Sheila Hicks in 'Taking a Thread for a Walk' The Museum of Modern Art, New York

Through 10 January 2021

 

Part of the Opening Season in Fall 2019 for the re-opening of the new MoMA, works by Sheila Hicksare on view in the exhibition Taking a Thread for a Walk in the Philip Johnson Galleries on Floor 3, 3 North.

 

True to its title, this exhibition takes a thread for a walk among ancient textile traditions, early-20th-century design reform movements, and industrial materials and production methods. Featuring adventurous combinations of natural and synthetic fibers and spatially dynamic pieces that mark the emergence of more a sculptural approach to textile art beginning in the 1960s, this show highlights the fluid expressivity of the medium.
