt-Cloutier,
Environmental, Cultural and Human Rights Advocate

15 May - 7:30pm
David Lam Auditorium 
CARFMS Keynote Presentation

Open to the public - no registration required for keynote presentations

We must now speak environment, economy, foreign policy, health and human rights in the same breath

In this truly globe-spanning talk, Watt-Cloutier provides a clear, meaningful, and comprehensive understanding of the way these issues are interconnected, and what it means for the future of our planet. Speaking on leadership, she shows how your organization fits into the grand scheme of things, and organizations can fulfill their mandate by understanding how the local connects to the global, and vice versa. 

With a focus on solutions, Watt-Cloutier brings the realities of the Arctic―where Inuit today face profound challenges to their environment, their economy, their health and their cultural well-being―to light. The challenges they face are clearly connected to the industries we support, the disposable world we have become, and the non-sustaining policies we create. Because her Inuit culture faces the most extreme challenges of globalization, Watt-Cloutier speaks from firsthand experience, and couples that with her extensive experiences as a global leader.

Drawing upon her ancient culture, and speaking from a position of strength, not victimhood, she helps audiences find common ground. Her Arctic voice--not as far away as we might imagine--enlightens and inspires. With inclusive good will, it bridges some extremely divided gaps around the world.

Film I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO 2017-05-15 19:00:00
Description

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO

Director: Raoul Peck, France/USA, 2016, 95 minutes

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

In one of the most courageous and assertive documentaries of the year, Raoul Peck picks up on an unfinished manuscript by James Baldwin to examine the issue of race in America through the (too-short) lives of Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, and Malcolm X. Connecting these martyrs of the Civil Rights movement with Black Lives Matter, Peck has produced a searing work that cuts to the very heart of American identity. –Vancouver International Film Festival

“FIVE STARS!  One of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made.”The Guardian

“A MESMERIZING CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE.” --Los Angeles Times

“THE RARE MOVIE THAT MIGHT BE CALLED A SPIRITUAL DOCUMENTARY.” --Variety

Lecture/Seminar "Dying to Live" Lansdowne Lecture 2017-05-16 19:30:00
Description

Dr. Jyoti Sanghera, Chief, Asia Pacific Section, Office of the United Nations High Commission on Human Rights (OHCHR) in Geneva will deliver a keynote address at the Forgotten Corridors: Global Displacement & the Politics of Engagement CARFMS17 Conference (uvic.ca/capi).

"Dying to Live" will focus on dispossession, eviction and precarity, the leitmotif of neoliberalism. How is the global migrant the chosen protagonist today for showcasing this leitmotif through spectacular suffering? How is the embodied experience of dispossession and perishability to be understood? Where does agency and subjectivity reside when lives are rendered disposable and the fateful struggle to live could literally mean dying? Has history done a full circle with markets today trading in enslaved migrants or are we in the throes of a 'hyperobject' - something beyond our ken? How does the migrant speak to create counter discourses against modernity and a counter allegorical episteme? What is the value, if any, of definitionally dismembering people who move into categories of refugees, smuggled, trafficked, economic migrants, etc? Whose interest does it serve to construct a hierarchy of migrants along a ladder of the more deserving and the less deserving?

The keynote presentation will grapple with the various frames which trap the lives of migrants, globally. It will examine the legal and policy gaps in the context of large and mixed movements of people in vulnerable situations and discuss how walls, fences and incarceration are deployed as tools of governance in response to the "migration crises." It will also reflect on the meaning of a rights based perspective and approach to migration.

Jyoti Sangera is a former faculty member of the Department of Gender Studies (Women's Studies).

Film PAULA 2017-05-17 19:00:00
Description

PAULA

Director: Christian Schwochow; Germany, 2016, 125 min; German & French with subtitles

Painting is an unacceptable vocation for a woman in provincial Germany in the year 1900, but budding artist Paula Becker (Carla Juri) is determined to make her own rules. The exuberant 24-year-old woman rejects the conventional and explores her unique style. She flourishes in the countryside art community of Worpswede, where she develops friendships with artist Clara Westhoff (Roxan Duran) and poet Rainer Maria Rilke (Joel Basman).

