Scotiabank Photography Award: Shelley Niro
This exhibition celebrates the career of Shelley Niro, winner of the 2017 Scotiabank Photography Award, known for challenging stereotypes and exploring notions of culture and identity with sensitivity and humour. A member of the Six Nations Reserve, Bay of Quinte Mohawk, Turtle Clan, Niro combines beadwork designs, archival images, family pictures, videos, and installation to question traditional representations of Indigenous peoples, with a particular focus on womanhood. This exhibition is presented by Scotiabank and organized by the Ryerson Image Centre in partnership with the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

Nadia Myre: Acts that Fade Away
On view on the RIC’s Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall, this silent video features the artist’s hands and forearms filmed from above as she carefully manipulates the needles, threads, patterns, beads, and tools necessary to craft four Indigenous-inspired objects. These include a pair of baby moccasins, a small basket, a woman’s hair bonnet, and a bandolier bag—guided only by instructions pulled from nineteenth-century women’s magazines. Through the reappropriation of instructions and gestures drawn from European and North American illustrated publications, Myre reclaims Indigenous skills and crafts devalued by colonization. A primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

Scott Benesiinaabandan
newlandia: debaabaminaagwad
Scott Benesiinaabandan (Obishikokaang Anishinaabe First Nation) explores the historical complexities that are often buried under the metaphorical weight of monuments that commemorate colonial stories. As part of his ongoing series newlandia: debaabaminaagwad, fragmented patterns are conformed to the irregular surfaces of the boulders in nearby Devonian Pond, recalling Indigenous petroglyphs and ancient ceremonial sites. Benesiinaabandan’s installation offers a new interpretation of this historically-charged site, framing powerful and imaginative trajectories for a possible future. A public installation of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

Also on view in the RIC Student Gallery

Ryan Walker: Voices in the Wilderness
On view until June 10, this exhibition documents one small island in the Salish Sea, British Columbia, a remote community that is home to 350 people who live off-grid.
