Abstract (English)

"Drawing from the established fields of “African American Art History”, “Race and Representation”, and the “Visual Culture of Slavery”, Charmaine A. Nelson and her colleagues — a group of established and up-and-coming artists, scholars, and cultural critics — argue for an African Canadian Art History that can simultaneously examine the artistic contributions of black Canadian artists within their unique historical contexts, critique the colonial representation of black subjects by white artists, and contest the customary racial homogeneity of Canadian Art History." -- Publisher's website.
