Arts and Entertainment Work Group

The Arts and Entertainment Work Group is a working group of members of the Biography WikiProject dedicated to ensuring quality and coverage of biography articles.


Related Projects

Since biographies are potentially under the purview of almost all WikiProjects, it is important that we work in tandem with these projects. Also, when seeking collaboration on articles, don't neglect to approach WikiProjects that are part of the geographical region your subject is/was in.

Related Portals

Increase the exposure of our work group by nominating our articles for their Portal FA and DYKs... Specific discipline portals are listed in that section.

Directions for expanding any division belowEdit

The general outline and collection has been started, but if you would like to expand and organize a discipline, here's what you do. Right below the page heading for the discipline insert this: {{subst:Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Work groups/Division banner}} and save. This will put a rough outline together for you and then you can edit it to conform to your area. See Writers and critics below for an example. If your project grows large enough where it's taking up a good portion of this page, you should probably move it to a subpage of this page.

You might also want to make a Members section for people to join your specific area!

Tagging articlesEdit

Any article related to this work group should be marked by adding |a&e-work-group=yes to the {{WPBiography}} project banner at the top of its talk page. This will automatically place it into Category:Arts and entertainment work group articles. Articles can be assessed for priority within this work group by using the |a&e-priority= parameter. See Template:WikiProject Biography/doc for detailed instructions on how to use the banner.

This article was created in 2007 by a COI editor and deleted as promotional. It then seems to have been recreated. According to the exhibition’s own website it only ran three times, and while there are a few pieces of coverage it does not look to me like sustained coverage and I’m not sure about the independence of all the sources. Overall I don’t think the topic is notable. Mccapra (talk) 05:43, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Likely fails WP:NBIO. A resume like article with some claims that are hard to verify; same creator at for Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Vladimir Nasedkin (2nd nomination), where an editor (User:Netherzone) already noted a failure to verify some assertions.

  • Keep I hope you don't mind me saying this Piotrus, I think you're being overly trigger-happy in nominating stuff for AFD. This artist was profiled in a long article on Isvestia (a Russian WP:NEWSORG, was covered in Taday (another newsorg), and on UGRA-NEWS (another newsorg). Passes WP:BASIC.FOARP (talk) 07:44, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
    • @FOARP: I certainly don't mind anyone who makes a valid argument, and if you show me I was wrong, I am happy to withdraw my nom or reconsider my vote. I don't read Russian, which limits my searchers, but using machine translation I can review sources presnted. [1] calls them both world-famous, but other than that it's a WP:INTERVIEW. [2] devotes a single paragraph to each (as well as to a number of other artists who took part in this event). [3] sadly refuses to work for me with GTransalte, but it seems to be another interview. I don't think this is sufficient for me to withdraw this, as interviews and mentions in passing are IMHO not sufficient, but it is a start. Feel free to comment in the other linked AfD, particularly if you can help find more Russian language sources. What I'd love to find to convince me to keep them would be an in-depth article about their life and career, instead of just a brief note about one of their note in some exhibition or interviews (which per linked essay are problematic as a source). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:10, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Nothing in the first ref states or would lead you reasonably to conclude that it's an interview - briefly quoting the artist does not make it so as it also includes a lot of description of the artist's work written by the author of the article. Regarding the second ref., a paragraph can still be WP:SIGCOV so long as includes detail and in this case, it does. Regarding the third, the introductory section is clearly not interview content and substantiates notability. WP:BASIC is met. Finally, I note this is one of ~30 articles that you have nom'd for deletion in the last ~24-48 hours. FOARP (talk) 11:04, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
PS - I also note from a very quick search on GScholar that the artist appears to have been the subject of a substantial piece in the Chiba University Humanities and Social Sciences Research Journal. FOARP (talk) 11:12, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep I have to agree this is a bit quick on the trigger and should be withdrawn. Assuming the museum collection claims are true, the bar of WP:ARTIST 4d is very clearly met with many museum collections. @Piotrus: it would be good to withdraw this as it needs cleanup, not deletion.ThatMontrealIP (talk) 14:19, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
I clearly am right: the museum collections make her notable. If you want to do TNT, then cut the article down. Don't nominate it for AFD, as you know it is not meant a cleanup process. There is significant good material in the article that could be cleaned up in ten minutes.ThatMontrealIP (talk) 14:36, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep Comment- Two several collections checked out to be verifiable. I don't have time this morning to check the others, nor the shows. It's problematic that the sourcing is so poor, as she might in fact be notable as she is indeed notable. Nevertheless, the article is a resumé and there is a COI and needs significant improvement. Netherzone (talk) 14:24, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
What's the COI? FOARP (talk) 14:46, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Both she and her husband, who edits as Владимир Наседкин (which translates to exactly his name) have worked on the page, and the page creator (a SPA) is most likely COI as they created both she and her husbands articles in the same unsourced resumé style. However, I do think her article should be kept and improved rather than WP:TNTing it. Netherzone (talk) 14:56, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Weak delete. Perhaps a legitimate page could be written, but that one was clearly written as an advertisement and created by an account with obvious WP:COI. My very best wishes (talk) 04:54, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

