  RIC NEWSLETTER

Welcome to the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC). The RIC is an international centre of excellence at Ryerson University, dedicated to the public exhibition, research, study and teaching of photography and related disciplines, including new media, installation art and film.

Guest curated by the AGO's Associate Curator of Photography, Sophie Hackett, and presented by TD Bank Group, What It Means To Be Seen: Photography and Queer Visibility addresses the importance of visibility, long tied to the campaign for greater acceptance of those in the gay community. Also on view is Zanele Muholi: Faces and Phases, which aims to address the representation of black lesbian and queer identity, focusing largely on post-apartheid South Africa. On the Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall, acclaimed Canadian media artists Aleesa Cohene and Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay present the latest instalment of an ongoing collaborative project, The Same Problem 5.

In the student gallery, Wynne Neilly: Female to "Male" is self-portrait project documenting the artist’s transition from female to “male” through weekly photographs, recorded vocal changes, documents and objects that represent a segment or moment in his gender exploration. Also on view is Judy Ruzylo: The Order of Things, a video installation exploring the relations between gender, identity and society, using the observations and lived experience of a diverse group of transgender individuals.

Earlier this summer, the RIC was pleased to be a Major Partner Event of WorldPride 2014 Toronto. Click here for an overview of all upcoming exhibitions.
