Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Lygia Clark: The Abandonment of Art, 1948–1988, MoMA Studio: Breathe with Me is an interactive space that explores the intersections between art, therapeutic practice, and the ways in which we relate to objects and people through physical encounters. Taking the work of Lygia Clark as a reference point, the Studio presents a series of drop-in programs, participatory experiences, and artist-led workshops that reveal the profound resonance Clark’s work has had on contemporary artists. Collaborating artists include Allison Smith, Ricardo Basbaum, Michel Groisman, and others.
