Alberto Giacometti, Bust of Diego, c. 1956.

Alberto Giacometti


Tate Modern

The U.K.’s first major retrospective of Alberto Giacometti in 20 years, made possible through unparalleled access to the collection and archive of the Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti in Paris, contained more than 250 works, including some extremely fragile and rarely displayed pieces. Although Giacometti is revered for his bronzes, the exhibition showcased a number of works in plaster and clay, repositioning him as an artist with an inherently experimental approach and farreaching proficiency in materials. Giacometti arrived in Paris in 1922 from the Italian part of Switzerland, a move that dramatically altered the course of his artistic trajectory. …see the entire review in the print version of March’s Sculpture magazine.
