Black Wimmin Artist
Founded in 2016 by artist/curator, Anique Jordan, Black Wimmin Artist, is a network of over 100 Canada-based Black women creators ranging from working artists to critics, collectors, academics and arts administrators. The collective operates in a virtual space where members communally build and nurture the ecosystems surrounding Black women artists while jointly deepening familiarity and visual literacy around the work of Black artists globally. The group is a responsive, virtual community of Black women connected through art. Members reciprocally support each other economically by sharing employment opportunities, socially, creatively, politically and emotionally, affirming the incredibly large and widespread presence of Black women’s creativity across Ontario and Canada.
