RYERSON IMAGE CENTRE

STUDENT INFORMATION

Student Gallery Mandate

Housed within the Ryerson Image Centre, the Student Gallery showcases the work of current students and/or recent alumni* from the Ryerson Community. The Ryerson Image Centre is committed to providing students with a venue and student gallery coordinator to assist in presenting their work to professional standards. Exhibitions are intended to engage in a dialogue with recent issues in contemporary lens-based or new media-based work, presented in the form of thematic, curated, group or solo exhibitions. Student work may be presented in exhibitions that include the work of Ryerson alumni or artists from outside of Ryerson as a way to feature their work in a deeper critical discussion around a given curatorial subject. On occasion, the Student Gallery may include the work of a senior artist in a group exhibition context with student work. Student Gallery programming endeavours to thematically reflect upon or compliment exhibitions in the main gallery space in order to position student work within an international forum. The Student Gallery may also be used for collection based exhibitions curated by students in the curations programs at Ryerson University.

Student Gallery Programming will be developed in a number of ways including:

  • Inviting curators to submit proposals for exhibitions.
  • Curatorial proposals initiated by independent curators (these may include students).
  • Thematic open calls for submissions of work from Ryerson students or recent alumni.
  • Faculty directed or curated projects.
  • Graduating Exhibitions from the Documentary Media MFA program.
  • Exchanges with other educational institutions world-wide.
  • Other to be determined by the Ryerson Image Centre Director and Curator.


*Graduated within the last five years.
