Introducing the “Canadian BIPOC Artists Rolodex”

Event Language




Started by professors Jinny Yu and Celina Jeffery (from uOttawa) and Ming Tiampo (from Carleton U), the project is a searchable database of Canadian BIPOC artists aimed to facilitate and encourage research, teaching, and exhibitions on BIPOC artists, who as you might know, continue to be underrepresented in publications, exhibitions, and curricula. Research assistants Tia Carey and Candide Mawoko will introduce the database, which has been named the Canadian BIPOC Artists Rolodex, references the ways in which BIPOC artists have been historically known through personal and artistic networks rather than through institutions. It seeks to increase accessibility to BIPOC artists during first-phase research and subsequently increase their representation in curriculum, publications, and art institutions. It is conceived of in equal measures as a curated platform, digital humanities project, and advocacy work. Location: Univeristy of Ottawa CreatorSpace (PĂ©rez Hall, room 302).
