Exhibit Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-01-19 10:00
Description

This exhibition celebrates the career of Kwakiutl (Kwakwaka'wakw) carver Ellen Neel (1916-1966), the first woman carver of monumental totem poles. Further, it acknowledges Neel's influential role as a professional artist and her contribution towards the recognition of Northwest Coast Indian art as a contemporary art form.

"Our art continues to live, for not only is it part and parcel of us, but can be a powerful factor in combining the best part of Indian culture with the fabric of a truly Canadian art form."

Ellen Neel

Exhibit One Way or Another - Megan Dickie 2017-01-19 All Day
Description

One Way or Another highlights the failure involved in the quest for excellence. The project originated with a trilogy of videos that use classic video games as a platform to investigate human struggle. Within this trilogy a character blunders through a series of obstacles that constantly defy her. These impediments are indicative of forms and concepts that drive my artistic practice: logic inspired, insurmountable forms that are turned into absurd objects of physical comedy. The structures from the videos have been brought to life through sculptures that focus on endless patterns. Together, the sculptures and videos create an immersive environment of humorous persistence. Questioning the value of human progress and highlighting the struggle for bigger, better and more.

 

Megan Dickie is an artist who works in the mediums of sculpture, video and printmaking. Her artistic research focuses on the seductive tension that exists between reason and play. Dickie explores this concept by subverting systems and structures with critically deployed humour.

 

Megan Dickie has exhibited her work across Canada with exhibitions at Oxygen Art Centre (Nelson), Latitude 53 (Edmonton), Stride (Calgary), Grunt Gallery, (Vancouver) BC, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, the Kenderdine Art Gallery (Saskatoon), Artcite Inc. (Windsor) and Artspace (Peterborough) to name just a few. Dickie has received numerous grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council. Her BFA in printmaking was obtained from the University of Calgary in 1997 and she received a MFA in sculpture from the University of Saskatchewan in 2002.  Megan Dickie currently resides in Victoria, BC and is an Assistant Professor of Visual Art at the University of Victoria.

Lecture/Seminar Composing Spinoza?s Ethica 2017-01-19 16:30:00
Description

This year, Biró has been composing a large-scale musical composition based on Baruch Spinoza's philosophical work, Ethica. Exploring concepts of “space and place,” the composition employs text from Ethica and deals with questions of one’s religious place in the global world. In this lecture, he will discuss the work and life of Baruch Spinoza and how, in his compositional work, Biró ventures to explore philosophical and religious domains via musical analogy. He will show examples of previous and ongoing creative output.

Film Two Lovers and a Bear 2017-01-19 19:00:00
Description

TWO LOVERS AND A BEAR

Director: Kim Nguyen, Canada, 2016, 96 min; 14A

A hypnotic romance about two star-crossed lovers who find that the icy expanses of the Arctic offer little refuge from their pasts. Lucy (Tatiana Maslany, ‘Orphan Black’) and Roman (Dane DeHaan, ‘Life’) are deeply and claustrophobically in love, in their remote town of Apex in Nunavut. But when Lucy is offered a scholarship, it plunges Roman into a deep depression. He finally accedes to her pleas that they spend time together before her imminent departure. Reunited, the couple sets out on one last voyage through the uncharted Arctic wilderness, where it soon becomes clear that Lucy has equally debilitating demons of her own. Director Nguyen transforms his story's unforgiving yet visually stunning environment into a space both viscerally realistic and metaphorical. –Toronto International Film Festival

Set in Apex, and shot in and around Iqaluit, the film portrays the Arctic as a shiftless frontier of cultural unrest. –Maclean’s

“A cold and enigmatic film that envelops the viewer like a big ghostly bear hug.” ---Cinemablographer
