Captive State is an exhibition of photographs taken by Dominic Nahr during two trips to Somalia. In August 2011, Nahr traveled to Mogadishu with Alex Perry (TIME’s Africa Bureau Chief) to document the famine in Southern Somalia. They found overwhelming suffering and death; approximately 150,000 of the 2.8 million Somalis affected eventually starved to death. Almost as appalling was the knowledge that a US anti-terrorism policy unwittingly blocked aid to the famine areas for years. Perry writes, “If drought set the conditions for last year’s famine in East Africa, it was man who ensured it.”
When Nahr and Perry returned to Mogadishu the following year, the improvements were tangible, but as Perry states, “If Mogadishu was enjoying its longest sustained peace in 21 years of civil war, you couldn’t mistake that for a return to normality.”A TIME Contract Photographer and Magnum Photos Nominee, Dominic Nahr graduated from the photography program at Ryerson University in 2008. Dominic Nahr: Captive State will be on view in the Ryerson Image Centre’s Student Gallery January 23 – March 10, 2013.

Forget about the dinosaurs you know… this is a whole new breed of beast. Mark your calendars for the biggest and best dinosaur exhibition ever mounted in Canada!
Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana features dinosaurs you’ve never seen before, displayed in ways you’ve never seen before. Created by the ROM, this new exhibition makes its world premiere in Toronto on June 23.
This scientifically rigorous, cutting-edge exhibition is based on ground-breaking new research and takes you on a journey through the ancient land of Gondwana. Meet the world’s largest and strangest dinosaurs as you journey back in time to the Mesozoic era and learn how continental drift supported the evolution of these bizarre creatures in what is modern-day Africa, Madagascar and South America.
Not only will you experience new dinosaurs – you’ll experience them in new ways. This exhibition includes cutting-edge augmented reality technology, that layers virtual experiences over the real environment. Three innovative iPad stations allow you to experience dinosaurs in surprising ways, including virtually fleshing out a dinosaur skeleton.
This exhibition features modern masterworks from 1909 until 1971. It was a period of great change in the world: the rapid rise of the car, the Great Depression’s economic turmoil, the devastation of two world wars, the advance of television and computers, the civil rights movement. Living the seismic shifts that surrounded them, the artists in this exhibition experimented with unique ways of seeing and explored new ideas about the nature of materials and the nature of artmaking itself. Artists expressed their inner visions, investigated social issues and created new languages of visual expression, with each generation ambitiously building upon and challenging the art that had come before.
With events for all ages, we combine the excitement of all the arts on the last Sunday of the month from October to March with interactive, innovative family activities to engage and delight all ages throughout the studio and gallery.
