Sculpture and works on paper by Lygia Clark are featured in Elles font l’abstraction, an exhibition chronicling the contributions of women abstract artists, with one hundred and six artists and more than five hundred works dating from the 1860s to the 1980s.

Elles font l'abstraction provides an opportunity to discover artists who represent discoveries both for the specialist and for the general public. It showcases the work of many of these women who suffer from a lack of visibility and recognition beyond the frontiers of their countries. Reviewing their specific contribution to the history of abstraction, the exhibition focuses on the careers of artists who were sometimes unjustly eclipsed from the history of art.
