Ryerson University has given over its Devonian Square during Scotiabank’s Contact Photography Festival to Lori Blondeau’s ‘Rock Woman’ (translated from the Cree language).
The images are adhered to 2-billion-year-old boulders transported from the Canadian Shield to downtown TORONTO. This points to issues of displacement, environmental preservation, indigenous history and connection to the land.
Adjacent to Devonian Square is the Ryerson Image Centre at 33 Gould Street. RIC is presenting three special exhibits, including photographs by Suzie Lake, which will continue until mid-August. Admission is free. Closed on Mondays. For the details go to http://www.ryerson.ca/ric