Article about a public artwork, not reliably sourced to any evidence of its notability. Two of the four "sources" here are the artist's own self-published promotional video about the unveiling of his own work, a third is its directory entry on the self-published website of the property management company that commissioned it, and a fourth is just a photograph of it -- which means zero of them represent reliable source coverage about it. As always, every piece of artwork that exists in the world is not automatically guaranteed a Wikipedia article -- it has to be the subject of enough reliable source coverage to clear GNG. This was also created by an editor with a probable WP:COI, as their only contributions to Wikipedia have all involved this artist and his work. Bearcat (talk) 02:24, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Keep, in the weak to medium range. This has not been open long, but I found three decent sources on it. I have the sense that we should keep it as it is a permanent installation and will likely generate more sources, given those already published during its short tenure. I know, not a perfect argument, but I have a sense. And the new sources I added are not terrible. Article does need cleanup, and I did notice a COI tag. Despite that, the work seems notable, in the weak to medium range. ThatMontrealIP (talk) 04:36, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
Update: the Tourism and Heritage Journal devotes 904 words to the piece, in the article linked here. Along with the three independent RS of middling quality that I added, I think this is a clearer keep.ThatMontrealIP (talk) 05:00, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Keep or merge with [[Ben Rubin (artist) - The scholarly journal essay mentioned above was the tipping point, as the artwork has received news and critical attention, and is also the subject of an in-depth analysis. It is true that the article was created by an SPA with a definite COI, which is problematic. However, the work has cultural merit, and is a permanent work of public art. I found another source from the Center for Data Art, but because it was written by the article creator (the SPA/COI), I did not add it to the article. It's a shaky keep, but a keep nevertheless. Netherzone (talk) 12:55, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete The apparent conflict of interest by Surabhinaik07 is troubling. A clarification would be most welcome. Then again, a conflict of interest by the creator of the article is not a reason for deletion. I think it's too soon to have an article about an artwork when it is not clear that significant coverage is sustained over a longer period of time. I see no evidence that the work has had a significant impact, has been cited as particularly influential or innovative. The reporting is too much of a single event. If it had been a work by a single artist, I would have suggested to merge it into an existing article, but there is no suitable target. I see no alternatives to deletion. Vexations (talk) 13:45, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment and Question I'm just popping in to this, and I'm confused as to what is the history here. Specifically, why did Surabhinaik07 create a new page, and request the deletion of the old page, rather than just rename. On some level that is not material here, as it relates to a different page, but at the same time it does, as it is part of questions about COI. I really would like to be able to see what the original Rubin page looked like prior to its deletion, and the loss of that history is exactly why it shouldn't have been deleted, but rather renamed (e.g. moved). That said, it seems like the Rubin page is pretty small, and is missing any discussion of Works which seems to me that an article of this length actually deserves to be placed there, rather than in its own page. If any of his works deserves its own page, it is Listening Post (Artwork). [[4]], [[5]], [[6]], [[7]] etc. --Theredproject (talk) 14:49, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
I am not so worried abotu the COI as they (Rubin, Thorp, the artwork, and also Listening Post) are all notable to a degree. I've created Listening Post (artwork). ThatMontrealIP (talk) 15:22, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
I am slightly worried that the user has ignored COI queries on their usertalk page. Surely editors are expected to respond to such queries. In other news, the cut and paste move is fixed and the history merged. – filelakeshoe (t / c) 🐱 11:55, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Non-notable writer. Fails WP:AUTHOR, WP:BIO and WP:SIGCOV. scope_creepTalk 15:12, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Keep I'm the author of the article and here's why it should be kept: She does not fail WP:AUTHOR as one of her books was a finalist for the 2017 Governor General Literary Award and therefore qualifies under criteria #3. She's also a notable person, as independant reliable sources give her coverage. I can dig through newspapers and add more, which was part of the reason I originally had the article in draft space (as I planned to improve it). I was busy, and do other stuff on-wiki in the meantime. Yesterday, the draft was deleted under G13 as abandoned, and I submitted a WP:REFUND request to contunie working on it. I moved it to mainspace to prevent it from being deleted again under G13 if I got busy again, as I'm a grade 12 student and I might not be as active on Wikipedia for periods of time because of my obligations as a student.

