SCOTIABANK PHOTOGRAPHY AWARD: ANGELA GRAUERHOLZ

May 4 – August 21, 2016
Main Gallery, Ryerson Image Centre


This survey of more than seventy works, spanning the 1980s to the present, celebrates the career of acclaimed Canadian artist Angela Grauerholz, whose photographs have consistently explored the persistence yet unreliability of cultural memory through representation of archives, libraries and museums. The exhibition is presented by Scotiabank, organized by the Ryerson Image Centre, and is a primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

ANNIE MACDONELL: HOLDING STILL // HOLDING TOGETHER


ANNIE MACDONELL: HOLDING STILL // HOLDING TOGETHER

May 4 – August 21, 2016
University Gallery & Sallah J. Bachir New Media Wall, Ryerson Image Centre


Holding Still // Holding Together originates in images of passive political resistance gathered from the RIC’s Black Star Collection and other sources. At times deceptively peaceful, the photographs express an imbalance and struggle between the police officers and the limp bodies of protestors being forced to move. This is a primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. With the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.

JULIA HENDRICKSON: AS SHE, REHEARSES DISAPPEARANCE

July 20 – August 21, 2016
Student Gallery, Ryerson Image Centre


Fragmented images of a female dancer are projected onto a gallery wall, drawing attention to the instability of photographs, performance, and human memory. As the dancer turns, a string coils around her body and leaves ephemeral imprints on her skin.
