Welcome to the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC). The RIC exists for the research, teaching and exhibition of photography and related media.
The exhibitions below are now on view:
Burn with Desire: Photography and Glamour
From iconic studio portraits of Hollywood’s Golden Age to contemporary critiques by artists, this exhibition offers an historical overview of photography’s role in defining a visual lexicon of beauty and allure.
Anti-Glamour: Portraits of Women
A diverse group of artists challenges traditional visual standards that have shaped female identity, recasting the genre of portraiture to claim an alternative presence for women in the public sphere.
Opening March 4, with a reception from 6 – 8pm:
Manuela Morales: Una Memoria Desconectada
In 1973, a military coup d’état occurred in Chile, launching a seventeen-year dictatorship and ending democratic political progression. The artist’s father, Francisco Morales, was a member of a left-wing party and was arrested, tortured and exiled for his actions. Although estranged from her father for many years, the artist recently travelled to Chile to visit him and create this project.
