Gaëlle Morel Appointed First Curator of Toronto's Ryerson Image Centre

"The Ryerson Image Centre is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Gaëlle Morel as the gallery’s first curator. Dr. Morel’s exhibition history to date has been international in scope, including numerous shows in Paris, Montreal and Toronto. Her exhibition projects and publications bring together a solid understanding of historical and contemporary art practices, with a strong focus on photography and photojournalism, while developing thematic approaches that speak to modern audiences in new and exciting ways.

Gaëlle Morel’s role as curator will significantly influence the development of the Ryerson Image Centre (formerly known as the Ryerson Gallery and Research Centre), scheduled to open in September 2012. Gaëlle Morel will share the responsibility for developing a challenging and relevant long term exhibition plan with Ryerson Image Centre Director, Doina Popescu. In addition to developing and executing exhibitions, installations and educational programs, Ms. Morel will curate and co-curate exhibitions, and collaborate with organizers, guest curators, and a variety of local, national and international institutions. Gaëlle Morel is currently curating an exhibition that takes a fresh look at the work of renowned American photographer Berenice Abbott for the Jeu de Paume in Paris, France, and the Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto. The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive catalogue." - Ryerson University
