Home Economics explores the unique stories and histories that have informed hooked rugs in Canada, the highly recognizable forms of folk art with roots in 19th-century North America. Featuring over 100 hooked rugs from the Museum's rich archive of international material culture, the exhibition represents generations of artisanal entrepreneurship, women's domestic and collective work, as well as rural development in Canada. It includes the work of contemporary artists Nancy Edell, Deanne Fitzpatrick, Hannah Epstein, Joanna Close, Barbara Klunder, Heather Goodchild, and Yvonne Mullock.
