In light of the forthcoming exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery “Lygia Pape: Magnetized Space” (7 December 2011 – 19 February 2012) curator Sophie O’Brien and Michael Asbury discuss the work of the Brazilian artist, from her early concrete and neo-concrete experiments during the 1950s to the radicalisation of artistic practices that Pape undertook together with her colleagues Hélio Oiticica and Lygia Clark.

Previously, she has worked as a Curator for Contemporary and British Art at Tate Britain, Co-curator & Exhibitions Manager for the Australian Pavilion at Venice Biennale, Head of Exhibitions at the Sydney Biennale, Curator at Artspace Sydney and curated an annual Australian festival of international contemporary art from 1999 – 2001.
