This catalogue accompanies The Metropolitan Museum of Art Department of Modern & Contemporary Art exhibition at The Met Breuer.
Lygia Pape (1927–2004) was one of the most acclaimed and influential Brazilian artists of the twentieth century. A prominent member of a generation of artists who embraced the optimistic spirit of postwar Brazil, she is particularly known for her participation in the experimental art movement Neoconcretism. Beyond that, Pape engaged with a wide range of media, constantly experimenting in a quest to confront the canonical and discover unexplored territories in modern art. This beautifully illustrated publication accompanies the first major exhibition in the United States devoted to Pape's work. Featuring essays by art historians in both North and South America, as well as two previously untranslated interviews with the artist and an illustrated chronology, Lygia Pape is a testament to the artist's lasting importance to the modern art and culture of Latin America and to her position as a major figure of the international avant-garde.
