Lygia Pape
Tupinambá

24 Apr – 3 Jul 2021 Los Angeles

About

A significant Brazilian artist of her generation and a founding member of Brazil’s Neo-Concrete movement, Lygia Pape (1927 – 2004) favored the primacy of the viewer’s sensorial experience and its role in everyday life. ‘Tupinambá,’ organized with Projeto Lygia Pape and Olivier Renaud-Clément, is the first solo exhibition in Los Angeles dedicated to Pape’s work, examining her unique reframing of geometry, abstraction and poetry. Central to the show will be the Tupinambá series, one of the artist’s final bodies of work, revealing her desire to create more immersive experiences beyond the conventional boundaries of life and art.

Exhibited for the first time in the US, the works on view from the Tupinambá series – distinctive in their use of red feathers – illuminates Pape’s sense of connection to Brazil’s indigenous populations and their history. Unfolding across two galleries, the exhibition will feature the monumental spatial work ‘Manto Tupinambá’ (2000), a series of related sculptures and works on paper, as well as an emblematic Ttéia. The exhibition follows the artist’s critically acclaimed retrospective at the Met Breuer, New York, and participation in the Hammer Museum’s 2017 exhibition ‘Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960 – 1985.’
