Dates of existence



Artist Kina Reusch was born on December 13, 1940 in Montréal. She died at age 47 in 1988. She was largely self-taught, although she took classes at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts School of Art, and at Toronto's Central Technical School and the Ontario College of Art. Both parents were artists and although she had artistic interests as a child, it was not until she was 31 in 1972 that she began to do art full-time. She had numerous exhibitions and won awards and grants from the Canada Council and Quebec's Ministère des Affaires culturelles. She taught summer workshops at Beauce-Arts. In 1976, she contributed the sculptural installation Torii to the Corridart exhibition that was sponsored by the Arts and Culture Committee of the international Olympic Games held in Montreal. She was a major participant in the subsequent legal proceedings known as L'Affaire Corridart. In 1977 she became director of women artists' artist-run Powerhouse Gallery (later renamed La Centrale). Kina Reusch was best known for her abstract weavings. Her paintings, tapestries, and sculptures are in various private and corporate collections, including the Art Bank of the Canada Council and the Collection Prêt d'oeuvres d'art du Musée du Québec.
