New Canadian Photography

by Jeanne Randolph

Parachute, Winter 1982, no. 29

Jayce Salloum's exhibition New Canadian Photography is highly criticized by Jeanne Randolph not only for the work selected but the curatorial process itself. Salloum claims that he chose the works that represented 'the directions which [he] found most relevant to contemporary culture' and 'borrow from the avant-garde movements of the past as well as with contemporary art'. Randolph insists that the works merely conform to these genres of the past by copying and show no reworking or covering of new ground.
