Opening April 24, ‘Lygia Pape. Tupinambá’ is the first solo exhibition in Los Angeles dedicated to Brazilian artist Lygia Pape whose wholly original language favors the primacy of the viewer’s sensorial experience and its role in everyday life. Organized with Projeto Lygia Pape and Olivier Renaud-Clément, this exhibition presents works from the artist’s deeply Brazilian Tupinambá series to a North American audience for the first time. Distinctive in their use of artificial red feathers, these commanding and rarely seen works illuminate Pape’s sense of connection to Brazil’s indigenous populations and certain characteristics of their history.
