The Centre Pompidou presents a solo exhibition of work by Sheila Hicks, an American artist based in Paris since the mid-1960s. Looking back at Hicks’ career from 1957 to the present day, more than a hundred works will be displayed in Galerie 3, overlooking the city of Paris. The exhibition invites the public to discover the various expressions of a body of work that uses cotton, wool, linen and silk to enrich our perceptions of color, material and space.
Sheila Hicks: Lignes de vie [Life Lines] casts a new light on the artist’s work. Some twenty pieces have now joined the Centre Pompidou’s collection thanks to a major donation to the Musée National d’Art Moderne. The exhibition’s fluid and non-chronological circuit is structured around a formal and chromatic dialogue between the artworks and the space.
Alongside sculptures - some of them are monumental - the exhibition includes dozens of Minimes : small woven compositions, forming a sort of laboratory for her entire body of work, and expressing her enthusiastic creativity.
