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:
Robert Burley: The Disappearance of Darkness is an exhibition curated by Dr. Gaëlle Morel, which examines both the dramatic and historical demise of film-manufacturing facilities and industrial darkrooms and the shift to digital technologies. Burley's work strikes a subtle balance between the commemoration of now obsolete film-based photography materials and the celebration of cutting-edge visual technology.
Guest curated by David Harris, Phil Bergerson: Emblems and Remnants of the American Dream features photographs taken during dozens of extended road-trips, criss-crossing the United States in search of the ‘American Dream.’
Guest curated by Don Snyder and displayed on the Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall, Pierre Tremblay – Black Star Subject: Canada displays every one of the 1,853 photographs filed under the “Canada” subject heading in the Black Star Collection.
Mary Anderson: Wav(e)s presents photographs and sound recordings derived from Lake Ontario, captured with a film camera and an analog tape recorder. Join us for the public opening reception on March 12, 2014, 6-8pm.
FREE exhibitions tours daily at 2:30pm.
