When Neda Masoomifar took a deep dive into the Manitoba Craft Museum and Library to research, document and photograph objects made by BIPOC makers, she didn’t expect to be moved by familiarity and to be counting dragon’s claws. With help and direction from Andrea Reichert, Curator at MCML, Masoomifar surfaced with an exhibition influenced by sociology, and personal experiences with art and art history mentors. J. A. Süss, with First Fridays, will talk with these two curators about the research and respecting the pieces, about approaches to categorization and information, and the ethics of return and acquisition.
