Product Description

Lygia Clark: The Abandonment of Art, 1948-1988

Published in conjunction with a major retrospective of the work of the Brazilian painter, sculptor, and social-practice artist Lygia Clark (1920–1988), this book presents a chronological survey of the artist’s groundbreaking practice. Examining Clark’s oeuvre from her early abstract compositions to the “biological architectures” and “relational objects” she created late in her career, this is the most comprehensive volume on the artist available in English. Featuring a selection of previously unpublished writings by Clark, it is an indispensable source of primary documents for scholars of twentieth-century art history.
