Alongside Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica, Pape (1927–2004) was a key figure in the development of Brazilian modern art. Alongside Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica, Pape (1927–2004) was a key figure in the development of Brazilian modern art.

The exhibition is an amazing chance to learn more about this fascinating artist.

She started her artistic career as part of the Concrete movement (Grupo Frente) in Rio de Janeiro, which revisited the legacies of geometric abstraction. The movement then evolved in 1959 into the Neoconcrete group, which prioritized experimentation and process over tradition.

Today, she is represented by the gallery Hauser & Wirth, who announced worldwide exclusive representation in April 2016.

The Met Breuer is home to the Met’s modern and contemporary art program. Giving the public the chance to  explore the art of the 20th and 21st centuries through the global breadth and historical reach of The Met’s unparalleled collection.

Opened in 2016, the building was the previous home of Whitney Museum, (before it moved downtown). In 2008, the idea behind the Met Breuer project was initiated by philanthropist Leonard Lauder, who did not want the “lights to go out” in the former home of the Whitney. An agreement between the Met and the Whitney was signed, after three years of negotiation, in 2011.

The location opened in March 2016 following a year and a half of preparations as part of a US$600 million Metropolitan Museum of Art renovation plan.

(The building was designed by Hungarian-born, Bauhaus-trained architect Marcel Breuer (1902–1981). Breuer’s building is recognized as daring, strong, and innovative. It has come to be regarded as one of New York City’s most notable buildings)
