Publication Date 2018

A founding member of Brazil's Neoconcrete movement, Lygia Pape (1927-2004) pioneered a unique approach to abstraction and valued art that favored the primacy of viewers' sensorial experiences. This catalog, published on the occasion of Lygia Pape's solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth New York in fall 2018, brings together a variety of works from the artist's rich oeuvre, from sculptures, prints and paintings to installations and films. It focuses particularly on the series Tecelares (1952-59), Ttéias(2003) and Amazoninos (1989-2003). Designed by Damien Saatdjian, the publication includes a 2009 conversation between Pape's daughter Paula Pape, curator Paulo Herkenhoff and poet Ferreira Gullar, as well as a newly commissioned text by art historian Alexander Alberro that explores multisensorial art with a focus on the works surveyed here.
