Guided tour with Celia Perrin Sidarous

Don’t miss the guided tour of the exhibition The Archivist with Celia Perrin Sidarous.


Celia Perrin Sidarous creates photographic scenes and settings that interrogate the functions and uses specific to the items they contain—images, objects, structures and architectural components—by creating new links between them.

Drawing in equal measure from the Western discipline of history and the rules of still life, interior decorating, and exhibition design, Perrin Sidarous’s work deconstructs the conditions under which we normally approach objects.


The exhibition explores the phantasmagoric and historic charge of objects in creating photographic arrangements. The Archivist shows items from the McCord Museum’s collection next to photographs and objects made or acquired by Celia Perrin Sidarous over many years. Two collections— one institutional and the other personal—enter into dialogue in the gallery.

Free activity, space limited.
