WeirFoulds hosts Partial Gallery for 2024 Black History Month Celebration

On Tuesday, February 13th, 2024, WeirFoulds LLP proudly hosted Partial Gallery and artists Reisha Felix, Suhmer Hyatt and Daniel Maluka at the firm’s Toronto office in celebration of Black History Month.

Pieces from each of the artists were placed on display, and the three were introduced to WeirFoulds’ assembled lawyers and staff by Elizabeth Charles, the firm’s Director of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI), before engaging in a panel discussion moderated by Partial Gallery’s co-founder and CEO, Tammy Yiu Coyne.

The artists each talked about the wide range of influences that inspire their work, how they began their artistic journeys, and what ideas, themes and messages they strive to communicate through their pieces. Topics such as creating spaces for Black artists to thrive and flourish, the unique experiences of the Black diaspora in North America, and the importance of addressing uncomfortable subject matter through artwork were discussed.

During the panel, Daniel Maluka live sketched an art piece depicting WeirFoulds’ lawyers and staff, which the firm proudly purchased directly from the artist.

The event was catered by King Catering, a Black-owned, Toronto-based business that specializes in Caribbean cuisine with a North American twist.
