Sheila Hicks at The Bass - April 13 - Sep 2
Campo Abierto features several large-scale textile installations and smaller works that make use of and transform the architecture of the second floor galleries at The Bass. The exhibition is centered around the extraordinary reconfiguration of Escalade Beyond Chromatic lands (2016-2017,) an expansive installation that Hicks originally created for the Arsenale at the Venice Biennale in 2017. The exhibition is open to the public and runs through September 2nd.
After the guided tour, the VIP attendees took their seats at a long farm table set up in the Trudy and Paul Cejas gallery with Ugo Rondinone’s Welcome Wall as a backdrop. The tabletop design featured brightly colored wool pompoms reminiscent of Escalade Beyond Chromatic Lands, Sheila Hick’s main installation, which also served as the inspiration for the colorful dessert designed for the occasion by our pastry chef, Bruno.
