Welcome to the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC). The RIC exists for the research, teaching and exhibition of photography and related media.
The gallery is now closed for the installation of our upcoming exhibitions. Please join us for our next public reception on January 21, 2015 at 6pm when we celebrate the opening of the following exhibitions:
Burn with Desire: Photography and Glamour
From iconic studio portraits of Hollywood’s Golden Age to contemporary critiques by artists, this exhibition offers an historical overview of photography’s role in defining a visual lexicon of beauty and allure.
Anti-Glamour: Portraits of Women
A diverse group of artists challenges traditional visual standards that have shaped female identity, recasting the genre of portraiture to claim an alternative presence for women in the public sphere.
Zinnia Naqvi: Seaview
For this 2014 experimental film Seaview (2014), Zinnia Naqvi travelled to her parents' homeland of Karachi, Pakistan to compare childhood memories with lived experience.
