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.
