This autumn Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen presents an installation of a hundred textile works by the artist Sheila Hicks (1934, Hastings, Nebraska).

In her work Sheila Hicks interweaves art, craft and architecture in a unique manner. She makes paintless paintings, textile graffiti and installations. This exhibition will present a hundred small woven works (Minimes) that Hicks has made over the past fifty years. ‘Cent Minimes’ tells the story of an artist with a unique personality and a life full of colour, structure and composition.

Design in Boijmans
This exhibition is part of the ‘Design in Boijmans’ programme. This autumn, design will be spotlighted in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. With two large exhibitions and one smaller exhibition and the arrangement of the museum collection, a lot of attention is paid to design in the museum. In 2012, the latest developments and innovations in design are on the agenda.
