Don’t Miss Tate Modern’s Giacometti Show
At last London exhibits Alberto Giacometti. Tate Modern’s vast utilitarian interior is the perfect backdrop to show off Giacometti’s distinctive elongated figures. Giacometti has rightly become the worlds most expensive sculptor. Over the past decade, prices for the late artist’s work have skyrocketed above $100 million, making Giacometti the most expensive sculptor ever.
Alberto Giacometti’s sculptures, paintings and etchings draw big crowds. Due to the popular demand to his works, a retrospective similar to the Giacometti retrospective at Tate Modern will go on to the Guggenheim New York in 2018 and another major show in the Montreal Museum of Fine Art. Other recent shows at Shanghai’s Yuz Museum and the Qatar Museums Authority have brought Alberto Giacometti to new audiences. Giacometti’s works can also be viewed at the Swiss pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
Another exciting development in keeping Giacomettis works on display for all to see, is that at the end of this year, the Alberto Giacometti foundation will unveil the Institut Giacometti in Montparnasse, Paris, not far from where Alberto Giacometti had his longtime studio. The institute will serve as a research center and will also contain a full reconstruction of the artist’s studio, complete with his original furniture, created with help from the Giacometti library and archives.
