Burning With Desire

Burn with Desire at the Ryerson Image Centre

On view January 21 – April 5, 2015

The Ryerson Image Centre (RIC) plays with ideas of glamour and female representation in two exhibitions on view January to April 2015. Burn with Desire: Photography and Glamour offers a sweeping yet considered view of photography’s role in defining glamour since the 1920s. Approaching female identity from a different angle, Anti-Glamour: Portraits of Women seeks to challenge stereotypes, while claiming an alternative presence for women in the public sphere. Join us for the public opening reception on January 21, 2015 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The Ryerson Image Centre (RIC) exists for the research, teaching and exhibition of photography and related media. We are located at 33 Gould Street, Toronto, in the heart of the Ryerson University campus.

Admission to the gallery is free.

Free exhibition tours daily at 2:30pm.
