Exhibition : « CANADIAN MODERNISM A Group Exhibition Featuring John Vanderpant & Contemporaries »This exhibition displays vintage prints made by Canadian photographers in the early and mid 20th century, a time when photography was mostly relegated to international salon exhibitions and prize medals were compensation for the lack of a market. In the early part of the medium’s history, photographers mimicked conventions in painting to promote acceptance of photography as a “true art”. By the outbreak of WWI, Americans, such as Paul Strand and Alfred Stieglitz, spearheaded a movement towards straight photography, but pictorial traditions remained influential in photographic circles through the 1950s.
