Published in conjunction with the major retrospective of Lygia Clark at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, this publication presents a linear and progressive survey of the Brazilian artist’s groundbreaking practice.
The publication is divided into three sections based on the key phases of her career: Abstraction, Neo-Concretism and The Abandonment of Art, each of which is illustrated with a selection of works from Clark, her peers and a younger generation of Brazilian artists. The book also includes a selection of Clark’s previously unpublished texts and personal writings.
Examining Clark’s output from her early abstract compositions to the biological architectures and relational objects she created late in her career, this is the most comprehensive volume on the artist available in English.
