The artist Lygia Clark would be 100 years old in 2020. Born on October 5, in Belo Horizonte, the artist died at the age of 67, in 1988. Over the next year, several tributes to the artist will be held around the world, including shows at the Guggenheim Bilbao in March; at Arco Lisboa, in May, and at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection – Venice, in July.

Anticipating the celebrations and kicking things off, the OM.art space in Rio de Janeiro is the first to host an exhibition in honor of the artist. The institution managed by the artist Oskar Metsavaht opens the individual breathe with me, which, in addition to presenting works, focuses on the artist's life. The opening takes place on September 17, at 18 pm, within the ArtRio 2019 week schedule.

The show is designed by Ale Clark and Carolyna Aguiar, with curatorial support from Felipe Scovino. During the exhibition period, until October 27, OM.art will also host a series of activities related to the tributes.
