Opening Weekend: ‘Lygia Pape. Tupinambá’

  • Sat 24 – Sun 25 April 2021
  • 11 am – 6 pm

Join us for the opening weekend of ‘Lygia Pape. Tupinambá’ – the first solo exhibition in Los Angeles dedicated to Brazilian artist Lygia Pape whose wholly original language favors the primacy of the viewer’s sensorial experience and its role in everyday life. Organized with Projeto Lygia Pape and Olivier Renaud-Clément, this exhibition presents works from the artist’s deeply Brazilian Tupinambá series to a North American audience for the first time. Distinctive in their use of artificial red feathers, these commanding and rarely seen works illuminate Pape’s sense of connection to Brazil’s indigenous populations and certain characteristics of their history. The standby line opens Saturday 24 April at 11 am. Entry is free and will be allowed on a first come, first served basis. No booking necessary. For more information and additional questions, please visit the Los Angeles location page. COVID-19 Updates: The gallery will reopen at reduced capacity and all viewings will adhere to LA County Public Health protocols, including designated routes through exhibitions, hand sanitizer stations, and digitized exhibition materials. Masks are mandatory. The courtyard and garden will be closed until further notice. Also on view are ‘Amy Sherald. The Great American Fact’ in South Gallery and ‘Richard Jackson: Works with Books’ in the Book & Printed Matter Lab.
