From February 07 to April 30, 2018

From February 07 to April 30, 2018, Centre Pompidou promotes textile artist Sheila Hicks through an exhibition. For 50 years of creation, Sheila Hicks shook up the codes of art by using varied fabric, wool, linen, cotton, products often reserved for stylists, to create often monumental and always colorful sculptures.

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.

A pupil of Josef Albers at Yale, Sheila Hicks is the heir to both a Modernist spirit that holds the distinctions between fine art, decoration and design to be unimportant and a textile practice that has its roots in pre-Columbian America. The Lignes de vie (Life Lines) exhibition at the Centre Pompidou brings together pieces representative of her whole career: a vast, vibrant and vital installation, pulsing with form and colour, and open onto the city thanks to the gallery’s full-length glazing giving onto street level outside.
