Experience the diversity of Canadian photographic practice and production from 1960 to 2000 in this exhibition organized by the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada.
Drawing from the collections of the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada, this exhibition celebrates the diversity of photographic production in Canada between 1960 and 2000. This period experienced an enormous growth in the practice, collection and display of photography. Whether in the form of fine art prints, documents or conceptual art components, the medium was especially adept at articulating the role of art and the artist in modern society, as well as differing ideas of identity, sexuality and community. With nearly 100 photographs by 71 different artists represented, this exhibition is formulated around themes such as conceptual, documentary, urban landscape, portrait and landscape photography, it investigates how certain ideas of photography both endure and change across decades.
