LYGIA CLARK: A RETROSPECTIVE


From the next September 1st, the Itaú Cultural receives a show that will present a comprehensive overview of Lygia Clark’s production (the brazilian artist considered the most important today abroad), curated by Felipe Scovino and Paulo Sérgio Duarte. The exhibition will bring together more than one hundred works, including geometric and constructive paintings of early career and passing through the stage of the sensory works of the artist. The public will also have the chance to see some new works (which was not even being produced by Clark) and to attend to seminars.
The programming’s symposium will have two major themes - "Beyond the playful" (September, 5th) and "The place of invention" (September, 6th) - which will be discussed by researchers of visual arts who knew the artist or have a significant study on her work. During these two days of meetings, new researches on the different phases of Lygias’s work will be presented for public debate, including her approach to the film and her “borderline” experiences that approached arts and psychotherapy.
