“Hidden Mother” included in “Collaboration. A Potential History of Photography”

January 24 – April 8, 2018
Main Gallery, Ryerson Image Centre

An exhibition and collaborative laboratory at the Ryerson Image Centre
A project by Ariella Azoulay, Wendy Ewald, Susan Meiselas, Leigh Raiford and Laura Wexler

This experimental exhibition reconsiders photography through the lens of collaboration, suggesting that the medium—traditionally understood as one dominated by singular creative adventurers—is in fact defined by collaboration and interaction. For Collaboration, a team of artists, scholars, and curators have come together to create an exhibition, installing a gridded repertoire of approximately ninety photographic projects from different places and moments. These projects exemplify various types of collaboration—whether friendly and cooperative, or antagonistic and coercive—between photographers, photographed persons, and other participants. Designed to be open-ended, Collaboration invites visitors to participate in the reshaping of photographic meanings through an active program of conversations, encounters, and workshops.
