Hauser & Wirth Announces Worldwide Representation of Lygia Pape

Hauser & Wirth is pleased to announce worldwide exclusive representation of Lygia Pape, the celebrated Brazilian artist central to the Neo-Concrete movement, who pioneered a unique approach to abstraction. Pape’s experimental practice spanned drawing, sculpture, engraving, installation, choreography, and filmmaking as she moved between mediums to explore geometric form, positive and negative space, the intellectual and physical participation of the spectator, and above all art’s potential to ignite social change. Many of Pape’s works were created in response to rampant political repression in Brazil in the late 1960s, and reflected the artist’s strongly critical views of the government’s social and political hierarchies.

Hauser & Wirth will promote Lygia Pape’s work and ideas through new research and scholarship and by securing international exhibition opportunities in order to introduce new audiences to her oeuvre. The gallery’s first exhibition devoted to Pape will go on view in London from 23 September to 19 November 2016.
