Being innovative without bordering on shallowness is for the truly gifted. Add to that an ability to connect the observer to the art observed, and you have real genius on your hands. We’re talking about Lygia Clark (1920-1988) – a Brazilian artist whose body of work ranges from painting and sculpture to discussions about the importance of art for therapeutic purposes. Clark, a giant of contemporary Brazilian art who died in 1988, was a member of Grupo Frente, a group of artists that aimed to break with the old, academic rules and find their own path in different expressions of art.

With the exhibition ‘Lygia Clark – Uma Retrospectiva’, which takes place from 1 September to 11 November, 2012, Itaú Cultural presents an unmissable chance to discover the artist’s life and work. Documents relating to Clark’s studies form part of the show, as do many of her most important works of art. Bichos, for instance, which comprise some of Clark’s best known artworks, are geometrical metal structures that are hinged all around, making them highly interactive. True to Clark’s intentions, visitors are encouraged to handle and manipulate the sculptures. There’s also a ‘Museu Virtual’ (‘virtual museum’) that enables the visitor to interact with others of Clark’s works.
