This solo exhibition at Centre Pompidou looks back at Sheila Hicks’ career from 1957 to the present day, with more than a hundred works on display in Galerie 3 overlooking the city of Paris. The exhibition invites the public to discover the various expressions of an art that uses cotton, wool, linen and silk to enrich our perceptions of colour, material and space. The exhibition casts a new light on the artist’s work that has been reviewed over the past years. 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, A4-sized woven pieces or compositions, forming a sort of laboratory for her entire work, and expressing her enthusiastic creativity.
