About the Studio
The first activity takes inspiration from Hauser & Wirth artist Lygia Pape’s ‘Tecelares’ print series. Participants will create their own geometric prints with blocks of foam and ink. Next, families will use colorful, recycled pieces of ceramic and stained glass to create mosaic frames for their prints with instructors from Piece by Piece. Afterwards, participants are invited to stay in the garden and enjoy cookies provided by Manuela, the gallery’s onsite restaurant.
About Lygia Pape’s ‘Tecelares’
From early experimentations with printmaking, Pape developed her Tecelares principally between 1955 and 1959. These works reinterpreted the process of woodcut, casting aside the notion of the ‘multiple’ and creating individual works with an emphasis on the power of expression as opposed to premeditated modes of production.
