Deanna Bowen is an award winning interdisciplinary artist and recent recipient of the 2014 William H. Johnson Prize. On Tuesday November 24 from 7-9pm, Bowen will be giving a special presentation, the Race + Media + Archive, using archives to discuss representations of Blackness and narrative omissions in Canadian and US history.

The Race + Media + Archive workshop will discuss recent media coverage/omissions about Black Lives Matter, as well as race-baiting strategies that unfolded in the Canadian election and the run-up to the US presidential election.

This event is part of the Means of Production Speakers’ Series at Ryerson University, a free event that encourages open dialogue and invites the public to look critically at the global mediascape.

Race + Media + Archive takes place at Eaton Lecture Hall, 80 Gould St. (RCC 204) on Tuesday November 24 from 7 to 9pm. Admission is FREE.
