Event Description

As a part of the Disassemble the Arts, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's arts and accessibility program, the AGGV will be offering a series of artists and curators talks. In this talk, Toronto-based artist and scholar Syrus Marcus Ware will discuss his work in combining art and activist, particularly in regards to the Black Mad community.

Syrus is an Assistant Professor at the School of the Arts, McMaster University. He is a Vanier scholar, visual artist, activist, curator and educator. Syrus uses painting, installation and performance to explore social justice frameworks and black activist culture, and he’s shown widely in galleries and festivals across Canada. He is a core-team member of Black Lives Matter – Toronto, a part of the Performance Disability Art Collective, and an ABD PhD candidate at York University in the Faculty of Environmental Studies. His on-going curatorial work includes That’s So Gay (Gladstone Hotel, 2016-2019) and BlacknessYes!/Blockorama. He is the co-editor or the best-selling Until We Are Free: Reflections on Black Lives Matter in Canada (URP, 2020)
