Curator: Véronique Wiesinger
Organization: Alberto and Annette Giacometti Foundation / Base7 Projetos Culturais / Fundación Proa
The first retrospective in South America of the sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti, one of the greatest figures of 20th Century art.
Through more than 130 works, the exhibition covered all his periods, from the initial stage in his native Switzerland, African art in the 1920s, and his most famous studies of heads and portraits, his emblematic female and walking figures in the 1940s, 50s and 60s. A timeline that allows us to appreciate the various disciplines experimented by Giacometti throughout his career (sculpture, painting, drawing, engraving, decorative art), and the revolution produced to the sculptural practice.
The works selected by Véronique Wiesinger belong to Giacometti Foundation in Paris.
