Lygia Pape exhibit opens in New York's Met Breuer

The Met Breuer, the Metropolitan Museum space dedicated to Contemporary Art, opened this March 20th the exhibit “Lygia Pape - A Multitude of Forms”, a retrospective of the artist's work. This is the solo exhibit of an Latin American artist at the Met Breuer and it portraits Lygia Pape's body of the work in sculpture, prints, and painting to installation, photography, performance, and film. The gallery will hold "A Multitude of Forms" until July 23rd.

Pape (1927-2004) is one of the key figures in Brazilian Modern Art. In 1957, as part of the "Grupo Frente" she signed the "Manifesto Neoconcreto"; and, in 1959, together with Helio Oiticica and Lygia Clark, she started the Neoconcretism movement. The movement focused on geometric abstraction and experimentation, making the statement that art is not a mere object.

In the work that spanned five decades, Pape sought to approximate artistic objects to real life, uniting geometric abstractions to body, time and space. Works such as "Roda dos Prazeres" (1967), "Divisor" (1968) and "Banquete Tupinambá" (2000) are considered highlights of the artist's career.
