Art Exhibition – A Practice in Gestures

September 10, 2021 - November 7, 2021

September 10 – November 7
Art Exhibition – A Practice in Gestures
Richmond Art Gallery
7700 Minoru Gate
A Practice in Gestures draws together works by six artists living and working in BC, Farheen HaQ, Deborah Koenker, Bev Koski, Mitra Mahmoodi, Bettina Matzkuhn and Barbara Zeigler. The exhibition includes textile works – beading and embroidery – video, ceramic and mixed media. The divergent works share a vocabulary of simple gestures rooted in domestic familiarity that give shape to meaningful rituals and practices while confronting colonial and patriarchal narratives as well as critical environmental imperatives. Spanning decades, the artists’ practices range from emerging to over forty years. The selected works foreground the artist’s relationship with materials, their methodologies and the significance of gestures, rituals and practices. Centuries-old gestures and practices are recast and contemporized and demonstrate the potential of small, intimate gestures to expand from the personal and poetic, to the globally relevant.