By marrying painter Otto Modersohn (Albrecht Schuch), she hopes to find a creative soulmate. He allows her to continue painting while assuming her duties as a good wife. Five years of domesticity take its toll on Paula's spirit, and she travels alone to modern Paris, where she studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and soon begins a romantic affair. Headstrong Paula is unstoppable: she embarks on a long-awaited period of creative fulfillment and self-realization... –Films We Like

SPECIAL FILM PRESENTATION

Chasing Asylum followed by a Q&A with Director Eva Orner

Chasing Asylum exposes the real impact of Australia’s offshore detention policies and explores how 'The Lucky Country' became a country where leaders choose detention over compassion and governments deprive the desperate of their basic human rights. The film features never before seen footage from inside Australia’s offshore detention camps, revealing the personal impact of sending those in search of a safe home to languish in limbo.  Chasing Asylum explores the mental, physical and fiscal consequences of Australia’s decision to lock away families in unsanitary conditions hidden from media scrutiny, destroying their lives under the pretext of saving them.

Making Lives Invisible: Managing Refugees outside the West

The Syrian Crisis has brought into sharp focus the politics of refugee control and management particularly around the borders of Western countries. Less attention has been given to the ways in which refugee lives are regulated within non-Western contexts, even though the majority of refugees continue to reside in them. How do non-western countries, often financially strapped themselves, host thousands of guests for protracted periods of time? How do different levels of the state, from the local to the national, mediate the relationships between hosts and guests? I look at privatized responses to the Syrian crisis in the Middle East and how that renders the lives of refugees both precarious and informal- invisibilizing the visible, enabling simultaneously the flexibility and entrapment of refugees within host countries. In doing so, I examine the emergence of the figure of the refugee at the intersection between the global and the local.

As Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation, the Legacy Art Galleries respectfully acknowledges a much longer history by presenting First Nations narratives that move beyond limited settler versions of history.

Film PAULA 2017-05-18 19:00:00
Description

PAULA

Director: Christian Schwochow; Germany, 2016, 125 min; German & French with subtitles

Painting is an unacceptable vocation for a woman in provincial Germany in the year 1900, but budding artist Paula Becker (Carla Juri) is determined to make her own rules. The exuberant 24-year-old woman rejects the conventional and explores her unique style. She flourishes in the countryside art community of Worpswede, where she develops friendships with artist Clara Westhoff (Roxan Duran) and poet Rainer Maria Rilke (Joel Basman).

By marrying painter Otto Modersohn (Albrecht Schuch), she hopes to find a creative soulmate. He allows her to continue painting while assuming her duties as a good wife. Five years of domesticity take its toll on Paula's spirit, and she travels alone to modern Paris, where she studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and soon begins a romantic affair. Headstrong Paula is unstoppable: she embarks on a long-awaited period of creative fulfillment and self-realization... –Films We Like

His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia.

PERSONAL SHOPPER

Director: Olivier Assayas; France, 2016, 106 min; 14A

After “Clouds of Sils Maria,” director Olivier Assayas and star Kristen Stewart re-team for this gripping suspense tale about a young woman (Stewart) who makes ends meet by assisting a super model/fashion designer—until, that is, her psychic forays seem to put her in touch with her long-dead twin… --Vancouver International Film Festival

“AN INCREDIBLE WORK THAT WILL CONTINUE TO HAUNT YOU, LONG AFTER IT IS OVER.” –RogerEbert.com

A captivating, bizarre, tense, fervently preposterous and almost unclassifiable scary movie…Stewart’s best performance to date. Five stars! The Guardian

Kristen Stewart is excellent in this magnificently unconventional Paris-set ghost story. --Time Out London

Kristen Stewart continues to prove she’s a world-class actress. –The New Republic

It works in two realms: as an engrossing ghost story and a drama that addresses profound matters of life and death.Washington Post
