    Tamara Harkness is a Black artist, researcher, and curator. While studying in the Art History department at Concordia, Tamara’s research interests focused on illuminating Black Canadian art history, with a particular curiosity towards the varying ways an archive can be read and subverted in order to contend with the relative absence of Black voices. Gaining a BFA in Textile Art from NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Tamara’s own art practice uses the medium of embroidery, a slow and methodical discipline, to meditate on ideas around Black identity, feelings of exclusion/erasure, and racism within the Canadian context. As an alumnus of Concordia, Tamara has been a member of the Ethnocultural Art History research group (EAHR) since 2014.
