Rosalie Favell | The Search for Life Beyond Our Planet
May 4, 2011 – 3:30pm to 3:45pm
Manitoba Museum Planetarium
As part of Close Encounters: The Next 500 Years, Rosalie Favell’s ﬁlm Search for Life Beyond Our Universe will be shown for one last time at the Manitoba Planetarium on Wednesday, May 4 at 3:30pm.
Rosalie Favell was born and raised in Winnipeg, MB. Much of her work draws upon both her family history and Métis (Cree/English) heritage that goes back many generations in Winnipeg and surrounding areas. She uses many sources to present a complex self-portrait of her experiences as a contemporary Aboriginal woman. In addition to scouring her family albums for visual material, she ﬁnds inspiration in popular culture and has incorporated a number of warrior women from television series and movies into her works. Her recent work undertakes a spiritual quest, drawing upon a number of religions and beliefs. In 1998, she earned an MFA from the University of New Mexico, in Albuquerque.
The event takes place at Manitoba Museum’s Planetarium, 190 Rupert Avenue lower level. Visitors should line up by the Planetarium entrance 15 minutes prior to the presentation.
This event is free, and everyone is welcome.
