“News from another pandemic, the one that ‘changed everything’ before it fell out of the news cycle and collective memory, except for the newly infected, or those who, like myself, managed a new life after death. Based on a text by David Wojnarowicz.” - Mike Hoolboom About XRAY(S)
“Visually resplendent, and philosophically political, or is it politically philosophical? It features the flow, the intensity, and the rhythm of thought itself, or perhaps even: the rhythm of new thought, of a new idea, the momentum required to overcome the dust of the past, in order to invent something else “ - Quote by Mike Hoolboom

Legacy Maltwood Gallery | On campus in the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library
Pop Anthropology is an exhibition of multimedia artist Eric Metcalfe’s oeuvre, spanning over sixty years, in celebration of the artist’s honorary doctorate from UVic (UVic DFA 2021, BFA 1970). This exhibition continues the playful and charged work of Metcalfe’s life: reimagining images, tropes and stereotypes as poignant and plentiful scraps from which to pull meaning. It honours his early development as a student in Visual Arts at the University of Victoria in the early 1970s, as well as his lifetime achievements as a pioneer in performance art in western Canada and co-founder of the Western Front, one of Canada’s leading and longest running artist run centres.

January 15, 2022 06:00 PM April 09, 2022 07:00 AMIn Spanish, derrumbar means to crumble away, to tumble down. Derrumbeat is a sonic collage accompanied by photos and video work created from the audio-visual traces left by falling rocks, pieces of wood, cement and ceramics collected in various abandoned sites in the capital of Cuba, Havana. Derrumbeat calls visitors to listen to the traces left by human passages and presence in an urban environment as time passes. It further encourages listeners to reflect on the rejuvenation of decay and the layers of meanings we can unearth in our own cities.

Come to Recyclistas to learn how to safely and effectively maintain, fix, and rebuild bicycles. Whether you are looking to better understand how your own bicycle works, get comfortable doing your own bike repairs, or to completely refurbish and build a bicycle, we are ready to help you get rolling!
If you want to go into more detail, we also offer a 15-hour Build Your Own Bike Course.
The 3-hour bike repair class does not have a set curriculum, but are conducted on a bike-by-bike basis so you get to work on what is wrong with your bike. We teach everything from fixing a flat to building a wheel and stock all the new & used parts you might need for your bike repairs (cost of parts is not included in the course fee).
Unfortunately we are not able to teach suspension overhauls, hydraulic brake bleeding, or any e-bike repairs during the course.
