Next Exhibition: Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows, Opening July 25

Stephen Bulger Gallery is proud to present the first Canadian exhibition of photographs by Vivian Maier.

VIVIAN MAIER: Out of the Shadows
Exhibition Dates: July 25 – September 14, 2013

Opening Reception: Thursday, July 25, 5-9pm

Lecture & Book Signing:  Please join us at 6pm for a Lecture by Richard Cahan, author of “Out of the Shadows” (co-authored by Michael Williams, CityFiles Press, 2012). RSVP by calling the gallery at (416) 504-0575 or email us at info@bulgergallery.com as seating is limited. A Book Signing will follow during the Opening Reception.

 “Out of the Shadows” features a selection of Maier’s photographs from the 1950s through the 1970s, which was a highly creative period in her life.

 
Wilmette, IL (Self-Portrait, Full-Length Shadow), 1968

In addition to Maier’s characteristic street portraiture, this exhibit will feature a prolific catalog of images that show an artist with relentless curiosity that worked in a vast range of subjects and styles. Maier’s unique ability to brilliantly capture the zeitgeist is particularly apparent in shots of Chicago’s famous Maxwell Street and in protest scenes taken during the social unrest of 1968.

 
Chicago (Woman with Pearls), 1967
Chicago (Family Standing Near CTA Bus), circa 1965

Maier’s work was discovered in 2007 when boxes of 20,000 black and white negatives, colour slides, undeveloped film and vintage prints were discovered in a storage locker and sold at auction in Chicago. Jeffrey Goldstein eventually acquired his collection from several of the original buyers. Since its discovery, Maier’s work has been exhibited all over the world.

 
Chicago (Military Line, Civilians), 1968.

Born in New York, Maier was raised in France until returning to New York City in 1951, where she began taking photographs with the Rolleiflex, often shooting a full roll of film a day. She moved to Chicago in 1956, and spent the next 40 years as a nanny, dying at the age of 83 in 2009 before her work was exhibited.
Winnetka, IL (Interior with Telephone), April 1968
