Giacometti


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

50 years since Tate Gallery first showed his work to London, the story of Giacometti's evolution comes to Tate Modern. One of the few artists of the last century whose work is often more recognisable than his name, his distinctive elongated figures are inescapably linked to the post-War climate of existential despair.

Tate has been given unparalleled access to the Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti's extraordinary collection and archive. From his first works of art through his Surrealist compositions, to the emergence of his mature style, Giacometti has rarely been explored this fully. This exhibition will focus on the influences that shaped Giacometti and the experimental way in which he developed his practice. The exhibition will include some never before seen plasters and drawings alongside more familiar bronze sculptures and oil paintings.
