Join us on Wednesday, June 18, from 5:30pm to 8pm for a public reception to celebrate our summer exhibitions.
What It Means To Be Seen: Photography and Queer Visibility. Guest curated by the AGO's Associate Curator of Photography, Sophie Hackett, this exhibition addresses the importance of visibility, long tied to the campaign for greater acceptance of those in the gay community.
Also on view is Zanele Muholi: Faces and Phases, which aims to address the representation of black lesbian and queer identity, focusing largely on post-apartheid South Africa. Join us for a free lecture with Muholi on June 17, 7:30pm at the Ryerson Image Centre.
On the Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall, acclaimed Canadian media artists Aleesa Cohene and Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay present the latest instalment of an ongoing collaborative project, The Same Problem 5.
Finally, using the artists own body as both conduit and canvas, Julie Gemuend: Imprint explores the intrinsic nature of this dynamic by imprinting the desert landscape onto human flesh.
This summer, the RIC is pleased to be a Major Partner Event of WorldPride 2014 Toronto.
