Curation and Community in the Age of Art + Feminism: Panel and Wikipedia Edit-a-thon
Tue, Mar 13, 2018 | 11:00 am
Join us for a panel discussion about representation and identity in art, moderated by Dr. Jennifer Zarro, art historian, writer, curator, and faculty at the Tyler School of Art, with:
Kate Kraczon, Laporte Associate Curator, ICA Philadelphia
Mechella Yezernitskaya, co-curator of Beyond Boundaries: Feminine Forms
In the afternoon, participate in the fifth (and our third!) annual Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to gender, art, and feminism. Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors were women. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of representation from women. Let’s change that.
We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, and refreshments, and invite people of all gender identities and expressions to participate, particularly transgender and cisgender women.
Panel starts at 11:00 AM/Training starts at 12:30 PM/Editing in full swing at 1:30 PM. Drop in at any time!
