Divisor (Divider) will be making only one walk from The Met Breuer to The Met Fifth Avenue Plaza.

Spectator participation isn't just encouraged—it's necessary for this reenactment of Brazilian artist Lygia Pape's Divisor (Divider).We invite the public to join in as we walk Pape's original blank "canvas" in a procession from to The Met Breuer to The Met Fifth Avenue. With this current staging of the seminal work, we revisit Pape's embrace of experimentation, process, contingency, experience, and desire to break down the space between the artist and the viewer.
Originally staged in the streets of the artist's native Rio in 1968, this free performance coincides with the opening of the exhibition Lygia Pape: A Multitude of Forms, on view at The Met Breuer, March 21–July 23, 2017.
Presented in collaboration with Madison Avenue Business Improvement District, this presentation of Divisor (Divider) is made possible by the Muriel Kallis Steinberg Newman Fund.
Rain Date: Sunday, March 26 at 11 AM - 12 PM
