    Family Sunday

    until
    Family Sunday happens every third Sunday of the month October – June, and is an afternoon of exploring hands-on art-making and ideas for all ages. This recurring program often features special guests like storytellers, artists, performers or musicians. When May arrives in Victoria, so do birds from all parts of the world. Their migration is our special guest Liam Singh’s flight of fascination, and we will be sharing a very special Family Sunday video where you can learn all about the feathered folk who make Vancouver Island their home. Keep your eye on our YouTube channel for the the ‘flight’ of our next Family Sunday video being released on May 16!

    Please join the Gallery for the opening of Retainers of Anarchy, a solo exhibition featuring new work from Howie Tsui that considers wuxia as a narrative tool for dissidence and resistance. Wuxia, a traditional form of martial arts literature that expanded into 20th-century popular film and television, was created out of narratives and characters often from lower social classes that uphold chivalric ideals against oppressive forces during unstable times. Retainers of Anarchy is collaboratively organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Great Victoria and the Ottawa Art Gallery. The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria iteration curated by Michelle Jacques.

    Who says visual art gets to have all the fun? Words have power and beauty too! Join us online with our guide Marie Metaphor, spoken word artist, as she leads our imaginations to all kinds of enchanting new places. Marie is a multidisciplinary artist and educator living on the traditional and unceded territories of the Lək̓ʷəŋən speaking peoples, (Victoria, BC). The vocabulary of the sea, the chlorophyll dialects of the forest and the anchor of this soil are integral to her work. Marie’s poetry has been published in a number of anthologies and journals in print and online including Room magazine, The Chestnut Review and Brickyard (Brickbooks). She has performed at a wide variety of venues ranging from literary festivals to interdisciplinary arts events to local poetry slams and has been coaching youth poets for nearly a decade. Marie’s work leads with compassion as she endeavors to create moments of intimacy, tapping into art’s unique ability to breed empathy and connection among diverse individuals and communities. She believes in reckless acts of beauty. She believes in the power of stories shared. Stay tuned for the video release on our YouTube channel on April 18 at 2pm! Family Sunday happens every third Sunday of the month October – June, and is an afternoon of exploring hands-on art-making and ideas for all ages.

    What happens when we combine sound and movement? What can that look like? Join us online (Zoom live) with DJ Nova Jade and we’ll explore a smorgasbord of music and rhythm. Prepare to dance in your living room! Tera Greene aka ‘DJ Nova Jade’, an award-winning DJ since 2003. Her taste in music is eclectic and substantially diverse, and she has been featured in music festivals, fitness centers, and even inside of art gallery spaces for events like our popular Urbanite event. The host of the popular Bad Rabbit Radio on SUB.FM, Nova* plays house and bass music bi-weekly for a worldwide audience. As an educator and “artivist”, Ms. Jade* has been invited to teach workshops on the fusion of dance, movement and music at the Patel Conservatory in the United States, and in events for high-risk/at-risk youth and for adults as a pathway for rehabilitation. Before she was a DJ, Nova Jade* was a dancer. She is a self-proclaimed “DJ’s DJ” and her sincere intention for every event is to help you move in some way: physically, emotionally, and otherwise.

    Come and see what’s on display at the Gallery! This new installation of contemporary art in the Ker Gallery aims to create a contemplative, mostly monochromatic space. The exhibition spans time, cultures, and techniques. Through these works, aspects of design, architecture, craft, history, and identity are present. Through the lens of Celebrating the AGGV Collection, it has been a great opportunity to dive into the permanent collection and see what works are long overdue for display, and to consider which artists and stories can be highlighted in that process. Free admission, 10AM - 5PM. Artists include: Sybil Andrews, Ghitta Caiserman-Roth, Robert De Castro, Judi Dyelle, Rodney Graham, Kiakshuk, Latcholassie Akesuk, lessLIE, Sol Lewitt, Medrie MacPhee, Luanne Martineau, Naoko Matsubara, Waine Ryzak, Dylan Thomas, Vredaparis.