  • Keep – The author was interviewed by CBC, Canada's national public broadcaster for radio and TV [8]. The author also was interviewed by the Toronto Star (Canada's highest-circulation newspaper) for a story about the house she lives in [9]. Her book, Everything Beautiful is Not Ruined won the White Pine Award, a national Canadian award. [10] The book was reviewed by The Globe and Mail [11], Teen Vogue [12], and others. CBC named it one of the best Canadian YA/children's books of 2017 [13] and one of 150 books on "The great Canadian reading list" [14].

This article was created in 2010 with no sources[16] and remains basically unchanged today, although sources have been added for part of the article. While the subject may be notable, it is better to Wikipedia:Blow it up and start over and allow someone to re-write it based on reliable sources.

A BLP with no direct sources. Also, it's an orphan. The only things preventing a PROD are the external links, none of which seems to establish the notability of the subject. From an internet search, neither the subject nor his New York Festivals award is notable under WP:GNG. Similarly, this subject does not meet WP:NACTOR and WP:NMUSIC, which I checked just in case.

This Article on Zoe Ansari, is an important addition to Wikipedia. I will highly appreciate if you give me some time to complete this article. This article should not be deleted. Kindly read the Progressive Writer's movement page. His name was already there but no page linking to it. He was a great writer and translator. It is because of him the south Asian community got a better introduction with Russian literature and Literary criticism. Thanks in anticipation. Khadem Hussain, India.

This article does not show how the individual meets criteria of WP:GNG or WP:BIO. It's basically a resume; nearly all of the references are from his own magazine or things that he has written. I can't find any reliable sources that are about him, rather he is mentioned as an attendee or presenter at a conference for example, or quoted in some other periodical that is of unclear notability. He seems to be very prolific but that in itself does not make the subject notable for Wikipedia purposes. ... discospinster talk 19:19, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Keep. I found this in-depth article on him in Malaysia's The Star newspaper. In addition, 31 search results at Google scholar.

  • Comment That was the minor coverage I mentioned. The Google scholar citation counts are too low to be meaningful. I have not seen an h-index but suspect it will be very low as well and won't establish notability scope_creepTalk 11:09, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment: a "distinguished talent visa" is not an accomplishment or an award, it is a class of visa the government offers. I can't see how it can establish notability, even if were able to be verified, which it currently is not. Melcous (talk) 23:48, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete: there is one seemingly WP:RS (noted above) but nearly ever other link in the references of current article is dead, won't open for me, does not mention him, or mentions him in passing.

