RACAR 43. 2 2018 UAAC / AAUC Universities Art Association of Canada / Association d’art des universités du Canada تکلیف RACAR 43. 2 2018 Editors’ Note We are proud to present this special issue dedicated to critical curating, a subject of current interest in the art world. As the field of curating includes both academic research and curatorial practice, guest editors Marie Fraser and Alice Ming Wai Jim have assembled a mix of academic research papers and curatorial statements that consider ethical and progressive ways to exhibit artistic practices that are often excluded from galleries and museums (works by feminist, LGBTQ2S+, Indigenous, and visible minority artists, or art that targets difficult issues). We would also like to take this opportunity to warmly thank Emily Falvey for her contribution to RACAR over the course of this year. Emily joined our team in the summer of 2017 as the Managing Editor of the journal. In the summer of 2018, the Owens Art Gallery (Mount Allison University) offered her a post as Director/Curator. This job is the perfect fit for Emily, as it will enable her to tap into her vast experience as a curator, and also to develop her research interests in contemporary art. We wish her much success, and we are honoured to have worked with her. ¶
