Womxn and BIPOC artists have been historically underrepresented in art spaces. Major museums, commercial galleries and other mainstream areas of the art world have catered to the white male artist and typical western “canon.” Art+Feminism is a movement seeking to change that, focusing on how womxn have been underrepresented in the digital world, specifically on Wikipedia.
Each year under the banner of Art+Feminism, libraries, museums and others dedicated to this mission hold Wikipedia edit-a-thons to rectify the injustice of these omissions. This year, due to COVID-19, the edit-a-thon organized by the Wexner Center for the Arts Student Engagement Group and the Fine Arts Library was held virtually. This event features talks on the topic of art and feminism by Carmen Winant and Dr. Guisela Latorre that were originally scheduled as part of the 2020 edit-a-thon.
