Practice as Ritual/Ritual as Practice is a group exhibition that features the work of ten Black women artist who in 1989 organized the national touring exhibition, Black Wimmin: When and Where We Enter, to address the exclusion of Black women artists from the visual landscape of Canada. The exhibition attests and affirms the artists’ sustained practice of producing art that articulate the heterogeneity of perspectives and forms that constitute Black Canadian women’s art today. The works in the exhibition comprise of paintings, photography, text, installations, video, augmented reality, and sculpture.

The title of the exhibition refers to the overarching theme that emerges in the works – one of tending to Black histories, presents, and futures through the practice of artmaking – and the labour involved in such a practice.
