2007 Lecture

The Constructed Image: A European Perspective

Gladstone Hotel - Ball Room
1214 Queen St. West

Constructed modes of working with photography
are
fundamental for many artists today. Is the
proliferation
of this approach leading to the demise of traditional
photography as we have known it? How do
European
photographers deal with tradition and the
social/political
aspects of their work?

Join us for a lively debate with some of the
leading European
artists, photographers and curators in CONTACT
2007.
Among the participants are Philippe Ramette, an
internationally renowned photo-performance artist
and
sculptor from Paris, and Jonathan de Villiers, an
innovative
fashion photographer who lives in London and
Paris. Both
Ramette and de Villiers are exhibiting their work
through
CONTACT’s public installation program; see Public
Installations for details.

Moderated by William Huffman, Associate Director,
Toronto
Arts Council, and presented by the Consulate of
France in
Toronto.
