Sheila Hicks – Free Threads, textile and its pre-columbian roots, 1954-2017

until 2 april 2018

Museo Amparo, 2 Sur 708, 72000 Puebla, Mexico

Without being a retrospective, this exhibition proposes a vast panorama of Sheila Hicks’ work. From one of her first paintings from 1954 to an installation designed for the Museum’s Lobby, proposing a thematic, non-chronological tour that delves into the artist’s concerns while highlighting her Latin American roots and influences. Although she lived in Mexico between 1959 and 1964, this is the artist’s first exhibition in the country since a collaboration with Antonio Souza Gallery in 1961.

Along the tour, great attention has been paid to the search for works that are not among the artist’s best known of and some of which have never been exposed, for at least several decades.
