Open Call Women of Colour

Noor Bhangu has curated a final exhibition as part of her internship at the School of Art Gallery.  The title womenofcolour@soagallery is a direct reflection of the representation of women artists in the School’s collection, only 5.6%, and the lack entirely of art by women of colour.  Bhangu’s response has been to put out an Open Call for artwork submissions.  All QTBIPOC women artists are invited to submit work.  All work submitted until the final date, April 13, will be accepted and included in the exhibition.  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AFFILIATED WITH THE UNIVERSITY!

How to apply:  Email Noor Bhangu at   SoAG.ProgramAssistant@umanitoba.ca with an expression of interest, including an image of your work if available, your name, the title, the year, the medium and the dimensions.  Drop off of work begins at the School of Art Gallery between 10-4 from Monday to Friday starting February 26 (already passed) and April 13.  You must contact Noor regarding drop off times.  Arrangements can be made for some work to be picked up on Monday, April 19.

There will be a panel discussion, TBA on March 22 and a closing reception on April 12 TBA.  Stay tuned.  I will post that information.

I know many of you in the Winnipeg community and I knew those reading this know others – please spread the word!

I write for a number of ceramic journals including Studio Potter, Art and Perception, Ceramics Technical, New Ceramics, and Ceramics Monthly. My research focuses on historical and contemporary Canadian woodfiring and, in particular, the marginalization of women. This year I have presented papers on the topic of the marginalization of women within the field of ceramics at the Third European Wood Fire Conference in La Borne, France, and the Creative Women Conference at the University of Guelph.
