Toronto Convention. About Photographic
Collections: Definitions, Description, Access
Location: George Vari Engineering and Computing
Centre- Ryerson Atrium, Ryerson University, 3rd
Floor, 245 Church St. Toronto, ON
Program and Speakers are Subject to Change
Photographic collections and photographic objects
are questioning and challenging curators,
collectors and photographic dealers in their daily work.
Art historians have long been faced with having
to identify the hand of the master painter or
sculptor among those of his/her students; in the
same regard, photographic historians are now
working with portraits from Nadar's studio and
images by Man Ray printed long after his death.
This issue of authorship raises the question of
object/image dating: How does one write a proper caption?
Photography questions the idea of the original,
which is very important to the process of
collecting: Should one collect negatives or
prints? Which prints should be collected? In the
last two decades, questions related to this
multifaceted aspect of the photographic object
have generated extensive research about the
appropriate vocabulary used to describe
photographs: a vocabulary that would evade
photographic ubiquities and which would
facilitate knowledge exchanges; a vocabulary that
would precisely describe photographic objects and
would aid curators and collectors with their
collections; a vocabulary that would better
facilitate access to the general public, not only
to the image but also to the picture the original print.
The ‘Toronto Convention: About Photographic
Collections, Definitions, Descriptions and
Access’ aims to share this research, to engage in
new discussions and to contribute to the
establishment of a precise photographic
vocabulary. Curators, collectors, conservators,
photographic dealers and scholars will present
lectures and will take part in panel discussions
from Thursday, January 19th, 2012 to Saturday,
January 21st, 2012. A publication gathering
important definitions is planned as a follow up to the symposium.
