Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Mahovsky, based in New York and Toronto respectively, have worked collaboratively since 2004. Their work has increasingly incorporated communal aspects of making, such as DIY tutorial videos and virtual crafting bees, in the context of economies of appropriation, trade, and the gift. Their recent video project Crafts Abyss was hosted by the Museum of Arts & Design, New York. Other exhibitions since 2022 include a major temporary public installation for OpenArt, Orebro; and solo exhibitions at Susan Hobbs Gallery, Toronto; the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Arts Center at Governors Island, New York; and the Owens Art Gallery, Sackville. Their work is in collections including the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Vancouver Art Gallery; and the Musee d’art Contemporain de Montreal. They were awarded the 2014 Glenfiddich Prize and were the 2022 L.L. Odette Sculptors in Residence at York University, Toronto.
