Button blankets by Westshore Colwood Campus students. Curated by UVic Art History and Visual Studies students. A project of the Legacy Chair.

Button blanket robes are textile regalia worn in Northwest Coast feasts and ceremonies. Urban Regalia: Westshore Stories carries the vision of Gitxsan button blanket maker, fashion designer, and teacher Sugitt Lukxs — Yolonda Skelton from her studio to her students at the Westshore Colwood Campus. Westshore students tell stories from their lives and from making connections to the land using ovoids, u-forms, s-forms, melton wool fabric and buttons. UVic Art History and Visual Studies students curated this exhibition as part of their learning about oral art histories. Urban Regalia: Westshore Stories represents shared learning experiences and emerging connections between UVic and Westshore classrooms.

Guest curated by Wayne Baerwaldt.

As people who identify as trans, gender fluid, non-binary, Two Spirit, and other diverse gender identities face complex and challenging societal responses, the act of representing oneself can be a brave act of defiance. FLUID, a new photographic portrait series by Los Angeles-based artist Blake Little, sets out to collaborate with diverse local, national and international trans and gender fluid people to capture and reflect some of the concerns and potentials of how they choose to represent themselves through photography.

Supported by the Chair in Transgender Studies. We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.

Join trans culture writer and filmmaker Chase Joynt for a discussion about the role of fantasy and fiction in the telling of (trans) histories along with a screening of his recent short film, Framing AgnesFraming Agnes premiered at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival and is being expanded into a feature film with support from Telefilm Canada’s Talent to Watch program. Joynt joined UVic’s Department of Gender Studies in July, 2019 after his term as a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Chicago. Copies of Joynt’s first book, You Only Live Twice—a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award that was also named one of the best books of the year by The Globe and Mail and the CBC—will be on hand and available for purchase.

About Framing Agnes: In the late 1950s, a woman named Agnes approached the UCLA Medical Center seeking sex reassignment surgery. Her story was long considered to be exceptional and singular until never-before-seen case files of other patients were found in 2017. Framing Agnes features preeminent trans culture-makers breathing new life into those who redefined gender in the mid-century.

Woven, Embroidered and Stitched in Tradition: Women’s Textile Labour in 20th Century Asia

Feb 8 to May 24, 2020

Legacy Maltwood | at the McPherson Library – Mearns Centre, UVic campus, Room 025 and at UVic Libraries Special Collections and University Archives Room A005 

This exhibition is part of a three day symposium, “Gendered Threads of Globalization: 20th Century Textile Crossings in Asia Pacific.”, March 27-29, 2020. Full symposium details here *** Please note, this Gendered Threads of Globalization Symposium was postposed.

Curated by Claire Aitken (AHVS undergrad student) with consultation by Hitomi Harama, local kimono and Japanese culture expert and Yorika Terada (AHVS undergraduate student). Project supervised by Melia Belli Bose, Associate Professor of South Asian Art History with Caroline Riedel, Curator of Collections, UVic Legacy Art Galleries.

This exhibition showcases a dazzling array of luxury textiles from the University of Victoria’s collection and on loan from private collections. These pieces, exquisitely crafted in China, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, and Bangladesh, shed light on women’s roles as makers, consumers, and connoisseurs between the late 19th century to today. This era witnessed monumental shifts in the production, accessibility, and commodification of garments globally. In the process, particularly women’s skilled textile labour was devalued. This exhibition draws attention to not only women’s heritage textiles throughout Asia, and their modern adaptations, it also closely considers their traditional makers and consumers.

Myfanwy Pavelic: Mirrored Selves Within and Without

Image: Myfanwy Pavelic, Raincoat (Self-Portrait), 1987, Gift of Dr. Myfanwy Spencer Pavelic.

This exhibition is presented in two parts: 

May 18 – September 15, 2019Legacy Maltwood | at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library

May 25 – September 21, 2019 –Legacy Downtown | 630 Yates St.

Victoria-born artist Myfanwy Pavelic (1916-2007) was fascinated with the inner and outer dimensions of being human. Imbued with prescient human insights, and largely self-taught, she created insightful and compelling portraits in pencil, collage, acrylic and oil. 

In an exhibition that spans her entire career, guest curator Patricia Bovey explores how Pavelic’s keen observation, empathy and knowledge of anatomy allowed her to capture her subjects’ inner essence – fears, vulnerabilities and strengths – consistently revealing the tensions between within and without. Her self-portraits honestly convey her own inner explorations and she used this experience to probe the depths of celebrities including acclaimed violinist Yehudi Menuhin, Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, and renowned actress Katharine Hepburn. Multilayered in feeling and expression, her works exude dignity, beauty and the depths of joy, sadness and despair.

