Sheila Hicks (b.USA, 1934) is one of the world’s foremost artists and sculptors working with textiles, fibre, colour and form.

Drawing together over 70 pieces from international public and private collections, this major exhibition will explore the many facets of Hicks’ ground-breaking work – from her intimate Minimes, small woven drawings she creates on a hand-held frame, to large-scale installations that fill gallery spaces with vibrant colour.

The exhibition will provide insight into how Hicks’ extensive travels across several continents, where she studied vernacular textile traditions and construction techniques through observing and collaborating with local artists, as well as experimenting on her own, has deeply informed and inspired her work.

Collapsing the boundaries between art, architecture and design, Hicks has increasingly engaged with public spaces outside of the conventional gallery and will respond to the spaces inside The Hepworth Wakefield building designed by David Chipperfield, as well as its setting in the River Calder and the new surrounding garden.
