Magnetized Space is the first major exhibition of Pape’s work to be presented in the UK. The exhibition brings together well-known and previously unseen works, spanning sculpture, performance, paintings, films, poems, engravings and collages by Pape, a founding member of the Neo Concrete movement. The exhibition presents work from throughout Pape’s career, including early drawings and poems from her Concrete period to her Neo Concretist Livros (Books) and Caixas (Boxes) series as well as ballets and performances such as Divisor (Divider) and O ovo (The Egg) and is organised by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in collaboration with Projeto Lygia Pape and the Serpentine Gallery.

Lygia Pape (1927-2004) was a leading Brazilian artist whose work brought together formal rigour and daring experimentation. In her own words, she explained her approach: ‘My concern is always invention.
I always want to invent a new language that’s different for me and for others, too… I want to discover new things. Because, to me, art is a way of knowing the world… to see how the world is… of getting to know the world’.
