Talk: DalĂ­ and Mathematics with Dr. Tim Rogalsky

Wednesday November 26 at 12pm

At a time of increasing “conflict” between science and religion, the late work of Salvador Dalí is frequently marked by a delightful fusion of the two. This talk will pay particular attention to the creative and fruitful – yet paradoxical – interplay between mathematics and mysticism. Discover the Dalí who once said, “I believe in God but I have no faith. Mathematics and Science tell me that God must exist but I don’t believe it.”

 

Talk: Gilbert Gignac Public Lecture on Peter Rindisbacher

Sunday November 30 at 2pm

The 200th anniversary of the arrival of Peter Rindisbacher to Canada is fast approaching. The Swiss- born artist, best known for his watercolour paintings and prints of pre-Confederation Manitoba, arrived with his family to the Red River Settlement, present-day Winnipeg, in 1821. In advance of this anniversary, the Ottawa-based art historian Gilbert Gignac is delivering a public lecture at the WAG on Rindisbacher, with new research that promises to transform our previous perceptions of the artist. Gignac will discuss new in-depth laboratory readings of Rindisbacher's work that reveal never before seen aspects of his creative practices, revealing hidden motives.
