It was the kind of conversation the new exhibition at the McMaster Museum of Art is meant to inspire.

Haudenosaunee artist Talena Atfield was telling two young visitors about the history of the Haldimand Tract, helped by a striking visual aid — an artistic representation of the Grand River made from thousands of gleaming white beads woven into purple velvet.

The eye-catching artwork depicts the territory granted to the Haudenosaunee in gratitude for their allyship to the British during the American Revolution.

An art gallery in Edinburgh is inviting the public to add their own work to the walls.

Edinburgh Printmakers, which was the first, open access, print studio in the UK when it was established 57 years ago, is based in a former factory in Castle Mills, Dundee Street, Fountainbridge.

A new event, Castle Mills: Then & Now, Whose Gallery is it Anyway?, will open up the space to aspiring artists who want to put their own artwork on the walls, or curate existing work.

LONDON — The Royal Academy and National Portrait Gallery in London, founded in 1768 and 1856 respectively, have long been symbols of the British art establishment — namely the White, male-dominated establishment. In February, the RA opened Entangled Pasts, which examines its own colonialist ties by interspersing the work of contemporary Black British artists of the African, Caribbean, and South Asian diasporas with its own historic collections, while highlighting historic Black figures excluded from standard art history. The National Portrait Gallery, newly spruced up after a three-year closure for refurbishment, takes a different tack. Curated by Ekow Eshun, previously director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, The Time is Always Now: Artists Reframe the Black Figure presents works by 22 African diasporic artists exploring the richness and complexity of Black life via portraiture.
