Playful Interactions: Lygia Clark

Participatory and off-beat. The spatial and sensorial art by the late Brazilian artist Lygia Clark finds new audiences. This MoMA exhibition catalogue encompasses works from her entire career spanning from 1948 to 1988.

Lygia Clark (1920–1988) trained in Rio de Janeiro and Paris from the late 1940s
to the mid-1950s. Clark was at the forefront of Constructivist and Neo-Concretist movements in Brazil and fostered the active participation of the spectator through her works.
From the late 1960s through the 1970s she created a series of unconventional artworks in parallel to a lengthy psychoanalytic therapy, leading her to develop a series of therapeutic propositions grounded in art. Clark has become a major reference for contemporary artists dealing with the limits of conventional forms of art. > MORE
