Film "CALVARY" 2014-10-25 15:00:00
Description

CALVARY
Director: John Michael McDonagh   Ireland, 2014, 101 min; 14A
Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly

FOUR STARS! A darkly funny look at the nature of faith in a world gone wrong, starring Brendan Gleeson as a good priest in a small parish in the west of Ireland. Taking confession, Father James hears something he's never heard before: "I'm going to kill you," the man on the other side of the screen vows. The parishioner explains that as an altar boy he was sexually abused. To punish Father James for the sins of his fellow priests seems like the perfect, ironic act of retribution. Gleeson's priest has a week to get his life in order. “Terrific fodder for conversation long after its credits roll.” ---RogerEbert.com

Exhibit Salish Reflection: Coast Salish Art and Artists on Campus 2014-10-25 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.

Adapted from the novel by C.S. Lewis 

Featuring Kaitlin Williams (BFA’09) and Mack Gordon (BFA’ 08)

Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-10-25 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.
