This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast spotlights Brazilian artist Lygia Clark and the Museum of Modern Art, New York retrospective of her work titled, "Lygia Clark: The Abandonment of Art, 1949 to 1988." It’s on view through August 24. The exhibition catalogue was published by MoMA.

The show includes nearly 300 works dating from the late 1940s through the early 1980s, including drawings, paintings, sculptures and Clark’s late participatory works. It looks at Clark’s paintings, her hands-on sculptures and her so-called abandonment of art. 

The show was curated by Connie Butler, who is now the chief curator at the Hammer Museum and Luis Pérez-Oramas, the guest on the first segment of this week’s program. Pérez-Oramas was the curator of the last Sao Paulo International Biennial. His recent MoMA exhibitions have included “Tangled Alphabets: Leon Ferrari and Mira Schendel” and “Transforming Chronologies: An Atlas of Drawings.” 

The image above shows many of Clark’s “Bichos” or “Critters” installed at MoMA. Clark intended each sculpture to be handled and altered by viewers.

This is the first of a number of illustrations (as well as some of the work in progress) that I have produced for Canadian menswear retailer Harry Rosen. I’ll be doing one of these to go along with each sale over the next year or so. There’s already one more finished for the summer sale, and another which I am drawing right now.

If you’re in Canada keep an eye out for these as they’ll be displayed in store and local press. More to come soon…

Award-winning Jean-Yves Lemoigne’s photography is surreal, beautiful and thought provoking. His images range from unicorn-men in hard times, pixelated actresses, and regular folk hidden in the shadows.
