Artist Talk and Conversation (In-Person)
The Threads of Architecture: Artist Sheila Hicks with Architect Frida Escobedo

In conjunction with the exhibition Americans in Paris: Artists Working in Postwar France, 1946–1962
March 2, 2024–July 20, 2024

Join our friends at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to celebrate International Women’s Day with fiber arts pioneer Sheila Hicks and architect Frida Escobedo.  Works by Hicks are featured in both the Met’s exhibition, Weaving Abstraction in Ancient and Modern Art, and the Grey’s exhibition, Americans in Paris—the latter show includes works that are on view for the first time.

In this talk, Hicks and Escobedo will discuss shared interests with Met curators, including ancient and modern architecture, textile technologies, and their experiences of Mexico in connection with their respective practices.

Moderated by Iria Candela, Estrellita B. Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art, Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art
