[POSTPONED] Noon Time Collection Talk with Christopher Varley and Paul Roth

Join local collector and former curator Christopher Varley in conversation with RIC Director Paul Roth, as they discuss a transformative acquisition of Canadian photography. In 2019, Varley generously donated over 500 photographs from his personal collection to the RIC. Created by various Canadian makers from the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, these photographs document a wide range of subjects across the nation. This month’s Noon Time Collection talk will explore how Varley acquired pictures over time, as well as the complexities of building a comprehensive collection of historical Canadian photography.  

This event has been postponed. A new date will be announced shortly.
