Rafael Goldchain: I Am My Family

I Am My Family: Photographic Memories and Fictions is a family album of traditional portrait photographs with an unconventional twist: the only subject being Goldchain himself. In an elaborate process involving genealogical research, the use of makeup, hair styling, costumes, and props, Goldchain transforms himself into his ancestors and captures their personifications on camera. These constructed self-portraits trace the evolution of Jewish culture from tradition to modernity and invite viewers to engage in the narrative of both family history and memory. Join the artist, Rafael Goldchain, for a discussion on this project’s evolution and process.

Join image-based artist Isabelle Hayeur for a lecture on her work, including her participation in our exhibition, The Edge of the Earth: Climate Change in Photography and Video. Hayeur is best known for her photographs and her experimental videos. She has also realized several site-specific installations and public art commissions. Her work is situated within a critical approach to the environment, urban development and to social conditions. She is particularly interested in the feelings of alienation, uprooting and disenchantment.

FILM SCREENING

Thursday, October 6, 7 pm
FRACTURED LAND
Co-presented with the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University
122 Bond Street, IMA-307

What would it be like to live alongside one of the shapers of human events, in their youth, before they transformed history? In Fractured Land, we follow Caleb Behn, a young Dene lawyer who may become one of this generation’s great leaders, if he can discover how to reconcile the fractures within himself, his community and the world around him, blending modern tools of the law with ancient wisdom. As 350.org founder, Bill McKibben, puts it, "Anyone who can throw a hatchet and sue you is a force to be reckoned with."
