Home Economics: 150 years of Canadian Hooked Rugs explores the evolution of hooked rugs, a uniquely Canadian folk art. For over 150 years, as long as Canada is old, the craft and commerce of rug hooking has been an intimate part of the lives of many Canadians. A form of personal artistic expression, reuse and recycling, as well as a means of earning a livelihood, hooked rugs are widely recognizable expressions of community and regional identity in Canada.
Home Economics focuses on the iconic images, stories and communities reflected in rug hooking traditions. Featuring 86 rugs, it draws on the rich material archives of the Textile Museum of Canada as well as public and private collections. The exhibition explores Canadian history through the development of rug hooking in Canada with a range of real-life narratives and anecdotes. While the exhibition includes many historic examples, dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it also examines the active revival of rug hooking by contemporary national guilds and independent artists.

For this exhibition, the MacKenzie will present Ya Ummi, Ya Ummi ... , a recent work by the artist that has not yet been exhibited. As an extension of QUID PRO QUO, the piece refers to the extra-judicial detainment of Omar Khadr, a Canadian who was arrested in 2002 and charged in the death of U.S. Army Sergeant Christopher Speer following a firefight in Afghanistan. The words “Ya ummi, ya ummi”, meaning “O Mother, O Mother” in Arabic, were repeated by Khadr during his interrogation by CSIS agents at Guantanamo Bay. Khadr, who was only 15 at the time of his arrest, later appealed his conviction and claimed that he had falsely confessed to gain transfer from Guantanamo Bay and serve the remainder of his sentence in Canada. He later sued the Canadian government for infringing his rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The lawsuit was settled in 2017 with a $10.5 million payment and an apology by the federal government. For Kennedy, the work is a response to “the power of interrogators over Omar Khadr,” and highlights the injustices connected with his illegal detainment by the Government of Canada.
Curated by Timothy Long, Head Curator of the MacKenzie Art Gallery
The exhibition will run from 20 October 2018 to 7 January 2019
