From February 7 to April 30, 2018, discover Sheila Hick’s textile art at Paris Centre Pompidou. Unknown by the public, the textile art is often a forgotten part of art, between tapestry and sculpture.
For over 50 years now, Sheila Hicks has been sewing, tying and wrapping wool, linen and cotton yarns to create works inherited by Bauhaus and issues related to Anti-Form.
For this exhibition at Centre Pompidou, Sheila Hicks (who lives and works in Paris), returns on her whole career with dozens of sculptures gathered un-chronologically, offering then an open visit through “a work exalting the life of colors, materials and shapes” and, as a counterpoint, several dozens of Minimes, very small weaves focusing on creation in a “laboratory” recreated on the occasion.
On the first floor of Centre Pompidou, we find over 80 incredible works and projects: giant balls of wool in which we'd love to dive, tangled cotton yarns lianas, textile paintings, cotton pockets patchworks. The size of the works, the shimmering colors, the varied textures make sewing and scrapbooking fans dream!
