We are thrilled to now include BIPOC visual artists and their work in CultureBrew.Art! With CultureBrew.Art you can create an artist profile to showcase your work to our growing subscriber list of engagers and employers looking for BIPOC artists like you from the visual arts sector and beyond.
We also invite current CBA members who have a visual arts practice to consider adding the visual artist module to their profiles to better represent the fulsome nature of their artistic practice.
In partnership with Canadian Artists' Representation/Le Front des artistes canadiens (CARFAC), we consulted with BIPOC visual artists from across disciplinary practices as well as from almost every province and territory across the country, to explore what improvements CBA should make that would allow visual artists to be effectively found by curators, galleries, museums, and other engagers. Consultation participants shared their experiences as artists, the barriers they face when being considered for opportunities by engagers, and how artists across Canada might better connect to one another.
Through our consultation process, we have added the following visual arts categories to our visual arts discipline module:
- Bark Biting
- Body Art
- Comics and Graphic Novels
- Drawing (pencil, pen, pastel, etc)
- Fibre or Organic Art
- Fish Scales
- Fur/Hair Tufting/Quillwork
- Hides (including drum-making)
- Land-based art
- Metal Art
- Mixed Media
- Performance Art
- Photography (digital or analog)
- Printmaking (etching, silkscreen, etc)
- Weaving (bark, cedar roots, etc)
