Lygia Pape 'Magnetised Space'

Lygia Pape's work is terrifying. It's terrifying because it's relevant, because its modern, because it looks like it was made on a computer and is somewhere on Tumblr. But it's not. Most of it was born of the sixties. Yet even that makes sense too.

Magnetized Space is the first major exhibition of Pape's work to be presented in the UK. The exhibition brings together well-known and previously unseen works, spanning sculpture, performance, paintings, films, poems, engravings and collages.

Pape was a founding member of the Neo Concrete movement, which is often seen as the beginning of contemporary art in Brazil. The exhibition presents work from throughout Pape's career, including early drawings and poems from her Concrete period to her Neo Concretist Livros (Books) series. Check back here next week for our thoughts on the enigmatic work.
