Ideafest: Re-imagining race, art and landscape

Ideafest: Re-imagining race, art and landscape

Date: 
Friday, March 10, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

How do artists of colour experience race and identity? Grafton Tyler Brown was one of the first professional landscape artists in BC, and the story of his racial identity shifted throughout his career to where he eventually passed for white. Three contemporary artists of colour—Charles Campbell, Kemi Craig and Victoria's youth poet laureate Ann-Bernice Thomas—will perform new work relating to racial identity in response to the UVic Legacy Gallery exhibition, The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown.

Art Battle

Date: 
Friday, March 10, 2017 - 7:00pm to 11:00pm

Art Battle is live competitive painting. Painters create the best work they can in 20 minutes. As they work, patrons move around the easels, closely watching the creative process. The medium is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any non-mechanical implements. At the end of the round, the audience votes democratically for their favourite painting and bids in silent auction to take the work home. Art Battle happens in cities across Canada and has hosted over 400 events over the past eight seasons of competitions coast to coast!
