Art History Presentations

 SpacerPost-Revolutionary Art in Russia

October 23, 2017 | 7–9 p.m.
After the Revolution, artists had a short utopian window of opportunity during which they reassessed the role of the artist within the new Communist State.  They changed the lexicon surrounding art and, since they no longer had wealthy patrons, they had to legitimize what they were doing as they experimented with new ideas in the state-run schools.  Artists utilized abstraction, but also contributed to propaganda and applied their talents to utilitarian objects and design.  With the shift from Lenin to Stalin, avant-gardism in Russia was suppressed and Socialist Realism became the only tolerated type of art.

Cost: $15
Register by phone at 604-925-7270 (course # 35016) or online.

 Presenter: Sandra Seekins, M.A., Art Historian, Capilano University

Bali has long been Indonesia’s prime tourist destination with its original charm is still very much present. With its emerald-green rice terraces, beautiful beaches and exceptionally artistic culture, the small volcanic island of Bali is the only Hindu society in Southeast Asia. Despite the increase in tourism and traffic over the years, the mountainous areas of the island have not lost any of its magical charm, which still makes Bali one of Peter Langer's favourite destinations anywhere. Add to this the sense of humour of the Balinese and the fact that you are surrounded by their beautiful artistic heritage and you feel that you are in heaven.

Admission: $15 (includes refreshments). Register at 604-925-7270 or online by clicking on the link above. Drop-ins also welcome (space permitting).
