International ongoing exhibitions
The American, who has lived in Paris since 1964, works with fibres in breathtaking colours, including wool, linen, silk and pigmented acrylic fibres, which she knots, weaves or spins to create stunning new forms. On one hand, through her painting studies with Bauhaus master Josef Albers at Yale University, the artist is influenced by Modernism. On the other, her work draws on the traditional arts and crafts of various continents, which she became familiar with during longer periods of time spent in Chile, Mexico, India and Morocco, among others. Throughout her career, the 88-
Hicks’ work has been shown across the globe and has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions in important institutions such as Kunstmuseum St. Gallen (2023), The Hepworth Wakefield (2022), MAK, Vienna (2020), Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas (2019), Centre Pompidou, Paris (2018), Hayward Gallery, London (2015) and Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia (2011), as well as in significant group presentations such as the 57th Venice Biennale (2017), the 20th Biennale of Sydney (2016) and the Whitney Biennial (2014).
