Exhibit Perpetual Salish: Contemporary Coast Salish Art from the Salish Weave Collection 2014-11-21 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.

Curator's Talk | Perpetual Salish

Exhibit Salish Reflection: Coast Salish Art and Artists on Campus 2014-11-21 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.

Film "THE F WORD" 2014-11-21 15:00:00
Description

THE F WORD

Based on a play by T.J. Dawe & Michael Rinaldi

Director: Mike Dowse; Canada, 2014, 98 min; PG  Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Zoey Kazan, Megan Park, Adam Driver, Rafe Spall

“IRRESISIBLE!” –Rolling Stone

‘WONDERFUL!” –New York Magazine

“A SPARKLING SCREWBALL HIGHBALL.” –Salon

Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) is a hopeless romantic. He meets animator Chantry (Zoe Kazan) – who, unfortunately, is already in a relationship. Ignoring their attraction, the pair decide to remain friends, which turns out to be far more difficult than they imagined. It might seem odd that Mike Dowse (“Goon,” “FUBAR”) could make the year’s freshest and most winning romantic comedy: sensitive, contemporary, and most importantly very, very funny. –Toronto International

Theatre A Midsummer Night's Dream 2014-11-21 20:00:00
Description

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Fran Gebhard

Love and illusion collide in Shakespeare’s most poetic and magical play. Ignited by misplaced passions and political maneuvering, two pairs of lovers become entangled. Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius find themselves at the mercy of powerful forces (and their own passions) during a hot, New York summer night. Set in the underground culture of Greenwich Village in the mid 1970s – as punk rockers begin to usurp the flower-power children of the 1960s – Gebhard ‘s “Dream” is a fun edgy spin on Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy.

Lecture/Seminar Eco-urban Neighbourhoods and the Prospect of Sustainability Transformations 2014-11-21 14:45:00
Description

Eco-urban Neighbourhoods and the Prospect of Sustainability Transformations

Meg Holden
Associate Professor, Urban Studies, Simon Fraser University

Neighbourhood scale sustainability districts are coming to serve a growing role in urban sustainability strategies.  In the past decade, ecodistricts, écoquartiers, eco-cities, zero/low-carbon/carbon-positive cities, ecopolises, One Planet Communities, and solar cities have become frames – sometimes the dominant frame – used to justify and orient the construction of new pieces of city in a growing range of countries worldwide.  Eco-urban developments are currently part of a movement toward green global cosmopolitanism that nonetheless expresses itself in fragmented and divergent ways in different world regions.  That is, eco-urban developments are being pursued, increasingly, based on standardized models and forms that are coming to redefine relevant and meaningful sustainability efforts in specific economic, political, social, and design-based terms.  In so doing, they are changing the solution set we associate with sustainable development, and even the characterization of the problem of unsustainability, at the same time as they change the face of our cities.  The eco-urbanism expressed in these new pieces of city is no longer so much a critique of capitalist values, globalization, and urbanization.  Instead, it is offered as a solution to crises in capitalism, environmental quality, and social cohesion.  The implications for the politics of transformation associated with sustainable development are profound.

Other Arts, Spaces, Communities - AHVS Grad Student Symposium - Call for Papers 2014-11-21 08:00:00
Description

Visual Impetus XIII: Arts, Spaces, Communities

Graduate Student Research Symposium
Department of Art History and Visual Studies, University of Victoria

There is an increasing need for an understanding of visual culture not just in the arts but also across all disciplines. Often the examination of art places less emphasis on the effects of visual culture on its surrounding environment.  Yet so much knowledge can be gained by looking at how the locations, spaces, communities, and encompassing materials impact and engage with the arts.  Art has the power to define physical boundaries, reflect social values, bring people together, and even drive economic development.  The organizers of Visual Impetus XIV seek presentations that address visual culture, which have impacted or changed spaces and communities from around the world.

We welcome submissions from graduate students of all disciplines, as long as the content focuses on the arts or visual culture. Please send your paper proposal, consisting of a 250-word abstract and brief CV, to the symposium organizational committee.

Submissions must be made via email by December 1, 2014 to Committee Chair Regan Shrumm: rshrumm@gmail.com

Please include your full name, student status, contact information, and schedule availability with your submission. Presentations must not exceed fifteen minutes in length.

Visual Impetus XIV will take place on January 23rd and 24th at the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia.
