Ryan Van Der Hout

Joins United Contemporary

United Contemporary is thrilled to announce their representation of Toronto-based photographer and sculptor, Ryan Van Der Hout. With an emphasis on process rather than representation, Van Der Hout’s artwork considers how technology relates to and re-contextualizes the photographed object.


Van Der Hout’s work has been widely featured in publications including The Huffington Post, Vogue Italia, CBC and Reader’s Digest. He has exhibited across Canada, The United Kingdom, and New York, most notably in the Art Gallery of Ontario’s Collectors Series, as part of a Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival featured exhibitions, and in The Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward festival. He has created public art for the Toronto Archives, The TTC, Nuit Blanche and Pemberton Developments. Van Der Hout was awarded the Emerging Artist Award by the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, and has been supported by the Ontario Arts Council. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from Ryerson University.
