Alberto Giacometti forged a singular path within European Modernism, restlessly seeking a new language for sculpture as a “double of reality”. Presenting some 100 sculptures and paintings, the exhibition trails the evolution of Giacometti’s work from post-cubism through surrealism to post-war realism, with a special emphasis on his surrealist period.

Throughout his life, Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) was in conversation with some of the most influential intellectuals of the twentieth century. By highlighting three writers – Georges Bataille, Jean Genet, and Samuel Beckett, with whom the artist sustained lasting friendships – the exhibition examines how these dialogues may be traced in Giacometti’s oeuvre.

Curated by Jo Widoff, Moderna Museet, and Christian Alandete and Catherine Grenier, Fondation Giacometti
