Susan Dobson: On Cities and the Built Environment
Photo-based artist Susan Dobson will present work that relates to her interest in the built environment, in architecture and archaeology, and in the endless cycle of demolition and construction due to rapid urbanization. She will also discuss her massive installation titled Back/Fill, currently on view in Toronto, Canada, during the CONTACT photography festival.
Susan Dobson was born in suburban New Brunswick, Canada, to a family of land developers, and she spent most of her childhood living in Detmold, Germany. Themes of unearthing and rebuilding, and architecture and archaeology are frequently evidenced in her photographs. Her work is also strongly rooted in the medium of photography itself, in its technological and material qualities, its history, and its indexical nature. Dobson’s photographs have been exhibited internationally at galleries and festivals including CONTACT (Toronto, Canada), Fotoseptiembre (Mexico City), Le Mois de la Photo (Montreal, Canada), Images Festival (Vevey, Switzerland), Bitume/Bitumen (Brussels), and FotoNoviembre (Spain). Dobson’s photographs can be found in numerous collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, Oakville Galleries, Toronto Archives, Swiss Museum of Photography, Tenerife Espacio de las Artes, Art Gallery of Windsor, and the Portland Museum. Susan Dobson is Associate Professor at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada.
