Mozart’s The Magic Flute

DATES: April 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 2013

TIMES: 7:30 P.M. (*with the exception of Sunday, April 7 matinee at 3 P.M.)

Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an enchanting romp through a fairly-tale land in which dragons and spirits roam
and perseverance is rewarded by true love. A magical tale that delights audiences of all ages, The Magic
Flute is a wonderful adventure for the whole family.

One of the most-performed operas worldwide, The Magic Flute is perhaps Mozart’s greatest popular
success. It tells the tale of a prince, Tamino, who is sent by The Queen of the Night to rescue her daughter
Pamina from her nemesis Sarastro. Accompanied by the endearingly incorrigible Papageno and with the aid
of a magic flute, the besotted Tamino ventures into the temple and quickly finds that all is not as it seems. TICKET PRICES: $35 – $155.

HUMAN RIGHTS, HUMAN WRONGS

Featuring 316 original prints from the prestigious Black Star Collection, HUMAN RIGHTS HUMAN WRONGS uses the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a point of departure to examine whether images of political struggle, suffering and victims of violence work for or against humanitarian objectives, especially when considering questions of race, representation, ethical responsibility and the cultural position of the photographer.

Curated by Mark Sealy, Director of Autograph ABP in London, England, HUMAN RIGHTS HUMAN WRONGS begins circa 1945 and includes well-known Civil Rights Movement events such as the Selma to Montgomery March and Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The exhibition also features images of the independence movements in African countries including Kenya, Algeria, Chad, and Congo; portraits of Nobel Peace Prize winners Lester B. Pearson, Yasser Arafat, and René Cassin; images of protests in locations such as Berkeley, Chile, and Argentina; and war and conflict from the Vietnam War to the Rwandan Genocide in 1994.

Through HUMAN RIGHTS HUMAN WRONGS, we see the wide dissemination of photographic images of humankind in abject, euphoric or violently explicit conditions, and examine how these images assist us in understanding the case for human and civil rights. Made possible by the generous support of TD Bank Group, with additional funding from the Paul J. Ruhnke Memorial Fund, the Howard and Carole Tanenbaum Family Charitable Foundation and Ryerson University, the exhibition is a collaboration with Autograph ABP (supported by Arts Council England). HUMAN RIGHTS HUMAN WRONGS will be on view in the Ryerson Image Centre Main Gallery January 23 – April 14, 2013.

Alfredo Jaar: The Politics of Images

Alfredo Jaar: The Politics of Images curated by Gaëlle Morel, exhibitions curator at the RIC, addresses political concerns and the relationship between ethics and aesthetics. The Chilean-born, New York-based, Jaar highlights ignored contemporary tragedies such as genocides, epidemics, and famines, to promote cultural change.In his works “Searching for Africa in LIFE” (1996) and “From Time to Time” (2006), Jaar displays covers of news magazines to analyze the lack of visibility and the visual clichés about Africa disseminated in Western culture.

The artist’s three-channel video “We Wish to Inform You That We Didn’t Know” (2010), his most recent project on the genocide in Rwanda, acts as an epilogue to “The Rwanda Project, 1994-2000″, a series of twenty-five artworks developed to critique the world’s indifference and inaction to that mass murder. Alfredo Jaar: The Politics of Images will be on view in the Ryerson Image Centre University Gallery January 23 – April 14, 2013.

Clive Holden: UNAMERICAN UNFAMOUS

Clive Holden asks, “Is it un-American to be un-famous? Are Americans failures if they die without fame?” Drawing from the Black Star Collection at Ryerson University, he creates UNAMERICAN UNFAMOUS using the “un-famous” as an organizing principle in his selection of one hundred image details and faces. Plucked from obscurity, these people can be found in the backgrounds of famous photographs, or simply hidden in the depths of a photographic archive. At times they are literally seen over the shoulders of celebrities in the iconic photographs that capture the “American Century”.

The work’s media tile construction is made with a hybrid adaptation of photographic, cinematic, and web tools. It also uses film leader as raw material (the beginning and end pieces of film reels). With a complex series of randomizing algorithms, these film loops are juxtaposed and continually remixed with the “unsung human leaders” found in the Black Star Collection, as well as with photographs of local un-famous un-Americans nominated by members of the general public.

The work will evolve over the course of the exhibition as more images are submitted via social media. Clive Holden: UNAMERICAN UNFAMOUS is curated by Gaëlle Morel, and will be on view on the Ryerson Image Centre’s Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall January 23 – April 14, 2013.

Uncanny

The artists in this exhibition have an investigative outlook and continue to be informed by historical process of the
image in a contemporary and thought-provoking way. Sound, Video, Photography and the view’s own memory provide an image-based
platform for exploring the metamorphosis of the uncanny, a term that Sigmund Freud used to describe a psychological feeling
between terror and fascination. The uncanny is supernatural and fascinating leaving us feeling disturbed in a state of wonderment
and fear.

Sweetness of the Work

Sweetness of the Work is part of a collection exploring the possibilities fo crystalline forms in the lace work. In this installation,
Mississauga-based Noelle Hamlyn works with cotton thread embroidered to create web like structures which are then exposed to a saline solution.
This process encourages the formation of crystals. The evapouration rate, sun exposure, temperature, salt type and saturation of the solution
were varied to create this delicate lace form, floating in space. The process, as well as the nature of the resulting salt crytals on the
embroidered surface creates an apt metaphor for the accumulation of stitches, labour and the hours invested in traditional women’s hand work.
Sweetness of the Work is an homage to the salt tears of the seamstress, as if a gentle meditation on the loss of traditional hand skills. It
also speaks to the hierarchical structures that shape our perception of “women’s work” exposing cloth and lace work as a sociopolitical medium
of contemporary relevance.
