Wikipedia Asian Month 2019: Edit-a-thon on Exhibition Histories

23 November, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Wikapedia Asian Month 2019: Edit-a-thon on Exhibition Histories

Exhibitions help us understand the context in which artists and their works are presented to the public, but their place in art and visual culture history is often overlooked. Even some of the most important art and visual culture exhibitions in and about Asia have limited representation on Wikipedia, or none at all.

This upcoming Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, co-presented by Asia Art Archive and M+, West Kowloon Cultural District, aims to address this discrepancy. Part of an ongoing institutional collaboration and produced with the assistance of the Wikimedia Community User Group Hong Kong, the event brings together participants to discuss, create, improve, and share Wikipedia articles about exhibitions in and about Asia.

Aligned with Wikipedia Asian Month 2019, which addresses the underrepresentation of articles about Asia on Wikipedia, this event is part of an ongoing effort to contribute to discussions about the representation of art and visual culture in Asia on open-source knowledge platforms.
