Through August 25, the Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto is presenting Here and There: Photography and Video Works on Immigration. Examining voluntary immigration, refugees, and first generation immigrants, the exhibition includes images from the Black Star Collection and photographic, new media and video work by contemporary Canadian artists. Artists include Sara Angelucci, Ruth Kaplan, Shelagh Keeley, Meera Margaret Singh and Andrew Suri.

Ryerson Image Centre’s other summer exhibitions also explore place, time and immigration. Gabor Szilasi’s The Eloquence of the Everyday and Arthur S. Goss’ Works and Days are also on view through August 25. Ken Woroner’s Hardscrabble is also being exhibited through July 14 in the student gallery.
