EXHIBITION PRESENTED FROM NOVEMBER 4, 2016 — MARCH 26, 2017
NOTMAN, A VISIONARY PHOTOGRAPHER
This exhibition will offer a new perspective on the career of William Notman (1826–1891), who became the first Canadian photographer with an international reputation during the nineteenth-century. It will demonstrate how Notman owed his success to the modernity of his approach to photography – an approach founded on principles of communication and innovation.
Organized thematically, the exhibition will feature 285 photographs and objects drawn primarily from the McCord Museum’s collection. While focusing on vintage prints, displays will be supplemented by multimedia installations and interactive devices that provide dynamic contextual information and help clarify nineteenth-century idea of modernity for a contemporary audience.
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Wednesday: 10 a.m to 9 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
