Be­cause she’s never once lost the thread

Toronto Life - - Culture -

In her nearly 60-year ca­reer, Sheila Hicks has pushed against the bound­aries of tex­tile art. Her ma­jes­tic large-scale fi­bre sculp­tures and ta­pes­tries in par­tic­u­lar are un­can­nily ar­chi­tec­tural. This ca­reer-span­ning ex­hi­bi­tion— Hicks’s first in Canada—cov­ers every­thing from her most del­i­cate wo­ven minia­tures to her gar­gan­tuan in­stal­la­tions.
