The newest exhibition at Richmond Art Gallery takes the invisible labour of domestic practices (“women’s work” for the old-fashioned) and makes it visible. Artists Farheen HaQ, Deborah Koenker, Bev Koski, Mitra Mahmoodi, Bettina Matzkuhn and Barbara Zeigler use beading, ceramics, embriodery and more to illustrate how traditional practices can be used to process trauma and build resiliency—shedding some light on some very underrated work.
