Lygia Pape

6 September - 20 October 2018

New York, 69th Street

A founding member of Brazil’s Neo-Concrete movement, Lygia Pape (1927 – 2004) valued art that favored the primacy of the viewer and his or her sensorial experience. Pape explored rich territory via the media of sculpture, drawing, engraving, filmmaking, and installation, and cemented her reputation as one of the most significant Brazilian artists of her generation. On view from 6 September through 20 October at Hauser & Wirth New York, 69th Street, this exhibition marks the gallery’s first solo presentation of Pape’s work in the United States since announcing worldwide representation of Projeto Lygia Pape in 2016. Spanning Pape’s multidisciplinary practice, this exhibition unpacks the artist’s singular vision, mining her profound and often playful approach to the physical and material experience of art, ultimately elucidating a deeply human understanding and unique reframing of geometry and abstraction.
