On Saturday December 3, 2016, in conjunction with a global campaign, the Guggenheim will host its fifth Wikipedia edit-a-thon—or, #guggathon—to enhance Wikipedia's coverage of modern and contemporary artists from Greater China.
The event will cap off Wikipedia Asian Month, an online campaign dedicated to augmenting Asian content on Wikipedia throughout November. Time:
Saturday, December 3, 2016
11:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
1071 5th Ave, New York, NY
Enter at the 88th Street entrance via the ramp at 88th Street and Fifth Avenue
New and experienced editors are welcome. The event will include a training session for participants who are new to Wikipedia, and Wikipedia specialists will be on hand to provide basic instruction and editing support.
Local editors will receive complimentary tickets to tour the exhibition Tales of Our Time, after the editing session
The Guggenheim aims to raise awareness of the artists featured in the Tales of Our Time exhibition supported by The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative, and build on the model of campaigns like the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at the Guggenheim: Women in Architecture, Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at the Guggenheim: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa, and Art+Feminism. RSVP and more details here: https://www.meetup.com/WikimediaNYC/
All are welcome, and let me know if you have any questions, or if you are interested in greater engagement by bringing along a student group, or any other group who are interested in editing articles on contemporary Chinese artists.
