Lygia Pape at Serpentine Gallery, London

One of the founders of the Brazilian modernist Neo-concrete art movement, Lygia Pape’s (1927-2004) work represents a critical shift experienced by Brazilian contemporary art beginning in the 1960’s.  Focused on creating new artistic languages, Pape’s work seeks to conflate art and everyday life.  Some of her most important works, such as the Livro do Tempo (Book of Time) 1961-1963, are currently on display as part of Pape’s exhibition Magnetized Space, in London’s Serpentine Gallery, through February 19th.
