AGO Acquires Acclaimed Malcolmson Collection of Photography

TORONTO — The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) has acquired the renowned Malcolmson Collection, a grouping of 268 vintage photographic works by 110 significant 19th- and 20th-century artists. The acquisition was made possible through a donation of photographs by Ann and Harry Malcolmson and a private donation. The Malcolmson Collection is regarded as one of the most important collections of historical photography in private hands in Canada and has been exhibited in Vancouver in 2009, and in Toronto in 2012.

“Harry and Ann Malcolmson are passionate and innovative collectors who believe strongly in the power of art to transform lives,” said Matthew Teitelbaum, Director and CEO of the AGO. “Thanks to their extraordinary generosity, this one-of-a-kind collection will remain in Canada and transform the AGO’s photography holdings. It will spark new approaches to our own collection and open up new ways to represent the art of the 20th century. Already we are developing programming and education initiatives centred on these works, which we now hold in the public trust.”

 “Ann and I are thrilled,” said Harry Malcolmson. “Thanks to the AGO’s intervention, the Collection will not be dispersed and will be publicly available for generations to come.”

The Malcolmson Collection spans the history of photography from inventor William Fox Talbot to Robert Frank and includes representative photographs from each of the significant periods and styles of the history of the medium. It also highlights photographers known for creating a uniquely photographic visual language, including Eugène Atget, Julia Margaret Cameron, Edward Weston, Man Ray, László Moholy-Nagy, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Harry Callahan and John Vanderpant, regarded by the Malcolmsons as Canada’s most important photographer of the modernist period.

The Collection’s importance and special character derives from the decision made by Harry and Ann Malcolmson in the 1980s to refocus their 30-year association with contemporary art—including Harry Malcolmson’s stint as an art critic—to explore the unknown territory of historic photography.
“It was as if we entered a darkened room when we began collecting,” said Harry Malcolmson. “And when the lights went up, we found ourselves in an enchanted room.” Ann Malcolmson added, “That so little attention was paid to such wonderful works of art seemed inexplicable, so we responded. We didn’t collect photography—it collected us.”

Reflecting on their association of over 50 years with the Gallery, Harry Malcolmson remarked, “You can think of Ann and me as AGO ‘lifers.’” The Malcolmsons have donated more than 50 works to the Gallery over that time, including paintings, prints and photographs—most notably the 1856 seascape by Gustave Le Gray, Le Soleil couronné, which was the first work by the artist to enter the AGO’s collection.

“The Malcolmsons have developed the leading private collection of its kind in Canada,” said Maia Sutnik, the AGO’s Curator of Special Photography Projects. “The core of their Collection is supported by exceptional photographs marked by bold experimentation, both historical and contemporary. In many cases, these would be the first or superior examples of works to add to the AGO’s collection, particularly from the early 20th-century modernist period, which is currently a significant gap.”

Offering visitors their first glimpse into the Collection, select works will be on display at the AGO from June 15, 2014, to Jan. 25, 2015. Further details will be announced in the new year.

André Kertész in Exhibition Converging Journeys In The Modernist Age

The two person exhibition André Kertész and Theodore Fried: Coverging Journeys in the Modernist Age will be on display until December 29th.  The exhibition is at the Madelyn Jordon Fine Art in Scarsdale, New York.

"Born in Hungary near the turn of the 20th century, Kertesz the pioneer photographer and Fried, an oil painter and master etcher, were destined to meet and work in Paris, escape the Nazis and the Holocaust and carry on their long and illustrious careers living a half-mile apart in New York’s Greenwich Village. This show evidences their progression, which in essence parallels most of the major art movements of their time."

"The exhibition includes over 35 works of art, which span the artists’ aesthetic journey, from the formative Paris years of the 1920’s -1940 to mature works in the US, from 1940 – 1970’s.  While working in different mediums, the artists shared a deep friendship, similar cultural heritage and took similar paths in their artistic ambitions...."

"Art Toronto Dealer Poll: Hometown Hopes"

"Deciding to do Art Toronto can present a difficult choice for local dealers. Some choose to do the fair, while others try to attract out-of-town visitors to their existing Toronto galleries. Yet others do the fair in alternate years, splitting the difference. Here, five great Toronto galleries who are at the fair this year weigh in with their thoughts...." - Britt Gallpen, Canadian Art

REMINDER! ELAINE STOCKI OPENING TONIGHT! 6PM - 10PM

The gallery is pleased to present our first solo exhibition of work by Elaine Stocki (b. 1979, Winnipeg). In “P.A.,” Stocki questions authenticity and artifice in the photographic medium by combining constructed performance images and documentary photography.

ELAINE STOCKI
P.A.

Gallery One
Exhibition Dates: October 26 – November 23, 2013
Reception for the Artist: Friday, October 25, 6-10pm



Ellice, 2013

“P.A.” (Public Address) consists both of images of models in contrived scenarios and photographs of assemblages of people at events. By presenting these two types of works together, Stocki investigates the truth of the directed image and the artifice behind the documentary photographs and, in broader terms, value in the medium itself. Through both content and process, Stocki’s work exploits the uneasy relationship the photographic medium has with art, hobby and commerce.

K, 2013
Influenced by American street photography, Stocki’s work promotes the belief that photographs of groups of people take the political and social temperature of the moment. She makes meticulously hand-coloured, gelatin silver and chromogenic photographs. Deftly using photographic and cinematic tropes, her images reside in an uneasy territory in which the signifiers that we attach to class and race become uncertain and unknowable.

