20th Anniversary: A Group Exhibition Celebrating 20 Years
Please join us in celebrating the 20th anniversary of Stephen Bulger Gallery. We opened on March 23, 1995 and since that time the gallery has exhibited over 130 solo exhibitions, 40 group shows and been host to many book launches and special events. This anniversary exhibition will feature a photograph from every artist for whom we’ve hosted a solo exhibition.
Stephen Bulger (born Toronto, 1964) engaged in photography as a hobby throughout his youth. Eventually studying at Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts, he became interested in the history of photography and began organizing exhibitions. He was the founding director of the Ryerson Gallery (located at 80 Spadina Avenue, Toronto) where he sat on the exhibition review committee and managed over thirty exhibitions.
After graduating from Ryerson in 1991, he worked in the photography department of the Ontario College of Art. While employed there as a Technician, he opened the Stephen Bulger Gallery (700 Queen St. West, Toronto) on March 23, 1995, moving to 1026 Queen Street West in 2004. Since that time he has curated over 130 exhibitions; been the representative for numerous Canadian and international photographers; published catalogues and books; and participated in many North American and European art fairs. He is Past-President of the Board for the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), Washington, D.C.; is a member of the Canadian Cultural Property Review Board; a member of the Advisory Board for the Ryerson Image Centre; and is also a co-founder of CONTACT, Toronto’s photography festival that will celebrate its nineteenth annual event in May, 2015.
