Event description[edit]

Black Lunch Table Wikipedia Editathon for Black Radical Women Visual Artists at the Brooklyn Museum during Target's First Saturday.
Black Lunch Table Wikipedia Editathon for Black Radical Women Visual Artists at the Brooklyn Museum during Target's First Saturday.

The Black Lunch Table (BLT) project at The Brooklyn Museum will create, update, and improve Wikipedia articles pertaining to the lives and works of visual artists who are women of color, who were working during the emergence of second-wave feminism. Together we will create historical documents that respond to the urgent need for a reconstruction of the art historical record.

All are invited, with no specialized knowledge of the subject or Wikipedia editing experience required. A brief overview of the basics of Wikipedia editing will be given at the start of the edit-a-thon. We will have a library resources and a list of suggested artists, cultural creators, and institutions on hand.

As an extra bonus photographer, Noelle Théard, will be taking portraits of artists for use on Wikipedia! If you don't have an image on your Wikipedia page, need a headshot (for free!!!) or want to join the fun (first come, first served), gussy up and stop by!!

History of The Black Lunch Table[edit]

The Black Lunch Table (BLT) is an ongoing collaboration between artists Jina Valentine (Fishantena (talk)) and Heather Hart (Heathart (talk)) which intends to fill holes in the documentation of contemporary art history. In its 10 year existence, the BLT has taken a variety of forms relating to this most recent iteration, in the form of the Wikipedia edit-a-thon. BLT’s aim is the production of discursive sites (at literal and metaphorical lunch tables), wherein cultural producers of color engage in critical dialogue on topics directly affecting our communities. They endeavor to create spaces, online and off, mirroring the activity and creativity present in sites where Blackness and Art are performed.

Noelle Théard[edit]

Noelle Théard is a photographer and educator. She holds an M.A. in African Diaspora Studies from Florida International University, a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin, and a certificate in advanced studies from the Spéos Photographic Institute in Paris, France. She has an MFA in Photography from Parsons The New School for Design.

Her photographic work on hip-hop culture has taken her to South America, South Africa, and Europe. Her images of Latin American hip-hop are featured in the Miami Herald’s award-winning series “A Rising Voice: Afro-Latin Americans,” and her images of hip-hop in South Africa are published in the anthology Native Tongues: An African Hip-Hop Reader.

Her professional practices are wide ranging and include Director of Photography for the acclaimed (1)ne Drop project by Dr. Yaba Blay and co-directorship of FotoKonbit, a non-profit organization created to engage and empower Haitians to tell their own stories and document their communities through photography. She also founded a photography program at the Miami Museum of Contemporary Art. Théard is currently an adjunct professor in the African Diaspora Studies program at Florida International University, where she teaches two classes: “Africa in Films” and “African Visual Arts.”

The Brooklyn Museum[edit]

Black Lunch Table Wikipedia Editathon for Black Radical Women Visual Artists at the Brooklyn Museum during Target's First Saturday.

The Brooklyn Museum is one of the oldest and largest art museums in the country. Its world-renowned permanent collections range from ancient Egyptian masterpieces to contemporary art, and represent a wide range of cultures. The mission of the Brooklyn Museum is to act as a bridge between the rich artistic heritage of world cultures, as embodied in its collections, and the unique experience of each visitor.

Focusing on the work of black women artists, We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85 examines the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic priorities of women of color during the emergence of second-wave feminism. It is the first exhibition to highlight the voices and experiences of women of color—distinct from the primarily white, middle-class mainstream feminist movement—in order to reorient conversations around race, feminism, political action, art production, and art history in this significant historical period.

Possible articles to edit[edit]

Suggested artist pages for revision and/or creation! This event-specific list focuses on important women visual artists/art workers/collectors of the African Diaspora who have some connection to the We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85 exhibition at Brooklyn Museum and are under-represented on Wikipedia. Our master list can be found under our Tasks tab. Please add a name if you know a artist of the African Diaspora note who needs a page or needs editing. Please do not add an artist who has a substantial page. We are trying to create new pages and beef up under-represented ones.

  • Etherpad: BlackLunchTable - List the article you're working on in this live doc to keep track and avoid duplicate work!
  •   denotes Infobox is needed

These articles are suggested, be sure they qualify according to Wikipedia's NOTABILITY guidlines before you create a new page. Thanks!
