Whose Art Counts?

  • Lambert Lounge Rm 187, OCAD University 100 McCaul Street Toronto, ON, M5T 1W1 Canada (map)

Moderated by Emily Norry with the help of the ODESI Big Idea Fund

"Whose Art Counts?" is a night of presentation and discussion to consider who is and is not included in art and art history. Our speakers will take varied approaches to the subject to consider what art is left out of our mainstream culture and what problems these artists face. Together we will question the cultural canon and broaden ideas of whose art has value.

This event is fully wheelchair accessible.

Presentations include:

Pamila Matharu - Worlding the Art World

Ojo Agi - African Art and the Politics of Authenticity

Ryan Rice - Whose Art Matters

Rei Misiri- Re-Rooting Urban Arts culture: Why We Must Give Exposure to Hip Hop's True Reputable Face
