Max Dean: As Yet Untitled. Curator: Gaëlle Morel. Max Dean's As Yet Untitled (1992-1995) explores issues surrounding the viewer's responsibility for culture and memory, through an interactive experience where gallery visitors can instruct a factory automaton to save endangered family photographs. Composed of an industrial arm, conveyer belt, paper shredder, and two silhouetted hands, Dean's mechanized robot is programmed to pick up a 4" x 6" photograph from a hopper and present it to the viewer as a final step before it is discarded – allowing the audience to decide which images will survive, and which will be lost to history.

Souvenir: Kent Monkman, Caroline Monnet, Jeff Barnaby, Michelle Latimer. Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall. Souvenir presents four short films addressing Indigenous identity and representation through reworked material from the National Film Board's archives. Using montage, intercutting and juxtaposition, First Nations and Métis artists Kent Monkman, Caroline Monnet, Jeff Barnaby, and Michelle Latimer explore and deconstruct cinematic stereotypes and interrogate history. These short collage films, each derived from a distinct artistic vision, explore Canada's complicated past – recasting documentation into critical inquiry and shining a harsh light on official inhumanity, appropriated iconography, and the politics of representation. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada and a primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival ... more

Spotlight Canada: Faces That Shaped a Nation. North and west façades of Ryerson Image Centre.
On the occasion of Canada's sesquicentennial, the RIC honours the country's culture with this photographic mural highlighting key figures who helped establish our national identity through their endeavours and resilience. These 14 portraits, arrayed across the RIC's west and north façades, mark the arrival of a new promised gift to Ryerson University – nearly 25,000 photographs of Canadian personalities and events from the 20th century, preserved in The New York Times Photo Archive. Acquired by real estate entrepreneur Chris Bratty and donated as an act of cultural repatriation, the Rudolph P. Bratty Family Collection further establishes the RIC as an important destination for the study of press photography.
This historical panorama (including images of Margaret Atwood, John Candy, Leonard Cohen, Viola Desmond, Chief Dan George, Wayne Gretzky, Yousuf Karsh, k. d. lang, Marshall McLuhan, Oscar Peterson, Mary Pickford, Buffy Sainte-Marie, David Suzuki, and Pierre Elliott Trudeau) symbolizes the diverse generations who have exemplified Canadian achievement. When the RIC first opened in September 2012, the building's façade depicted important North American and European cultural icons. These portraits were drawn from the Black Star Collection of photojournalism, which, despite its rich representation of 20th-century history, includes few images of Canada. The recent arrival of these Canadian photographs from The New York Times Photo Archive provides an ideal opportunity to exchange the first mural for a new one – a glass vista that celebrates the primacy and eminence of our nation's own history and culture. Curated by the Ryerson Image Centre, designed by Kelsey Blackwell and presented in partnership with the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival and Ryerson University ... more

Shelley Niro: Battlefields of My Ancestors. Curator: Bonnie Rubinstein. Flower bed alongside Egerton Ryerson statue, Gould Street at Bond Street. In her ongoing photographic series, Shelley Niro (Mohawk, Turtle Clan) documents the historic battlefields that hold significance for her people. Following the migration route of the Six Nations from upstate New York to southern Ontario – which began during the American Revolutionary War – she captures signs, memorials and landscapes. Situated alongside pre-existing plaques that describe Ryerson University's origins, her images offer a complex perspective on "official" histories. A two-venue installation presented in partnership with the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival and Fort York National Historic Site ... more
