      Group Exhibition
      New Generation Photography Award

      The New Generation Photography Award recognizes outstanding photographic work by three emerging Canadian lens-based artists, age 35 and under. This year’s exhibition features the winners from 2023: Vancouver-based Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez, Toronto-based Hannah Doucet, and Toronto-based Wynne Neilly. A testament to photography’s broad expressive capacity, this selection of artists represents the forefront of new lens-based practices in Canada.

      Jean-François Bouchard
      Exile from Babylon

      In this exhibition, Montreal-born, New York City-based artist Jean-François Bouchard documents a squatters’ camp in the California desert. Depicting trash and debris snagged in the branches of the area’s few trees, each photograph offers a symbolic glimpse into the community’s conditions alongside an immersive three-channel video. The ghostly, post-apocalyptic scenes are a testament to the flagrant inequalities of modern society and its bleak, uncertain future.
