Art In America

Lygia Clark

at Museum of Modern Art,
11 West 53rd St.

This retrospective for the pioneering Brazilian artist, "Lygia Clark: The Abandonment of Art, 1948-1988" contains some 300 works. Featuring numerous examples of her well-known modular, interactive abstract sculptures in metal, the show also highlights the elegant early geometric paintings that were part of the Neo-Concretist movement in Brazil. Most importantly, the exhibition offers an in-depth examination of her performance-based works, which demonstrate why Clark (1920-1988) is currently regarded as one of the most influential figures of the international 20th-century avant-garde.
