Scotiabank Photography Award: Suzy Lake.
Main Gallery.
Curator: Gaëlle Morel.
This exhibition celebrates the career of Canadian artist Suzy Lake, 2016 Scotiabank Photography Award winner, renowned internationally for her work on self-representation, female identity and the aging body. This survey of more than fifty objects, made between 1976 to 2014, brings focus to Lake's artistic process and methodologies. Including never-before-seen photographs, maquettes and working materials, the exhibition examines this important artist's career of experimentation and unwavering efforts through the years to push the boundaries of the photographic medium. Presented by Scotiabank, organized by the Ryerson Image Centre and a primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

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. A primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

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.

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.

Lori Blondeau: Asiniy Iskwew.
Curator: Bonnie Rubenstein.
Lake Devo, Gould Street and Victoria Street.
In these large-scale self-portraits, Saskatoon-based Cree / Saulteaux / Métis artist Lori Blondeau poses statuesquely on the sites of significant Plains Indigenous rock formations. Adhered to the ancient stones in Devonian Square – imported from the Canadian Shield – the installation is a powerful reminder of Toronto's pre-colonial history and the continuing importance of ancestral gathering places created for sacred ceremonies and for recording histories. Presented in partnership with the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

Frances Ferdinands: Connective Threads brings together many past and recent painting projects for the first time ... more
Frances Ferdinands: Connective Threads brings together many past and recent painting projects for the first time. For three decades, Frances Ferdinands' paintings have explored food, cultural belonging, difference, and women in society. She incorporates elements of her Sri Lankan heritage and touches on themes related to colonialism, cultural identity and migration. As an accomplished painter, Ferdinands creates works that are sometimes ironic, allegorical or witty. She merges popular culture and art history with the world around her, and in so doing, heightens the discontinuities of life in Canada.
Sir Lankan-born, Canadian-trained artist Frances Ferdinands has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Paris, Bogota, Honolulu, the continental U.S. and across Canada. Her work is found in corporate, private and public collections including the Royal Ontario Museum, the Judith & Norman Alix Gallery, and the Robert McLaughlin Gallery. Her paintings are featured in two art books: Rethinking Acrylic, and Acrylic Innovation: 60 Visionary Artists. Originally from Toronto, Ferdinands currently lives and has her studio east of Toronto in the Northumberland Hills. Recently the artist was the winner of the Royal Canadian Mint Competition to design the 2017 Diwali Commemorative Coin.
