Description

Tanenbaum Lecture with Rafael Goldchain

Rafael Goldchain is a Toronto-based photographer whose diverse work reflects a personal history set across several continents. Born in Chile of Polish-Jewish descent, Goldchain was educated in Israel before moving to Canada in 1976. Over four decades, Goldchain has documented conflict and cultural change in Mexico and Central America, explored the link between identity, memory and history through staged self-portraits, and recorded landscapes and structures as meditations on aging and mortality. In this retrospective talk, Goldchain will discuss his major bodies of work, such as Nostalgia for an Unknown Land and I am My Family.

The Howard and Carole Tanenbaum Lecture Series is co-presented biannually by the Ryerson Image Centre and the Ryerson University School of Image Arts.

Seating is limited, and this event requires registration.
