About

Overview

The Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival kicks off this year at the Ryerson Image Centre. Please join us on April 28, 7–11pm for the launch of the 2017 Festival and the opening of numerous exhibitions and outdoor installations at Ryerson.

In recognition of the 150th anniversary of confederation, the Festival focuses on Canada through a series of exhibitions, public installations and events. From documentary explorations of the nation’s shifting landscape and inhabitants, to projects that challenge perceptions of history and definitions of photography, CONTACT 2017 presents outstanding projects by established and emerging Canadian artists and curators.

CONTACT is the largest photography event in the world, and a premiere cultural experience in Canada, with over 1500 artists in 200 exhibitions and happenings throughout the month in the Greater Toronto Area. Founded in 1997, CONTACT is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to celebrating and fostering the art and profession of photography.
