In the summer of 2017, MAWA co-published Desire Change: Contemporary Feminist Art in Canada, edited by Heather Davis. This groundbreaking book is the first to document our history and our present, as feminist visual art practioners. The text is meaty and engaging, and the book is richly illustrated throughout. Join Dr. Roewan Crowe at a monthly reading group to explore Desire Change, one chapter at a time. This is a book that is guaranteed to spur discussion!

Multidisciplinary artist and Professor Roewan Crowe is passionate about feminist art engagement with a particular focus on artistic practitioner knowledge, and has used Desire Change as a textbook at University of Winnipeg. MAWA can think of no one better to help us delve into the text! Copies of the book are available at MAWA for $45. There are also 3 copies available to borrow through the Winnipeg Public Library. The Desire Change reading group will run for as many weeks as chapters, so the group will be concluding in 2020!

All participants are asked to read Chapter 3, "Fashioning Race, Gender and Desire: Cheryl Sim's Fitting Room and Mary Sui Yee Wong's Yellow Apparel" by Alice Ming Wai Jim prior to the December Meeting.
