Noon Time Collection Talk with Sara Knelman

Thursday, March 22, 12:00 pm
Peter Higdon Research Centre, Ryerson Image Centre
122 Bond Street, room RIC-241

Icons and Activists: Images of Motherhood

What does motherhood look like? Long upheld as symbols of love and protection, how have images of mothers shaped social, political and cultural expectations of this responsibility?

This talk by Sara Knelman, Assistant Professor in the School of Image Arts, will consider these questions using photographs in the RIC collection from the nineteenth century to the 1970s, including Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother and work by the British activist and feminist Jo Spence.

All Noon Time Collection Talks are free and open to the public, and take place in the RIC's Peter Higdon Research Centre (122 Bond Street, second floor, room RIC-241).

While you’re here for the talk, be sure to stop by the RIC to check out our current exhibitions, including:

Collaboration. A Potential History of Photography
Jim Goldberg: Rich and Poor
“Soon we were en route again…”: The Margaret Corry Albums (1947–1963)
Ivan Sigal: Karachi Circular Railway
Petrija Dos Santos: A Labour of Love


Upcoming tours, talks and workshops

March 16–17
RIC Symposium
PHOTOGRAPHY: THE BLACK BOX OF HISTORY
School of Image Arts, 122 Bond Street (IMA-307)
This symposium will investigate how photography is conceptualized as a problem in history today, and how recent technological and epistemological transformations have engendered new approaches. Keynote speaker: Prof. Elizabeth Edwards

April 5, 12:00 pm
Noon Time Collection Talk with Zoë Lepiano
Peter Higdon Research Centre, 122 Bond Street (RIC-241)
Join Zoë Lepiano, recipient of the RIC’s Howard Tanenbaum Research Fellowship in 2017, as she discusses the series Biographies and Album Pages from the Wendy Snyder MacNeil Archive. The talk will consider vernacular, utilitarian and posed photographs, and audio interviews collected by MacNeil throughout the creation of these projects; the ways these objects extend our understanding of MacNeil's practice; and, in turn, how her practice expands and challenges the photographic album in relation to representations of the self.

Collaboration is also accompanied by an active and extensive program of special events curated by Ilana Shamoon with Christine McLean. To view the full list, visit: ryersonimagecentre.ca/exhibition/collaborate

All events take place at the RIC (33 Gould Street), unless otherwise noted.
