Celia Perrin Sidarous: “a shape to your shadow” Presented by Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival 2017

Shifts and changes reverberate within the exhibition a shape to your shadow, as Celia Perrin Sidarous’ spatial interventions unfold in a series of image constellations. The positioning of disparate yet familiar elements throughout the museum creates a simultaneous presence and absence.

Law Students and Lawyers at Vimy – We Remember – April 4-29

 

This exhibition remembers the service and sacrifice of the dozens of law students and lawyers who served at the Battle of Vimy Ridge in April of 1917. Curator Patrick Shea tells the brave and poignant stories of these young men, and reflects upon the Canadian legal profession’s contribution to World War I. The Battle of Vimy Ridge continues to live in the hearts and minds of Canadians, especially during this month of April, in the 100th anniversary year.

The exhibition is in the ballroom of Campbell House Museum, which looks out over Toronto’s legal precinct and Osgoode Hall, home of the Law Society of Upper Canada. It was at this intersection of Queen and University that the City of Toronto originally proposed Vimy Circle, a monumental plan of curved buildings and radiating streets that would have radically altered the city that we know today.

Patrick Shea, LSM is a Partner at Gowling WLG.  He served as an officer in the Canadian Forces Reserves and was the person behind the 2014 grant of honorary calls to 58 Ontario law students killed in World War I.
