This group exhibition featured nine artists from across the Humber College community and explored the documentation of unexpected experiences that affect memories of a certain time and place. Through an open art call held earlier this year, we asked photographers what it means to create with intention in a world whose priorities and environments may no longer be predictable nor sustainable. And to what extent can these present-day experiences shape their own futures?
Our artists were a mix of emerging and professional photographers, including Humber students, staff, faculty, and alumni. Their installations were dispersed across three locations (Lakeshore, North, and downtown) to not only increase their visibility but to also expose our college community to this annual photography festival.
Humber Galleries would like to thank CONTACT Photography Festival for their ongoing support, as well as Humber Professors David Scott and Lauren Cheong for their assistance during the selection process.
And a heartfelt thank you to our participating artists – your contributions have been incredible, especially as the gallery celebrates its 10-year anniversary!
