SPECIAL EVENTS

Artist Lecture: Mark Ruwedel

Artist Lecture: Mark Ruwedel
Tuesday, May 5, 2015, 7pm
Ryerson University
350 Victoria Street, LIB-72


Join 2014 Scotiabank Photography Award winner Mark Ruwedel for a discussion on his recent work and artist practice. Mark Ruwedel (b. 1954, American, Canadian citizen) has become one of Canada’s most respected landscape photographers during a career spanning three decades. Working primarily in the western territories of the United States and Canada, Ruwedel documents traces and imprints of human activity on the earth. He describes the process as “an inquiry into the histories, cultural and natural, of places that reveal the land as both a field of human endeavour and an agent of historical processes.” 

The lecture is presented in conjunction with the Scotiabank Photography Award: Mark Ruwedel exhibition, on view at the RIC from April 29 to June 28, 2015. Arrive early to ensure seating!
