Abstract (English)

"Drawn from three existing collections—the personal collection of Dr. John O’Brian, the research archive compiled from public holdings by Dr. Marcia Crosby and the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery’s permanent collection—the exhibition examines how readily photography attends these sites of public communion, and how cameras influence the events that unfold in and upon them. Parades, racetracks, test sites, hockey games, train platforms, markets, public parks, highways and the university appear across these collections as spaces where self-fashioning and self-surveillance meet, and where the intersecting forces of colonialism, capitalism, nationalism and patriarchy play out through the bodies that assemble there." -- p. 14 of the document.
