Although initially trained in painting, Abakanowicz also worked in textile, bronze, wood, stone and clay. Today, Abakanowicz’s works are housed in numerous international collections such as The Museum of Modern Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, as well as the Centre Pompidou in Paris. A major retrospective of Abakanowicz’s textile sculptures will be showing at Tate Modern from November 2022. In 1965 the artist received her first international award, which opened the doors to further projects and exhibitions outside of the Soviet Union. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s Abakanowicz worked intensely on her renowned series of large hanging fabric sculptures, which she called (after herself) the Abakans.