Opening Celebration & Curator Talk – Saturday, May 25 | 2 – 4pm With Guest Curator, Patricia Bovey

Curator Talk with Patricia Bovey

Thursday, July 25 | 7pm

Myfanwy in Context – This illustrated talk will address the significance of Myfanwy Pavelic’s art and situate her visual acumen and accomplishments with portraits within the context of several major Canadian artists including Emily Carr, Paraskeva Clark, Vera Weatherbie and Molly Lamb Bobak.

The Ground Above Us

July 26 – September 14, 2019 

Inner Gallery | Legacy Downtown | 630 Yates St. Lekwungen territory

Charles Campbell and Farheen HaQ with Yuxwelupton Qwal’qaxala (Bradley Dick) 

This collaborative project intersects our practices as visual artists, racialized bodies and guests on these territories. We ask the question: How does our creative work of making space for our voices and experience meet the ground and history here? 

“What I see us recording is the movement of time and the way that the rock is not solid, and the way that it’s been cracked and formed and changed and it moves…”

“The effort we’re making to find our place on this land, to touch it and be grounded by it, also speaks to our ungrounding, to the places we’ve been disconnected from, where we no longer have a place.”

– Farheen & Charles in conversation

Opening Celebration

Friday July 26 | 7 pm
Join us for the opening celebration of The Ground Above Us with artists Charles Campbell, Farheen HaQ and Yuxwelupton Qwal’qaxala (Bradley Dick). Refreshments will be provided!

Legacy’s mission is to promote dialogue around issues that matter, leading the gallery to feature art and exhibitions by Indigenous women, women of colour, and gender-diverse artists. This exhibition aims to highlight the possibilities, difficulties and importance of presenting works by under-recognized groups.

Featured artists include Pitseolak Ashoona, Eva Campbell, Pnina Granirer, Angela Marston, Meryl McMaster, Carol Moiseiwitsch, Ellen Neel, Lou-ann Neel, Susan Point, Mary Pratt, Jennifer Stillwell, Marika Echachis Swan, and Jennifer Waelti Walters.

Translations: The Art and Life Of Elizabeth Yeend Duer—Gyokushō 玉蕉

January 12 – April 6, 2019

Legacy Downtown | 630 Yates St. | Lkwungen Territory

Translations showcases the movement of ideas, aesthetics, politics, and people between England, Japan, and Victoria, Canada, by looking at the life and work of Anglo-Japanese artist Elizabeth Yeend Duer (1889–1951). Born a British citizen in Nagasaki to an Englishman and a Japanese woman, Duer studied Nihonga, a traditional Japanese-style painting, with the renowned painter and teacher Atomi Gyokushi 跡見 玉枝. Duer took on the artistic identity of Gyokushō 玉蕉. She immigrated to Victoria in 1940 and is among the remarkably few people of Japanese heritage who were not interned during World War II. Instead, she Japanized her new environment by producing Nihonga-style paintings of local indigenous wildflowers while her own identity was being anglicized.

Co-curators: Carolyn Butler Palmer, Legacy Chair in Modern and Contemporary Art of the Pacific Northwest, Art History & Visual Studies, University of Victoria; Mikiko Hirayama Associate Professor of Asian Art History and Director of Asian Studies, College of Arts and Sciences, University of Cincinnati; and Janice Okada, B.A., M.M.St.

Visual Inquiry: Research through Making

Alison Shields, Studio Archive, 2018.

April 13 – May 18, 2019

Legacy Downtown  630 Yates St. | Lekwungen territory

This 39th annual Art Education faculty exhibition presents the creative explorations of 19 UVic artist-educators, researching the relationships between the field of art education, their studio practice and teaching.

The BC school curriculum recently underwent significant change across all subject areas and grade levels. The new curriculum is in many ways modeled after studio art practice and focuses less on rote facts and more on “Big Ideas.” Through processes of inquiry, students are challenged to engage with core competencies of communication, creative thinking, critical thinking, personal awareness and responsibility, positive personal and cultural identity and social responsibility.

Each artist’s work can be viewed as research through making. Links are made between the craft, materials, concepts and philosophies of individual Art Educators and the “Big Ideas” articulated in the BC Art Education Curriculum. Viewers are invited to discover the patterns that emerge across the works of these creative colleagues that reflect directions in the field of art education that will prepare their pre-service students for the role of teaching in BC’s schools.
