ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
A preeminent artist of the twentieth century, Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) investigated the human figure for more than forty years. This comprehensive exhibition, a collaboration with the Fondation Giacometti in Paris, examines anew the artist’s practice and his unmistakable aesthetic vocabulary. Featuring important works in bronze and in oil, as well as plaster sculptures and drawings never before seen in this country, the exhibition aims to provide a deeper understanding of this artist, whose intensive focus on the human condition continues to provoke and inspire new generations.
PROGRAM: REFLECTIONS ON GIACOMETTI
A multigenerational group of speakers including artists Diana al-Hadid, Huma Bhabha, and Charles Ray reflect on the enduring legacy of Alberto Giacometti’s influential sculptural practice in a special conversation moderated by writer and scholar Michael Brenson.
