Events: April 2011

It’s hard to think about shows in April when CONTACT is just around the corner – they’re releasing all the info April 1st! However, there are great shows aplenty until then, so be sure to get out there and have a look. I am especially excited to see the Function Exhibition, run by the team behind Ryerson’s photo, new media, and film magazine – Function. There is always a broad range of work and in past years there have been some great deals on prints.
