Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-05-21 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. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Description

BCCF Chorfest 2017 Gala Concert:

United in Song - Celebrating Canada’s 150th!

Sunday, May 21, 2017: 2:30pm

University Centre Farquhar Auditorium

The British Columbia Choral Federation (BCCF) hosts an annual gathering of choralists from across the province working with inspired leaders of the choral world. This year, Victoria welcomes ‘United in Song - Celebrating Canada’s 150th’ with a stellar cast of conductors and over 300 singers performing in four different choirs.

BCCF Chorfest 2017 singers, under the direction of conductor Jon Washburn - artistic director of the Vancouver Chamber Choir, will perform Ralph Vaughan Williams’ beautiful Serenade to Music in the full choral/orchestral version, as well as works by Stephen Chatman and Ian McDougall.

Three other choirs will perform an eclectic and wide-ranging selection of choral works with accomplished conductors from across Canada: Scott Leithead of Kokopelli Choirs in Edmonton will lead the brand new Young Adult Chorfest Choir; Madeleine Humer of the Victoria Childrens’ Choir will lead the Chorfest Children’s Choir; and, Kathleen Allan hailing from Newfoundland and now part of Vancouver’s choral scene, will lead the auditioned BC Youth Choir. This afternoon’s performance is a once in a lifetime event for choralists and audience alike, as our very own Victoria Symphony joins these singers on stage.

This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the Victoria Foundation, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.

Film BRAZIL 2017-05-23 19:00:00
Description

 

BRAZIL

(Terry Gilliam, UK, 1984, 131 min; PG)  

In this dystopian masterpiece, Jonathan Pryce plays a daydreaming everyman who finds himself caught in the soul-crushing gears of a nightmarish bureaucracy. This cautionary tale, one of the great films of the 1980s, has come to be esteemed alongside anti-totalitarian works by the likes of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley. And in terms of set design, cinematography, music, and effects, Brazil is a nonstop dazzler. –Criterion Collection

98% on Rotten Tomatoes!

Description

THE WEDDING PLAN

Director: Rama Burshtein; Israel, 2016, 110 min, Hebrew with subtitles

At 32, Michal (Noa Kooler) is finally looking forward to the comfort and security of marriage, when she is blindsided by her fiancé’s decision to call off the wedding with only a month’s notice. Unwilling to return to lonely single life, Michal decides to put her trust in fate and continue with her wedding plans, believing Mr. Right will appear by her chosen date.

She enlists the help of two different matchmakers, goes on a series of disastrous blind dates and finds an unexpected connection with a charming but utterly unsuitable pop star – all while dismissing pleas by concerned friends and family members that she reconsider her risky plan. As the day of the ceremony grows closer and no suitor appears, Michal puts everything on the line to find happiness.

Description

Are your students not asking enough questions in class? Are there long lines, or no lines, outside your office every week? If so, consider moving some of your office hours online! Engaging students via IRC, an anonymous text-based interface, enhances the ability of busy, working students, EAL students, shy students or students with disabilities to access professor feedback at their own pace. This technique is popular with students and has led to dramatic increases in retention and understanding of material covered.  The workshop will introduce participants to IRC and its course applications, and will also briefly review the use of Skype for group project feedback.

Lecture/Seminar MDMA-assisted Psychotherapy for PTSD: Research and Possibilities 2017-05-26 12:00:00
Description

After a 50 year hiatus, psychedelic medicines are being studied again for possible uses in psychotherapy of such conditions as PTSD, end-of-life anxiety and addictions. A  Vancouver team was part of a multisite Phase 2 research study into MDMA (street name: “ecstasy”)-assisted psychotherapy of PTSD. It was completed last year. The experience of participating in this study and results from Canadian and US research will be presented.
 
