Kina Reusch began her career as an artist in 1972. In 1976, she presented Torii at the infamous Corridart exhibition that was abruptly taken down on the orders of Montreal’s administration. In 1977, she became director of Galerie Powerhouse (now known as La Centrale). Known primarily for her abstract woven pieces, she has also produced tapestries, paintings and sculptures which can be found in various private and public collections in Canada.
