Towards an African Canadian Art History

Art, Memory, and Resistance

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Edited by Charmaine A. Nelson

Towards an African Canadian Art History is the first book to consolidate this growing field. Despite the centuries-long presence of Africans in Canada, Black Canadian artistic and cultural production has been summarily neglected. Canadian participation in transatlantic slavery resulted in a repository of images of Black subjects that are often stereotypical and parallel those of other Western nations. Canada’s artistic investments in colonial ideals of Blackness have yet to be fully examined or challenged.
