Art + Feminism EDIT-A-THON & TALK

As part of the Art + Feminism campaign, Artexte and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts are teaming up and inviting the public to take part in a Wikipedia edit-a-thon, followed by a discussion between artist Michaëlle Sergile and independent curator Geneviève Wallen. In order to assist participating editors in finding reliable information sources and drafting and making improvements to Wikipedia pages, Artexte’s librarians will offer training in French and English. The MMFA’s Archives department and Artexte’s librarians have also assembled some digital files from their collections of publicly accessible documents as well as documentation on a selection of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of colour) artists who have shaped the contemporary art landscape but do not yet have a Wikipedia page or whose pages need to be translated or updated.

Whether you’re a Wikipedia buff or neophyte, you’re invited to contribute to the writing of a text in this edit-a-thon, which constitutes a great international effort to correct persistent biases of inequality and underrepresentation in this free encyclopedia with respect to female, BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ artists.

Edit-a-thon: 2:15 to 4:00 p.m.
Discussion: 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.

In French: Hélène Brousseau, Librarian, Artexte
In English: Jessica Hébert, Librarian, Artexte
