Humber Galleries Presents "How to Remember for the Future"

Humber Galleries is pleased to announce the opening of a new, college-wide exhibition on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, as part of this year’s CONTACT Photography Festival

This group exhibition is called How to Remember for the Future and invites nine artists from the Humber College community to explore the documentation of unexpected experiences that affect their 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 nine selected artists are a mix of emerging and professional photographers, and include Humber students, staff, faculty, and alumni. Their installations have been dispersed across three campuses (Lakeshore, North, and Downtown) to not only increase their visibility but to also expose our entire college community to this event.  

Humber Galleries would like to thank Photography Professors David Scott and Lauren Cheong for their ongoing support and assistance during the selection process.  

The opening of this exhibition also marks a very important milestone for Humber Galleries, as we celebrate our TEN year anniversary this month! So keep an eye out for future exhibitions, programs, and announcements, we promise exciting times ahead!
