Join Gaëlle Morel, RIC Exhibitions Curator, for a behind-the-scenes look at Scotiabank Photography Award: Angela Grauerholz.

On view until August 21, 2016, Scotiabank Photography Award: Angela Grauerholz celebrates Canadian artist Angela Grauerholz. Spanning the 1980s to the present day, the exhibition’s more than seventy works in atmospheric black and white, sepia and colour, evoke the artist’s interest in the persistence yet unreliability of cultural memory—in her words, “a kind of amnesia, a vague recollection of something that can be conjured up, triggered by an event or site, but remains blurred.” A recurrent theme in Grauerholz’s work addresses the specific architecture and distinctive display modes of archives, museums and libraries, questioning their authoritative and traditional representations. The artist also evokes the accumulative practices of collecting institutions through her own selective archives of uncommon subjects, proposing subjective and alternate inventories of the past, challenging and subverting the restricted accessibility of historical and artistic artefacts and locales. The exhibition is presented by Scotiabank, organized by the Ryerson Image Centre, in partnership with the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
