Brazilian artist Lygia Pape combined geometric abstraction with notions of body, time, and space in unique ways that radically transformed the nature of the art object in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Covering a prolific, unclassifiable career that spanned five decades, this exhibition examines Pape’s extraordinarily rich oeuvre as manifest across varied media—from sculpture, prints, and painting to installation, photography, performance, and film.
Nearby Eat & Treats: Blue Bottle Coffee on the top floor has yummy cookies, lots of comfy seating, and awesome kids art books to browse.
