Imani Dominique

Imani Busby is an ambitious and multifaceted curator, visual artist, and entrepreneur. She is passionate about arts equity and aims to explore the ways in which the industry can be sustainable for Black artists and creatives.

 

She aims to use her curatorial and entrepreneurial skills to create engaging, interactive, and community-filled spaces that amplify emerging and mid-career artists. Through the creation of public art, exhibition pop-ups, and print publications, Imani aims to increase access to the arts for all communities. Additionally, through workshops and accessible resources, she aims to provide artists with business, legal, and professional development opportunities. 

 

Imani’s curatorial portfolio includes exhibits such as “Brothers on the Wall at Liss Gallery, “Just Between Us” with CARFAC Ontario and ALAS, “Media Pass” sponsored by Manifesto and Posterjack, “It Will All Make Sense Soon” at the Rec Room, “It Takes a Village” with RISE Edutainment, “The Gift Shop” a business incubator and exhibit for Black artists, “BlackPOP!”, “Colouring The White Cube: A Collective Action Exhibition”, and “PLAYGIRL: Entertainment For Men.”. She was also the editor in Chief of StyleCircle, through which she lead a team of over 60 students and coordinated the production of two print publications.

 

With roots in creativity and entrepreneurship, Imani is passionate about the art and fashion industries, representation, and community building.

 

This workshop is located at “The Gift Shop” in ByWard Market (#9-13).

 

Curated by Imani Dominique and inspired by the aesthetics of local record stores, “The Gift Shop”  is an interactive and immersive art gallery. Located at ByWard Market from June 13 – July 18, this pop-up shop will sell prints from local QTBIPOC artists and create an environment that is conducive to art exploration and discovery. Through engaging professional development workshops and creative activations hosted in the space, this exhibit also provides emerging and mid-career artists with an opportunity to incubate their businesses and develop their entrepreneurial skills.
