In the past week I’ve opened two versions of my exhibition, Robert Burley: The Disappearance of Darkness. Organized by the Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto and curated by Gaelle Morel, this show opened first at Musée Nicéphore Niépce in Chalon-sur-Saône, France. This remarkable museum which celebrates the inventor of photography as well as the medium’s history will be showing the exhibition from Oct. 12th/13 to Jan. 12th/14. My thanks go out to François Cheval / Conservateur en chef and Christelle Rochette / Conservatrice adjointe for their work related to producing a European version of the exhibition.
The National Gallery of Canada has opened the North American version of the exhibition which I produced with the Ryerson Image Centre over the past few months – it will be shown from Oct. 18th/13 to Jan. 5th/14 and has been overseen by NGC Associate Curator, Andrea Kunard. On Saturday, Oct. 26th/13 NGC Director, Marc Mayer will chair a panel discussion with myself, photographer Michel Campeau (who has just opened, Icons of Obsolescence) and curators, Morel and Kunard.