About the Speaker
 
Dr. Ingrid Pacey comes from a Lithuanian family which migrated to Australia in 1949. She came to Canada in 1967 after completing medical school at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. She received her psychiatric training at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, graduating in 1972. While in medical school, she witnessed LSD psychotherapy in a psychiatric setting as part of her training. Her private practice in Vancouver became focused on psychotherapy for trauma survivors, particularly women who had been sexually abused as children. From 1987 - 1990, she trained with Dr. Stanislav and Christina Grof in Holotropic Breathwork. Over the next 14 years, she went on to pioneer the use of Holotropic Breathwork with trauma survivors, observing the special needs of people with PTSD when working in Holotropic Breathwork groups. Through this work she came to see the value of working with nonordinary states of consciousness for people suffering from PTSD.
 
Dr. Pacey continues to practice psychiatry in Vancouver, and she has lectured in Canada and the US.

Film MAUDIE 2017-05-26 19:00:00
Description

MAUDIE

Director: Aisling Walsh; Canada/Ireland, 2016, 112 min; PG

WINNER! PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD –Vancouver International Film Festival

The life of legendary Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis is painted in exquisite detail in this impeccably acted, incredibly affecting biopic. At the beating heart of Aisling Walsh’s film is Sally Hawkins (beloved for her performances in Happy-Go-Lucky and Made in Dagenham), who not only captures the contorted physicality of this self-taught painter, who contended with rheumatoid arthritis, but also exudes the creative spirit raging within her.

The film’s backdrop is undeniably cinematic: the rugged beauty and expansive vistas of 1930s Nova Scotia. Likewise, its primary setting is unspeakably intimate: the comically tiny one-room house that Maud shares with misanthropic fish peddler Everett (Ethan Hawke), initially as his housekeeper but soon as his wife—albeit still placing behind his dogs and chickens in terms of his favoured tenants. Undaunted, she’s inspired by the natural splendour surrounding their hovel to take up a paint brush.

Operating with no preconceptions of what “art” should be, her charmingly unsophisticated, uniquely one-dimensional paintings strike a chord with tastemakers and soon she’s a leading figure in the Naïve Art movement. Her exuberance proves infectious, ensuring that when she intones "I was loved" near the film’s end, we each count ourselves amongst those who adored her. –Vancouver International Film Festival

“Sally Hawkins delivers an unforgettable performance.”Georgia Straight

“Hawkins' performance splendidly carries the day.”The Hollywood Reporter

Origin Stories

First Nations Prints and Carvings

Guest curated by Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) with Gillian Booth and Katie Hughes.

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. Through prints and carvings chosen by guest curator, Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) from the Fort Nelson First Nation, the exhibition explores centuries-old stories that continue to live in the people, communities, nations and lands of this place.

Film MAUDIE 2017-05-27 19:00:00
Description

MAUDIE

Director: Aisling Walsh; Canada/Ireland, 2016, 112 min; PG

WINNER! PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD –Vancouver International Film Festival

The life of legendary Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis is painted in exquisite detail in this impeccably acted, incredibly affecting biopic. At the beating heart of Aisling Walsh’s film is Sally Hawkins (beloved for her performances in Happy-Go-Lucky and Made in Dagenham), who not only captures the contorted physicality of this self-taught painter, who contended with rheumatoid arthritis, but also exudes the creative spirit raging within her.

The film’s backdrop is undeniably cinematic: the rugged beauty and expansive vistas of 1930s Nova Scotia. Likewise, its primary setting is unspeakably intimate: the comically tiny one-room house that Maud shares with misanthropic fish peddler Everett (Ethan Hawke), initially as his housekeeper but soon as his wife—albeit still placing behind his dogs and chickens in terms of his favoured tenants. Undaunted, she’s inspired by the natural splendour surrounding their hovel to take up a paint brush.

Operating with no preconceptions of what “art” should be, her charmingly unsophisticated, uniquely one-dimensional paintings strike a chord with tastemakers and soon she’s a leading figure in the Naïve Art movement. Her exuberance proves infectious, ensuring that when she intones "I was loved" near the film’s end, we each count ourselves amongst those who adored her. –Vancouver International Film Festival

“Sally Hawkins delivers an unforgettable performance.”Georgia Straight
