 After a year of hard work, Ryerson students in the New Media, Film and Photography programs are
getting one last chance to share their work.

Maximum Exposure, an annual student-run and funded end-of-year art show, will be taking place on
May 2 to May 5. It will showcase the talents of students in all four years of the School of Image Arts.

“It’s just a great experience to exhibit your work professionally,” says Kirsti Langen, the fundraising and
sponsorship coordinator for Maximum Exposure.

The four people involved in organizing the event are fourth-year photography students. The four-day
event replaces their minor thesis projects. Their major thesis projects are the pieces of work put into the

They all agree that the event is important. They say that the event not only allows students to share
their work with industry professionals, but also shows how talented Ryerson students are, and allows
them to gain real-life experience.

“It’s basically a good way to get ready for the professional art world,” says Cassandra Alexander, the
event’s marketing and communications coordinator.

“It’s great to showcase the talent coming out of Ryerson,” adds Christine Newman, Maximum
Exposure’s budget coordinator.

This is the 18 year of Maximum Exposure, and the event has evolved over the years. It started out
as a way for fourth-year photography students to show off their talents. Then the lower years were
incorporated into the mix, followed by film students and, most recently, new media students.

This year’s event will bring students from all three image arts programs together, but it will also give
part of the spotlight to the campus.

“This year, one of the bigger things was we’re bringing it back to Ryerson,” says Alexander. “We’re
having a media exhibition here, which kind of helps tie the university back into the whole experience.”

Work done by new media students will be displayed in the image arts building. The Revue Cinema in
High Park, will be the place to go to catch projects done by film students. Photography students will be
exhibited in different galleries on Queen Street.

“For people within Ryerson, it’s great to support your school,” says Langen. “Come out and see what
we’re doing.”
