Welcome to the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC). The RIC exists for the research, teaching and exhibition of photography and related media.

The gallery is now closed for installation and will re-open on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 with a season of exhibitions entitled Power to the People: Photography and Video of Repression and Black Protest.

These include:

ATTICA, USA 1971: IMAGES AND SOUNDS OF A REBELLION
Including extraordinary photo-reportage alongside a range of popular art, this exhibition recounts the notorious 1971 insurrection at Attica Correctional Facility in western New York State, and the multivalent cultural response that followed.

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, 1963: DAWOUD BEY / BLACK STAR
Dawoud Bey’s photographic portraits commemorating the victims of the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, are contextualized alongside photojournalistic prints from the RIC’s Black Star Collection.    

ADAM PENDLETON: MY EDUCATION, A PORTRAIT OF DAVID HILLIARD
Revisiting a 1968 gun battle between California police and America’s Black Panther Party, Adam Pendleton’s video draws on eyewitness accounts to raise questions about an event that continues to reverberate deeply today.
