“The Ryerson Image Centre (RIC) plays with ideas of glamour and female representation in two exhibitions opening on Wednesday. “Burn with Desire: Photography and Glamour” offers a sweeping yet considered view of photography’s role in defining glamour since the 1920s. Approaching female identity from a different angle, “Anti-Glamour: Portraits of Women” seeks to challenge stereotypes, while claiming an alternative presence for women in the public sphere. The two exhibitions will be on view at the Ryerson Image Centre until April 5, with the public opening reception taking place on Jan. 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. “Burn with Desire” and “Anti-Glamour” are curated by Gaëlle Morel, the RIC’s exhibitions curator.” (Ryerson Today)
