University of Brighton/Ryerson University 2020 Photography Exchange

March 23rd – 28th, 2020 cancelled due to Covid-19

For the ninth consecutive year, students from the University of Brighton’s 2nd & 3rd year BFA photography program are exchanging image files with Ryerson University’s 2nd year Image Arts photo students. In past years, this exhibition has been shown on monitors in a physical space in both respective schools. This year due to the closing of school facilities because of Covid-19, both exhibitions will be hosted online.

This form of “file swap” was initiated between these two groups of students by their respective instructors, Julia Winckler at the University of Brighton, England. And Vid Ingelevics at Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada. The original premise was to simply facilitate an international connection and an opportunity to exhibit, between two programs, that although are geographically distant, are similar in nature. We understood the concept of “social distancing” before our time!
