Textile Museum of Canada presents the exhibition Sheila Hicks: Material Voices October 2016
“In all of the cultures of the world, textile is a crucial and essential component. Therefore, if you’re beginning with thread, you’re halfway home. There’s a level of familiarity that immediately breaks down any prejudice.”—Sheila Hicks
Material Voices honors this world-renowned, Paris-based American artist’s unique vision, examining how her visual language has been shaped by memory, place and materiality.
