Fiber arts by artist, designer, and weaver Sheila Hicks (b. 1934) will be exhibited in the DMA’s Atrium Overlook and in the Arts of the Americas Andean gallery in a special exhibition illuminating how the contemporary artist’s practice has been inspired by the weaving traditions of indigenous artisans from Latin America. Secret Structures, Looming Presence pairs works from the Museum’s collection of ancient Andean art with a selection of Hicks’ loom-woven, wrapped, twisted, and knotted fiberworks, offering a fresh examination of textile traditions through time.
