Visual Impetus 2022. Art as Witness: Challenges and Opportunities *

Program

As humans face challenges on a local and global scale, visual media has become a vital witness for our encounters and experiences. Visual languages can channel the unspeakable, call out trauma andcall upon others to act. We propose that art can also bring hope, healing, and new opportunities.

Join us on Zoom to hear from graduate students and early career researchers as we reflect on these themes. All students, staff andcommunity members welcome.

Featuring keynote address from Art Historian, Curator, Author and Expert Consultant on British Columbian Art: Professor KerryMason.

Spencer

It's a daunting task to play one of the most famous most photographed and recorded figures of the 20th century — which makes Kristen Stewart's career-best, nomination-worthy, heartbreakinglyeffective performance in Pablo Larraín's Spencerall the more impressive. Lorrain has created a truth-inspired but largely fictional biographical fable centering on just a few days. The story takes place in 1991 over a three-dayChristmas weekend at Sandringham Estate. The jazzy score by Jonny Greenwood sets the tone for the cacophony of sounds in Diana's inner world, Spenceris an exquisitely designed, beautifully photographed and at times hauntingly surreal story.
