Vintry & Mercer, at the heart of the City, is well-placed for exploring the best of London by foot, from The Museum of London showcasing modern objects, paintings, and costumes to The Tate Modern which showcases modern and contemporary art.
Lygia Clark (1920-1988) and Hélio Oiticica (1937-1980) followed similar artistic paths. Working in Rio de Janeiro in the early 1950s, they were members of the Grupo Frente, a collective of geometric abstract artists. They both associated with concrete poets, who investigated the meanings of words, their physical shapes and their arrangement in space.
