"Soft" is the sixth in a series of exhibitions designed to prompt conversations between works from the MSVU Collection. The common ground for the current conversation is the tactile quality of softness. Of course, like any good conversation, this one ranges further than might be expected. There are conventionally "soft" art works in the exhibition, but also some surprises. The exhibition includes fabric collage with fine embroidery by Anna Torma, beadwork by Colette Whiten, "performable" textiles by Gary Markle and a continuously collapsing sculpture by Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky. Each in its own way, the works resist structural fixity—some through their soft material and others in their surrender to gravity.
