The Faraway Nearby: Photographs of Canada from The New York Times Photo Archive. Curators: Gerald McMaster and Denise Birkhofer. Featuring photographs of Canadian subject matter from The New York Times Photo Archive, The Faraway Nearby examines a century of Canada's history and its representation in the leading American "newspaper of record." Taking an expansive view of the many stories that have shaped our national experience, the exhibition highlights images of major political events and conflicts, iconic landscapes across the nation, sports heroes, candid reportage on the lives of diverse communities, and portraits of notable Canadians. The exhibition draws from nearly 25,000 photographs preserved in The New York Times Photo Archive, known henceforth as The Rudolph P. Bratty Family Collection. This extraordinary new promised gift, made by Toronto entrepreneur Chris Bratty in honour of Canada 150, joins the renowned Black Star Collection to further establish the Ryerson Image Centre as a key international resource for the study of press photography. The Faraway Nearby is accompanied by a heavily-illustrated book, to be distributed worldwide by Black Dog Publishing. Texts by an international team of authors explore how Canada's visual identity in the 20th century was constructed – from within and without – through the dissemination of images in this influential media outlet ... more

The Notman Studio, 1858-1915. Guest curator: Emily McKibbon. This exhibition surveys the diverse production of celebrated photographer William Notman's bustling enterprise, from studio portraiture, to topographical landscapes, to genre scenes of prototypically “Canadian” pastimes. Emigrating from Scotland, Notman opened his first photography studio in Montreal in 1856 and found quick success. Expanding his business to various satellite locations, Notman employed and trained generations of photographers, studio assistants and retouchers. Together they presented a vision of Canada as energetic, young, sublimely beautiful, and deeply wintry, capturing the public's imagination in the years preceding and following Confederation ... more

Dirty and Smiling – new work by Jennifer Nikitin.
Jennifer Nikitin's work challenges the preconceptions of art and craft, pop and high / low art, taking imagery from popular culture and placing it in a different and / or new context. Whether a foot path or super highway, every road takes you someplace new, if you let it.

Gerrard Art Space (GAS) (T.O. Central)
reception 5-8:30pm
Unsettling. Works by Basil AlZeri, Lori Blondeau, Duorama (Paul Couillard and Ed Johnson), Terrance Houle and Lisa Myers. Curated by Bojana Videkanic. To unsettle means to disturb, unnerve, and upset, but could also mean to offer pause for thinking otherwise about an issue, or an idea. This exhibition seeks to unsettle its site – the Doris McCarthy Gallery, the campus of U of T Scarborough, and the suburb of Scarborough itself. The artists in Unsettling offer subtle and not so subtle gestures of reversal, of questioning, of disturbance, inviting viewers to pause and think about the space and place they occupy ... more
