  RIC NEWSLETTER

Welcome to the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC). The RIC is an international centre of excellence at Ryerson University, dedicated to the public exhibition, research, study and teaching of photography and related disciplines, including new media, installation art and film.

The following exhibitions are currently on view at the Ryerson Image Centre:

To mark the centennial of WWI, we are proud to present DISPATCH: War Photographs in Print, 1854 – 2008. Curated by Dr. Thierry Gervais, the exhibition examines how the photographic representation of war has evolved dramatically in the Western press over the past 150 years.

Alongside this major exhibition, we present two contemporary video works. Serious Games I – IV, by German artist Harun Farocki, who passed away suddenly this July, explores the use of virtual reality and gaming technology in U.S. military recruitment, training and after-action therapy, revealing fundamental links between technology and violence in a time of war. Drone Wedding, a newly-commissioned work by acclaimed Toronto artist collective Public Studio, uses drone technology to provoke conversations about surveillance and conflict.

In the student gallery, Toronto-based artist and writer Sam Cotter works across photography, film, installation and sculpture to examine issues of visual representation.

And – opening later this fall on November 5, Remembering the Real Winnie features the archives of Canadian soldier and veterinarian Harry Colebourn (1887–1947), the owner of the bear that inspired AA Milne’s world famous Winnie the Pooh books.
