Grouping works of art from various periods, Campo Abierto (Open Field) explores the formal, social and environmental aspects of landscape that have been present, yet rarely examined, throughout Sheila Hicks‘ expansive career.

Prompting contemplations on collaboration, dialogue and discussion, the exhibition is rooted in the reconfiguration of Escalade Beyond Chromatic Lands (2016-2017), the artist’s vast installation produced for the Arsenale at the Venice Biennale in 2017. The exhibition brings together several large-format installations, as well as more intimately-scaled works, that utilize and transform the architecture of The Bass’ upstairs galleries. The selection of works in Campo Abierto (Open Field) foreground the museum’s context in South Florida, a multilingual locus traversed by complex immigration waves and patterns, alongside environmental concerns.

Sheila Hicks (b. 1934, Hastings, Nebraska) received her BFA and MFA degrees from Yale University. She received a Fulbright scholarship in 1957-58 to paint in Chile. While in South America, she developed her interest in working with fibers. After founding workshops in Mexico, Chile and South Africa, and working in Morocco and India, she now divides her time between her Paris studio and New York.

Hicks has exhibited internationally in both solo and group exhibitions. Her work was included in the 57th Venice Biennale (2017), 77th Whitney Biennial (2014), and 30th São Paulo Biennial (2012). Recent solo presentations include: Lignes de Vie, Centre Pompidou, Paris (2018); Free Threads 1954-2017, Museo Amparo, Mexico (2017). In 2010 a major retrospective of her work, Sheila Hicks: 50 Years, debuted at the Addison Gallery of American Art and traveled to the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia and the Mint Museum, Charlotte, North Carolina. Hicks’ work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, New York City; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; Museo de Bellas Artes, Santiago; solo exhibitions at the Seoul Art Center, Korea; Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
