Join us in the Sky Room for an afternoon of workshops, readings, and talks by artists and scholars—including Nash Glynn, AJ Lewis, and Keijaun Thomas—as part of this Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. Art + Feminism seeks to address structural imbalances on Wikipedia, the internet’s largest and most globally used free encyclopedia, where the majority of editors are cis and male. Art + Feminism provides tools and training for new Wikipedia editors and organizers, and sponsors gatherings that support this work.

This program will be dedicated to improving representation of feminist figures across the gender spectrum. Participants in the work session will create and expand Wikipedia pages for figures chosen by artists in the New Museum community, including artists Vaginal Davis, Juliana Huxtable, and Jana Hunter of the band Lower Dens. The event will focus on the work of a wide range of visionary artists, curators, and cultural producers who have critically shaped culture. We invite people of all gender identities and expressions to bring a laptop and join us for an afternoon of public programs and a work session devoted to updating Wikipedia pages. Wikipedia training will be provided throughout the day.

This public program is free to attend, registration is required. Please register via the online form.
