This workshop is for anyone interested in pursuing photography as a fine art. Wayne will guide you through the often confusing world of galleries, arts councils, foundations, and schmoozing the art scene.
I will be participating on a panel which will explore ways in which mobile media engages citizens and affects change. The discussion will challenge perceptions of traditional approaches to “anti-racism education”
I will be speaking at the Toronto Art Therapy Institute May 25th and May 31st, 2010. I am presenting as part of a course on social and cultural issues in art therapy.
A portion of the workshop “Shareyourworld: Difference & Otherness” enabled participants to create photographic posters of their own faces. They then went out into the community and posted their images in public view.
On Friday September 25th, 2009 artist Wayne Dunkley will be running a workshop in Toronto, Ontario Canada entitled “SHAREYOURWORLD: Difference & Otherness In A Postmodern World.
It is said no one is an island. We live and move and have our being navigating relationship between other, earth and self. At our essence we are relational beings. My practice is an ongoing inquiry into the nature and meaning of being in relationship.
(Re)Encoding Race: Black World-Sense in Wayne Dunkley’s the degradation and removal of the/a black male by Dr. Sheila Petty
The goal of this paper is to widen the debate around disembodiment and the body by exploring the degradation and removal of the/a black male, a moving artwork created in 2000 by black Canadian digital artist, Wayne Dunkley, in which he raises these very issues in a complex new media environment.
Artist Wayne Dunkley sometimes characterizes his work as “creating spaces”, and with his work Removal and Degradation of the/a Black Male he created an online space that also effectively interfaced with public space.
My first encounter with Wayne Dunkley’s work was the award-winning Web project www.sharemyworld.net (2001), subtitled The Degradation and Removal of the/a Black Male. From its beginnings, the roots of this project lay in the idea of inviting shared perspectives to emerge through public participation.
