The folks over at Movie Monday are offering a glimpse into the mind of celebrated Canadian artist William Kurelek with a screening of the documentary The Maze, dramatically told through his paintings and on-camera revelations.
The original film by Robert M. Young has been restored and expanded by his sons Nick and Zach Young with a new soundtrack and animation since its 1969 launch.
The Maze takes an intimate look into the life of one of the 20th century’s most fascinating artists and his struggles with attempted suicide and a self professed “spiritual crisis.”
Producer, animator and composer Nick Young and director Robert M. Young will be joining a Q & A after the screening by phone from Los Angeles.
Monday, July 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Eric Martin Theatre (Jubilee Hospital) at 1900 Fort. Admission by donation. Parking in one-hour spots on Lee Ave., are not ticketed during the event.
William Kurelek: The Messenger, a showcase of his career’s work, is on display at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria until Sept. 3.
On Thursday, July 5 chief curator Mary Jo Hughes presents Framing Kurelek, an exhibition tour about Kurelek’s skill as a master framer. 7 p.m. at the AGGV. M
