Selected Writing on Black Canadian Art

Yaniya Lee

Regular price $25.00

This collection of essays, reviews, and artist interviews by Yaniya Lee, mostly published between 2017 and 2021, gathers the testimonies and achievements of African diasporic artists and curators from across the Canada and beyond.

⁠Black art is connected to our liberation and so long as we keep making it and showing it and talking about it and thinking about it and writing about it, we continue to create conditions for an equitable future present. Black Canadian contemporary art, in particular, unsettles the hierarchies and gentle exclusions of capital “A” art history and the semantic structures of its canon.⁠
