Lygia Pape (1927–2004), together with Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica, was one of the key figures of the Neo-Concrete Movement in Brazil in the 1950s and 1960s. Her specific understanding of geometric abstraction resulted in a radical new conception of concrete-constructivist art. In addition to ethical and socio-political issues, Lygia Pape made her poetic works fruitful for experimental experiences that involved all the senses.
The Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen is dedicating the first comprehensive solo exhibition to the Brazilian avant-garde artist Lygia Pape. It will present the artist's multifaceted, transgressive oeuvre, which she developed over five decades and include abstract-geometric paintings, drawings, reliefs, unique woodcuts, two ballet compositions, and poems, as well as films, multisensory experiments, collective performances, and immersive spatial installations.
