3. Deirdre Logue Exhibition at Open Space

Opening Friday July 13, 7pm

 

Id’s Its — Installations by Deirdre Logue

Since early May, Deirdre Logue (Toronto, ON) has immersed herself in Victoria’s springtime energy, inhabiting a summer residency studio at Open Space. She has completed a major new video installation entitled Id’s Its, which opens on Friday, July 13, at 7 p.m.

Following the previous success of Enlightened Nonsense (1997–2000) and Why Always Instead of Just Sometimes (2003–2006), Id’s Its showcases Logue’s recent experimental self-portraits that continue her ongoing exploration into the psychological and physiological space of the self in contemporary art. Visitors to the exhibition will encounter an immersive and visually intense terrain. Meet Deirdre Logue at the opening of Id’s Its, where she will give a brief artist talk and tour of the exhibition at 7 p.m.

The Exhibition runs until August 4.

SCREENINGS

 

Movie Monday

 

6:30 pm Monday 16 Jul 2012

Loving Lampposts, 2011, 83 min

 

As autism has exploded into the public consciousness over the last 20 years, two opposing questions have been asked about the condition: is it a devastating sickness to be cured? Or is it a variation of the human brain – just a different way to be human?”Loving Lampposts” goes inside the autism wars and shows us the parents, doctors, therapists, and autistic people who are redefining this disorder at a moment when it’s better known than ever before. USA Pg

 

With guests including: Joseph Sheppard, co-director of UVic’s Center for Autism Research Technology and Education.

 

“Loving Lampposts takes a different view of autism. Inspired by the filmmaker’s own experience with a son on the autism spectrum, the film looks at the ‘neurodiversity’ movement, a growing group of people who view autism not only as a disorder that must be treated, but as a different way of life that must be accepted and supported. Told through the stories of autistic children and adults, the film examines the politics surrounding autism and the neurodiversity movement. Ultimately, it shows that it’s possible to lead a happy, successful life and be autistic.” Film Website

6:30 pm Monday 23 Jul 2012, 48 min

Fathers & Sons, 2010, 87 min

(rescheduled from May 21 when it went astray)

 

 

Fathers & Sons is an alternative feature length drama that employs aspects of the conventional drama in its creation, but utilizes entirely improvised dialogue in its execution. Following the lives of four very different families as they confront a pivotal moment in their relationships, the film celebrates those unchosen bonds that shape our lives, the blessings and burdens. This, second in our Carl Bessai trilogy, is a treat – and demonstrates again that good films can be made on a tiny budget! R particularly for language and a suggestive scene. trailer and official site

 

Movies are shown on a 12′ screen in the Eric Martin Pavilion in the 1900 block of Fort St. Admission by donation! Pop & popcorn at ridiculously low prices
