Virgil Baruchel at the Doris McCarthy Gallery
The new series of tapestries by Virgil Baruchel will be part of the exhibition Ornamental Gestures at the Doris McCarthy Gallery, curated by Sandy Saad-Smith, from January 21 until April 1, 2023. The exhibition brings together works that integrate beading, calligraphy, wallpaper, visual motifs, and rug design and production - Including contemporary approaches to art-making methods traditional to the artists' cultural heritages, and push their mediums into new territories that play with scale, context, process, and material. The works in Ornamental Gestures challenge the distinction between art and craft, and occupy a space between contemporary art and cultural tradition.
