Bratty NYT Photo Collection at Ryerson
Dr Denise Birkhofer of Ryerson University

Come out and listen to Dr Birkhofer speak on the Canadian Photographs in the Bratty Family New York Times (NYT) Collection at Ryerson University’s Ryerson Image Centre.

Denise Birkhofer (PhD, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, United States) is the Collections Curator and Research Centre Manager at the Ryerson Image Centre. Her scholarship addresses such topics as Mexican street photography, contemporary Latin American art, and female artists.

Most recently, she co-curated the exhibition “The Faraway Nearby: Photographs of Canada from the New York Times Photo Archive.” In her previous capacity as Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College, Ohio, she organized exhibitions on the work of Hugo Brehme, Judit Reigl, Brett Weston, and Fred Wilson, among others.

NOTE: This talk was originally planned for the Ryerson Image Centre and will now be at our regular location, Gold Room, basement  North York Public Library. The public is always welcome. Go to our Programs page for directions.