T, 2013

Stocki received an MFA from Yale University in 2009 and currently lives and works in Canada. Her work has been exhibited across North America, including Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadephia; Zach Feuer, New York and overseas at the Deustche Guggenheim, Berlin.

Note: The price list will be made public on October 25th, during the reception for the artist.

Robert Burley in Maclean's Magazine







"Elegy for the strange death of analog art"

"In 1932, George Eastman, 77 and suffering from a painful spinal disorder, killed himself. He had been one of the great Gilded Age capitalists, the founder of the Eastman Kodak film-making company and lord of Smugtown, as the recession-proof city of Rochester, N.Y., became known..."- Brian Bethune, Maclean's Magazine

AGO - Meet Paul Graham Tonight!


ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO

M E E T  T H E  A R T I S T 
PAUL GRAHAM
THURSDAY,  OCTOBER 17,    7 pm.
Jackman Hall,  AGO


Paul Graham belongs to a generation of photographers who have dominated art photography since the 1980s and whose work has remarkably transformed our understanding of the medium. Graham was one of the first photographers to explore contemporary colour photography within the social documentary idiom. Since his groundbreaking work, Troubled Land ( Northern Ireland, 1984) -  where border and bounders were seen and unseen -  he continued to demonstrate deep commitment and engagement with the medium. Over twenty-five years he has shown his photography to be of the observable world, responding to new artistic spaces by reinvigorating the core of photographic practice, and by broadening its visual language. Graham is not shy to questioning our notions of what photography could say, be, or look like. 

Graham has a long and impressive record of exhibitions, among them, the 49th Venice Biennale (2001), The Tate Gallery’s landmark “Cruel & Tender” (2003), and solo exhibitions at Folkwang Museum, Essen, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2009) . He is the recipient of many distinguished awards, including the Arts Council Publications Award, Eugene Smith Memorial Fellowship, Guggenheim Fellowship, and  2009 he won the coveted Deutsche Borse Photography Prize, and  in 2012 the Hasselblad Foundation International Award.

Graham’s large colour portrait from the series End of an Age, is on view in the exhibition Light by Fire: Some Propositions about Portraits and Photography – Part 1, on view until October 20, 2013, Art Gallery of Ontario.

Members $10.   Public  $12.   Students $8.

Next Exhibition- Brian Duffy: David Bowie

The gallery is pleased to present its first solo exhibition of work by Brian Duffy, featuring his photographs of David Bowie in Gallery Two.

BRIAN DUFFY
David Bowie

Gallery Two
Exhibition Dates: October 26 - November 23, 2013

Aladdin Sane, 1973

Duffy (b. London, 1933 - 2010), along with David Bailey and Terence Donovan, is recognized as one of the innovators of “documentary” fashion photography, a style which revolutionized fashion imagery and the industry. So influential were their images that in 1962 the Sunday Times dubbed Duffy, Bailey and Donovan the “Terrible Trio” and Norman Parkinson called them “The Black Trinity.” Together, they dominated the London photographic scene, constantly pushing each other to new heights.

Between the 1950s and 1970s, Duffy produced an extraordinary body of work spanning all of the photographic genres from portraits to reportage to advertising. Duffy was one of the few photographers to shoot two Pirelli calendars (1965 and 1973) and was a commercial success shooting high profile advertising campaigns for brands like Benson & Hedges and Smirnoff.

Aladdin Sane Contact Sheet, Digital Remaster, 2009

In 1972, Duffy photographed Bowie during his Ziggy Stardust tour and went on to shoot his album cover for Aladdin Sane (1973). The infamous flash on Bowie’s face was a groundbreaking move in the pre-punk era. Bowie was originally inspired by the lightening flash on Elvis’ “taking care of business” ring. Duffy and makeup artist Pierre La Roche recreated the effect with red lipstick based on the logo on a Panasonic rice cooker that was in the studio at the time. Duffy’s original printing of the work used the dye-transfer process, which was one of the most costly forms of printmaking at the time. Bowie and Duffy continued to work together for ten years including the albums Lodger (1979) and Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) (1980).  Overall, Duffy's input had a significant influence on Bowie's public image creation during this period and his photographs continue to be recognizable images in popular culture.


Scary Monsters, Close up with cigarette, 1980

In 1979, Duffy decided to give up photography and burned many of his negatives in his yard. He then moved on to commercials, never to return to the still camera again. The Duffy Archive is made up of negatives and contact sheets that have been retrieved from numerous UK and International magazines and newspapers, such as Vogue, French Elle, Glamour, The Times, The Telegraph, Queen, Town and London Life. Other sources include Duffy’s remaining personal collection and boxes filled with negatives that have been recently discovered and salvaged.

Duffy’s photographs of David Bowie can also be viewed in the Art Gallery of Ontario current exhibition “David Bowie Is,” which will be on display until November 27, 2013.

Robert Burley Solo Exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada


Robert Burley
Disappearance of Darkness

October 18, 2013 - January 5, 2014

"The exhibition Robert Burley: The Disappearance of Darkness examines both the dramatic and historical demise of film-manufacturing facilities and industrial darkrooms. The photographs taken between 2005 and 2010 speak to sites and events related to the key corporations (Kodak, Agfa, llford). As an artist working in photography for the past thirty years, Burley has been both an observer and a participant in this radical transition. This exhibition addresses both the emergence of a new technology, which irrevocably changed photography, as well as the abrupt and rapid breakdown of a century old industry, which embodies the medium's material culture.

Produced and organized by the Ryerson Image Centre."
