Hardcover, 336 pp., 400 color illus.

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 Featuring a selection of previously unpublished writings by Clark, it is an indispensable source of primary documents for scholars of twentieth-century art history.

Lygia Clark (1920–1988) trained in Rio de Janeiro and Paris from late 1940s to mid-1950s and was a leading abstract artist at the forefront of the Neo-Concretist movement in Brazil, fostering the active participation of spectators through her works. From the late 1960s through the 1970s she created a series of unconventional artworks in parallel to a lengthy psychoanalytic therapy, leading her to develop a series of therapeutic propositions grounded in art. Clark has become a major reference for contemporary artists dealing with the limits of conventional forms of art.
