An exhibition “Lygia Pape: A Multitude of Forms” will be held on The Met Breuer, New York. This is the first monographic exhibition in the United States devoted to Brazilian artist Lygia Pape (1927–2004).
A critical figure in the development of Brazilian modern art, Pape combined geometric abstraction with notions of body, time, and space in unique ways that radically transformed the nature of the art object in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Covering a prolific, unclassifiable career that spanned five decades, this exhibition examines Pape’s extraordinarily rich oeuvre as manifest across varied media—from sculpture, prints, and painting to installation, photography, performance, and film.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s modern and contemporary art program includes exhibitions, performances, artist commissions, residencies, and educational initiatives in the landmark building designed by Marcel Breuer [BROY-er].
