SHEILA HICKS - Campo Abierto (Open Field)

In an exhibition entitled « Campo Abierto  (Open Field) »  the Bass Museum of Art in Miami  Beach showcases the works of Sheila Hicks, an American contemporary artist based in Paris and New York.

Grouping large-format installations, as well as more intimately-scaled works of art from various periods, Campo Abierto (Open Field) explores the formal, social and environmental aspects of landscape that have been present, yet rarely examined, throughout Sheila Hicks’ expansive career.

Organized by The Bass Museum of Art with consulting curator Frederic Bonnet, the exhibition is supported by galerie frank elbaz, Paris and Dallas, and Etant Donnés Contemporary Art, a program of FACE Foundation, developed in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, with the lead funding from the Florence Gould Foundation, the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Chanel USA, the ADAGP, the French Ministry of Culture, and Institut Français – Paris.
