Jacob Wren: Authenticity is a Feeling-- Book Launch and Reading

Join READ Books for a reading by writer and performer Jacob Wren and to celebrate the launch of his new book.

Authenticity is a Feeling: My Life in PME-ART is a compelling hybrid of history, memoir, and performance theory. It tells the story of the interdisciplinary performance group PME-ART and their ongoing endeavour to make a new kind of highly collaborative theatre dedicated to the fragile but essential act of “being yourself in a performance situation.”

The Libby Leshgold Gallery is pleased to present QULLIQ: In Darkness, Light, a solo exhibition of new work by Maureen Gruben.

The qulliq is a traditional oil lamp that was once the heart of the home. It was used to heat, to cook and to bring continuous light during the darkness of the Arctic winter. The new work included in this exhibition explores notions of light and transparency related to the light of the oil lamp as well as the translucence of ice.

Film Screening: Nuclear Savage and Sandwars

Friday, January 12th at 5:30pm FVIM Screening Room | D1375

Please join us for a screening of two films, Nuclear Savage and Sandwars, in conjunction with our exhibition The Pacific.

Nuclear Savage (2012) | 87 minutes Written and directed by Adam Jonas Horowitz. He shot his first film in the Marshall Islands in 1986, and was shocked by what he found there, in this former American military colony in middle of the Pacific Ocean. Radioactive coconuts, leaking nuclear waste repositories, and densely populated slums were all the direct result of 67 Cold War U.S. nuclear bomb tests that vaporized islands and devastated entire populations.

How do we build criteria to establish authenticity in Canadian design history? What might the landscape, or eco-system, of Canadian design history look like?

Please join us for a discussion with designers Greg Durrell, Joel Derksen, and curator of Never Precious, Bonne Zabolotney. The discussion takes place within the Never Precious exhibition. From this vantage point and through their own projects the speakers will address ideas and issues around the history of Canadian design—a history that has been inconsistently recorded and discussed.
