I met Sheila Hicks at the Ford Foundation back in August to see her remade textile installations being installed. The originals, which were almost 50 years old, were in literal rags after being fire-proofed with caustic chemicals back in the 1980s. (You can see bits of the ruined panels in the video, plus behind-the-scenes shots of the weaving process.) Read more about HIcks’s modernist fiber art here.
This picture of Le Corbusier painting in the nude at Eileen Gray’s house in Cap Martin is everything. (Although, he was kind of a dick about it.)
More juicy tidbits c/o Alastair Gordon here.
