      Sharing the Frame: Photographic Objects from the Lorne Shields Historical Photograph Collection (1840–1970)

      This exhibition presents 19th and 20th century vernacular objects from the Lorne Shields Historical Photograph Collection at Toronto Metropolitan University’s Libraries. Donated in 2009, the collection comprises over 2,300 photographic objects, including snapshots, albums, cartes-de-visite, and lantern slides, depicting travel views, recreational and educational scenes, and family portraits. Together, these objects reveal a Western colonial desire for visual consumption in domestic, public, and commercial settings.

      Jane Jin Kaisen
      Braiding and Mending

      The two-channel video Braiding and Mending features South Korean-Danish artist Jane Jin Kaisen sitting with her sisters and nieces in a circle, the camera revolving around them in calm, meditative movements. Each participant combs and braids the hair of the woman in front of her, connecting them all in a perpetual cycle. The braiding becomes a memory-making gesture, and a process of mutual care and healing.

      Jin-me Yoon
      Scotiabank Photography Award

      Korean-born, Vancouver-based artist Jin-me Yoon reflects critically upon the construction of national and diasporic identities in relation to her personal experience and broader geopolitical contexts. Winner of the Scotiabank Photography Award (2022), she repurposes visual stereotypes and dominant narratives to explore gender, culture, and citizenship in a globalized era, reframing some of today’s most pressing issues, including the impacts of colonialism, militarization, displacement, and environmental devastation.
