About this item
Published as a sequel to Sheila Hicks: Apprentissages (2017), this new book by the artist (born 1934) gathers recent monumental and architectural-based projects. It emphasizes Hicks' relationship to the sites in which she intervenes and her way of playing with scale and site-specificity. Among the outdoor and indoor projects featured in the publication are Foray into Chromatic Zones (Hayward Gallery, London, 2015); Escalade Beyond Chromatic Lands (57th Venice Biennale, Venice, 2017); and Hop, Skip, Jump, and Fly. Escape from Gravity (High Line, New York, 2017-18). Sheila Hicks: A Matter of Scale places a particular focus on Lifelines, Hicks' recent retrospective held at the Centre Pompidou, which is treated here as a case study for the artist's broader practice.
