"Queering Family Photography" is one of the Toronto Star's Top 5 Must-See Exhibits at Contact 2018

April 26, 2018 by Department of History Staff

Queering Family Photography: Sprung from the ongoing The Family Camera Network Project, which had its first major airing at Contact 2017 with The Family Camera, hosted by the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Mississauga, focused on the role of family photography in the immigrant experience, Queering Family Photography zeroes in on different ideas of family altogether. Culled largely from the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, the images provinces and decades, the images warm in their simple truth — of the intimacy and comfort of nearest and dearest, a universal necessity that knows no gender or orientation. At the Stephen Bulger Gallery, 1356 Dundas St. W., until May 26.

Five great exhibitions to check out at the Contact Photography Festival
