Shirley Blumberg was in residence at the CCA in April 2022 as part of Find and Tell, a program that promotes new readings that highlight the intellectual relevance of particular aspects of our collection today. Selecting and interpreting material within the John C. Parkin fonds, Blumberg offers a portrait of one of the key actors in the modernization of Canadian cities in the 1950s and 1960s and discusses the power of photography and advertising techniques in promoting the agenda of a corporate practice during those years.

The Find and Tell program is conceived as a series of residencies in which invited experts are asked to put forward arguments about our holdings by making a significant selection and interpretation of material within an archive or the photography collection. The curated selection can be based on key areas or periods, key projects, or a topical interest the expert thinks should be revealed.