Lots of detail, very little indication of notability for this businessman / promoter / club owner. If someone could point out to me any of the sources provided on the page that would pass as independent and in-depth coverage of the man himself, I'd be obliged. There seems to be a spirited attempt to base notability on connection to the Statue of David Bowie, but all I can here see is passing mentions.

This page was nominated at the subject's request. Ruby Hamad is a "not particularly well-known" journalist in Australia. She expressed to me (via Facebook) that she believes the page was created purely as a form of trolling, and the history of the page does indicate a lot of unsourced negative commentary (since removed). My own research does tend to support the idea that she is not sufficiently notable to have her own page. Most of the references are to the journalist's own work and not to any 3rd party source.

OK user:Cabrils, so you've commented purely on what's currently in the article. How about now consider what is not currently there. Such as her book and the coverage that has generated such as the above provided links. I suggest that as we should be looking at the notability of the subject and not just the current state of the article which can be changed. duffbeerforme (talk) 12:40, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
@Duffbeerforme: Duff, I respect your voluminous and significant contributions here. I accept that there has been coverage of her book. I conducted a search via ProQuest for news articles in Australia and New Zealand which returned 79 results, many of which were short articles she had authored or were extremely short, insignificant passing mentions, IMHO failing WP:RS. I have often tried to save pages from deletion by way of WP:HEY but in this case I admit to being less inclined to do so because of Manning's explanation, which is convincing. In any event, as I said, a ProQuest search did not return any results I felt comfotable adding as relevant citations. Cabrils (talk) 01:35, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete This page does not meet the notability criteria set out in Wikipedia:BASIC or Wikipedia:AUTHOR nor has her book has not been reviewed by any serious publication aside indie-blogs. Furthermore, links on this page lead to non-Wikipedia articles written by Ruby Hamad herself. However, her requests that she 'wants this page gone' should not influence this discussion as Ruby has attracted criticism through her own actions by making inflammatory claims with articles such as 'white women use strategic tears to silence women of colour'. Like any other individual online, she should not be free from being criticised for her words or actions, especially if they are intended to cause controversy. User:PierreABCD's comment that she is 'an articulate and forthright woman of Syrian origins' shows clear favoritism bias and holds no relevance to this discussion.

Yivsam Azgad is a well-known art curator, science fiction author, eminent journalist and spokesperson of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. He already has a Wikipedia page in Hebrew, which is well supported with links to reliable references and meets the Wikipedia guidelines. The article in English has been created in consultation with the above-mentioned article in Hebrew and with the references provided within the same. However, this article needs to be amended with regard to the references attached, which can be fixed via editing. The grounds on which this article has been opened to discussion for deletion is unclear to me and it seems a bit biased and suspicious, given that Yivsam Azgad has given a lot of service to Arts, Science, and Journalism including many science-based socio-cultural initiatives which are recognized worldwide and thus deserves a Wikipedia page in English.Q936 (talk) 20:13, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Israeli author: He is also a well known Israeli author (see his list of publications).
  • Israeli curator (including science-art): Yivsam Azgad has also been exploring the concept of combining art and science: displaying contemporary Art exhibition in research spaces at the Weizmann Institute and exhibiting scientific images in art spaces in Tel Aviv and elsewhere (see: http://www.weizmann.ac.il/Arts/en/home).

