Lecture/Seminar The Quest for Longevity Genes 2014-10-01 13:30:00
Description

You are invited to the Centre on Aging's annual International Day of Older Persons Lecture and tea on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 1:30PM.

The afternoon will include the presentation of the Valued Elder Recognition Award (VERA) to nominated volunteers who have given exemplary service helping others to the Capital Regional District, a complimentary afternoon tea for all attendees and a lecture presented by Dr. Ed Ishiguro, of the Department of Biochemistry & Microbiology.

Dr. Ishiguro’s lecture is on “The Quest for Longevity Genes”. Long lifespans are known to occur in certain families, raising the possibility that longevity may be an inherited trait. How do we identify and characterize genes that influence lifespan, and how does that information improve our understanding of the biochemical basis for aging?

For information on the afternoon's program, please visit the Centre on Aging website.

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-10-01 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.

Film "GORE VIDAL: The United States of Amnesia" 2014-10-01 19:10:00
Description

GORE VIDAL: The United States of Amnesia

Director: Nicholas Wrathall   USA, 2013, 83 minutes

“SUPERB DOCUMENTARY!” –Hollywood Reporter

WINNER! AUDIENCE AWARD -- Palm Springs Film Festival


Eternally opinionated, brilliantly funny and terminally political, Gore Vidal—novelist, essayist, polemicist, politician, pundit, screenwriter—was the true protean man. Born in 1925, Vidal—openly homosexual from 1948, when his novel The City and the Pillar was published—fashioned a unique professional life that lasted more than 50 years. Using fascinating archival footage from Vidal’s legendary on-air career and illuminating and entertaining interviews—including an exclusive as he neared the end of his life, as well as one with the late Christopher Hitchens—Nicholas Wrathall’s intimate and rollicking portrait of an American icon also examines Vidal’s global impact on the worlds of arts, politics and everything in between. –Vancouver International Film Festival

Music Galiano Ensemble Performs European Rarities 2014-10-01 20:00:00
Description

The Galiano Ensemble of Victoria is celebrating its 15th season this year!  In their first performance, the orchestra will offer a variety of lesser-known works from European composers.  Talented Belgian composer, Guillaume Lekeu, was only 21 when he wrote the beautiful and sombre Adagio for String Orchestra in 1891.  Although he showed great promise, he died just 3 years later and left many compositions unfinished.

Felix Mendelssohn’s String Symphony No. 11 was composed in 1823 when he was just 14!  He was experimenting with this music form and took some inspiration from Mozart and Beethoven while developing his own style.  The five movements in this composition display much more complexity than his earlier string symphonies.

Symphony No. 2, by Swiss composer, Arthur Honegger, is a majestic work that took 4 years to write beginning in 1937.  The music is troubled and turbulent, reflecting the dark times then being experienced in Europe, but concludes hopefully with a solo trumpet suggesting a brighter future to come.

Conductor Yariv Aloni and the orchestra are sure to delight their audience with these compositions as they begin their 15th season, so don’t miss he chance to hear some wonderful classical music in a terrific venue.

The concert will be performed Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 8:00 pm in the Phillip T. Young Recital Hall in the Maclaurin Bldg (Parking Lot "E").

Exhibit Salish Reflection: Coast Salish Art and Artists on Campus 2014-10-01 10:00
Description

August 15, 2014 to January 10, 2015

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

Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street | Small Gallery

This exhibition honours Coast Salish artists Chris Paul, Maynard Johnny Jr., and knitters May Sam and the Olsen family (Adam, Joni, and their mother Sylvia) who were part of the University of Victoria's Artist in Residence Program through the Department of Anthropology between 2011 and 2013. During their 3 month residency they taught students about their own artistic practices as well as aspects of Coast Salish history and contemporary culture. The exhibit illustrates the teaching methodology and experience of students and artists in collaboration along with examples of the artists' work.

The Artist in Residence Program is facilitated by Dr. Andrea Walsh, who teaches the Anthropology of Art, and the program is supported by donors George and Christiane Smyth.
