Join us for a reception on Wednesday, January 24, 6:00–8:00pm to celebrate a new season of exhibitions at the Ryerson Image Centre

This winter, the RIC challenges the status quo with a series of experimental shows that confront the traditional power dynamic between photographer and subject.

Exhibitions on view January 24 – April 8, 2018:

Collaboration: A Potential History of Photography
This exhibition and collaborative laboratory reconsider photography through the lens of collaboration, suggesting that the medium—traditionally understood as one dominated by singular creative adventurers—is in fact defined by collaboration and interaction. Created by Ariella Azoulay, Wendy Ewald, Susan Meiselas, Leigh Raiford and Laura Wexler, the exhibition is presented in partnership with Brown University, University of California, Berkeley, Ryerson University and Yale University, with support to the RIC from The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, New York and media sponsor Toronto Star.

Jim Goldberg: Rich and Poor
From 1977 to 1985, photographer Jim Goldberg worked with both impoverished and affluent residents of California’s San Francisco Bay area to realize the series Rich and Poor. His powerful portraits, inscribed with revealing self-observations by the people he photographed, captured the social and economic divide increasingly prevalent in the United States that has only intensified today. Media sponsor: Toronto Star.

“Soon we were en route again…”: The Margaret Corry Albums (1947–1963)
Through an exploration of photographic albums compiled from 1947 to 1963 by Canadian expatriate Margaret Corry, this exhibition reveals a compelling personal narrative set against a backdrop of complex geopolitical and colonial change. Presented by second-year students from Ryerson University’s Film and Photography Preservation and Collections Management program, in collaboration with the Royal Ontario Museum, The Family Camera Network, Western University and the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University.

Ivan Sigal: Karachi Circular Railway
This multi-channel installation documents the derelict structures and disordered surroundings of the Karachi Circular Railway, a now-defunct commuter train that once connected the disparate neighbourhoods of Pakistan’s largest metropolis.


Also on view in the RIC Student Gallery, January 24 – February 25, 2018:

Jorge Ayala: A Su Propio Ritmo (At Its Own Rhythm)
This is the first of a series of installations that explore the documentary heritage of Latin America as reflected on UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register. Established in 1992, the Register is an international initiative dedicated to the protection of the world’s documentary heritage.
