ARCHIVAL POWER: NOON TIME COLLECTIONS TALK, RYERSON IMAGE CENTRE

Event Information:
This talk examined works by contemporary Canadian photographers such as Phil Bergerson, Robert Burley, Rob Gooblar, Jessica McDonald, and Elizabeth Siegfried to unpack the power of "the archive" and how it can shift the ontology of the photographs within it. Parker aims to explore the past and present criteria for how and why these works—outliers amongst the RIC's best-known collections, including the Black Star Collection and individual artist archives—have been acquired.
