Giacometti - private introductory lecture and exhibition
Visit and Talk | Tate Modern
Thursday 1 June 2017 - 11:00
After coffee, the group will be treated to a private introductory lecture to this intriguing exhibition. One of the few artists of the last century whose work is often more recognisable than his name, Alberto Giacometti’s distinctive elongated figures are inescapably linked to the post-War climate of existential despair.
The exhibition, which is being staged 50 years on from the Tate’s first showing of his work, will focus on the influences that shaped Giacometti and the experimental way in which he developed his practice. It includes some never-before-seen plasters and drawings alongside more familiar bronze sculptures and oil paintings. In preparing for this exhibition, Tate has been given unparalleled access to the extraordinary Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti collection and archive, making this an event not to be missed.
Tate members should provide their membership details for ticket discount.
This event has been organised by the Kent Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
