Guest Speaker: Dr. Kenneth Montague, Director of Wedge Curatorial Projects / Collector of African diasporic art
Join us at the McMaster Museum of Art for a talk by collector/curator Kenneth Montague about his significant private collection of African diasporic art, the largest of its kind in Canada.
Montague has been exhibiting photo-based work with a strong focus on art that explores Black identity and the African diaspora since 1997. He has served on the Africa Acquisitions Committee at the Tate Modern, the Advisory Board of the Ryerson Image Centre, and the Photography Curatorial Committee at the Art Gallery of Ontario, where he is a Trustee and Chair of the Education and Community Engagement Committee. Montague has also served as a juror for the 2015 Bamako Encounters Biennale in Mali and he continues to speak on numerous panels internationally.
Presented as a complement to the exhibition “it is from here that the world unfolds.”