  • Vote for no deletion There should be hardly a question of notability here because Yivsam Azgad, as mentioned by user Q936, is a well-known journalist, writer, and art curator. He is the brain behind Science on Tap, which has been a great success in Israel and highly recognized worldwide. He is the creator of Nano Comics which is published in English, Arabic and Hebrew and is highly popular amongst children. Besides that, sources referred to confirm his notability are well established, for example, the article in Lexicon of New Hebrew Literature, The Ohio State University which is bagged only by outstanding individuals in literature in Hebrew and journalism. 0587 (talk) 22:33, 16 October 2019 (UTC)8570w (talkcontribs) is a confirmed sock puppet of Q936 (talkcontribs).
  • Delete per WP:BIO. There is no evidence of notability through independent coverage. The whole page is like a CV with primary sources appended for every single thing he's done. Plenty of writers and academics produce large bodies of work, but Wikipedia demands that notability be proved through non-primary sources speaking about the subject exclusively, or interviewing him, or discussing his accomplishments. The Hebrew Wikipedia article is no indicator of notability either, being as it is littered with primary sources affirming every single thing he's done, and produced by the same editor as here. Please read WP:BASIC: People are presumed notable if they have received significant coverage in multiple published secondary sources that are reliable, intellectually independent of each other, and independent of the subject. That is not the case here. Yoninah (talk) 23:29, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete - fails to meet notability and overly reliant on primary sources. --mikeu talk 20:07, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Delete - while at first glance the references look good, a deeper dive reveals a Hebrew Wikipedia article, random web pages for places and organizations tangentially related to the subject, and self-edited websites. There's no way to verify any of the information about the person. I have been to several World Cons, and won an award for most humorous costume at a regional SF con. He's unknown as a science fiction writer in North America. The page from OSU is a staff-written page; anybody who works in academia knows they're essentially self-published. If it were one of several sources, that would be fine, but as the only source, and in Hebrew, no. Bearian (talk) 01:48, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

The wiki has almost no sources at all. It seems to be written by the subject, as many of the contributions seem to be done the subject himself, with a couple of usernames, including JJackman. This is not neutral writing. The lack of sources in this article, and the lack of notability for the subject make it seem unimportant and not actually viable for a Wikipedia article.

Matt Mercer (actor)Edit

First off, it is very difficult to find reliable sources for this subject, since looking up "Matt Mercer" on Google generates results on the far more notable Critical Role star Matthew Mercer, who is also known for his notable roles in anime and video games.

And when sources *were* found, they are just brief mentions of the subject, and barely any of them have significant depth. There is barely any coverage from credible news sources. So I'm convinced that the subject fails WP:SIGCOV.

Furthermore, the subject is largely involved with indie films or really, really low budget productions, many of which have barely any notability nor coverage to speak of, so I am not convinced that the subject meets WP:ENT, either.

On top of that, I also think this subject also does not meet WP:WHYN. Quoting the guideline: We require "significant coverage" in reliable sources so that we can actually write a whole article, rather than half a paragraph or a definition of that topic. If only a few sentences could be written and supported by sources about the subject, that subject does not qualify for a separate page, but should instead be merged into an article about a larger topic or relevant list. From the same guideline: Because these requirements are based on major content policies, they apply to all articles, not solely articles justified under the general notability criteria. I'm not convinced that you could write very much for this subject due to the lack of sources.

PS: If you look into the subject's article history, you could see that the draft was declined several times, and that it is has never been approved by anyone. This means the reviewers never thought the subject meets our notability criteria to begin with. Sk8erPrince (talk) 15:21, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Weak keep as he does have some leading roles in films that might be independent but do have multiple critics reviews at Rotten Tomatoes which means they are notable. His roles can be confirmed in those reviews, imv Atlantic306 (talk) 19:51, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
But do those reviews talk about the subject, or the films themselves? From what I could see, it seems to be the latter with trivial to no mention of the subject; hence failing WP:SIGCOV. --Sk8erPrince (talk) 00:28, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

  • Delete - Not an easy subject to judge, but looking at the provided sources, two of them are 404 and the rest consist of mere mentions that fail WP:SIGCOV or interviews that also fail WP:RS and WP:IS. Movies where the subject stars in are low-budget productions and for the most part, barely pass WP:GNG on their own. Perhaps if more reliable sources were added to the article my opinion would change. —  Centron   X   11:05, 19 October 2019 (UTC)
