Boxers and Jazz: The Photojournalism of Stanley Kubrick
May 4 - June 3, 2007

The Godfrey Dean Art Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition Boxers and Jazz: The Photojournalism of Stanley Kubrick, featuring photography by the acclaimed feature film director.

Before starting his career in film, Kubrick spent five years working as a photographer for Look magazine. During that time 1,000 of his photographs were published by this major international U.S. magazine.

Kubrick went on to direct some of the 20th century’s most memorable films including 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), A Clockwork Orange (1971), The Shining (1980) and Full Metal Jacket (1987). He is renowned as a fiercely independent director, an originator who never attended film school and never worked his way up in the film industry.

For this exhibition, University of Regina media studies professor Dr. Philippe Mather has assembled a series of seven spreads from Look magazine stories, along with a number of unpublished photographs. It encourages the viewer to consider the connection between the photo essay and feature film. Look magazine had a mission to inform and entertain its readers, echoed by Kubrick in his films with their combination of documentary and fictional approaches to visual story telling.

It is all the more remarkable that Kubrick started to photograph for Look immediately after high school and completed much of this work while still a teenager.

Rick Rivet Paintings 2000 - 2005
April 19 to May 22, 2007

The Godfrey Dean Art Gallery is pleased to announce its newest exhibition, Rick Rivet Paintings 2000 - 2005. This exhibition presents 21 paintings by renowned British Columbia-based Rick Rivet and constitute a survey of the artist's work over the last five years. Born and raised in Canada's Northwest Territories, Rivet's artistic practice has been primarily influenced by his experience of the rich diversity of Inuit, Indian and Metis culture. Playful and evocative, Rivet's visionary canvases portray archetypal forms, expressive surfaces and finely tuned colour.
