Giacometti: a line through time (27th April – 29th August 2016)

giacometti exhib at Sainsbuey Centre 2016—review/

[link not working but there really is a Telegraph review of the exhibition!]

Alberto Giacometti is one of my heroes and this excellent exhibition at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts commemorates the 50th anniversary of his death. Gutted to have missed the NPG show that finished in January this show made up for it, with the final room making interesting connections to British artists in the post-WW2 period, works that contained a “geometry of fear” according to the famous Herbert Read essay of 1952. Looking forward to the “speculative juxtaposition” of Giacometti and Klein at the Gagosian exhibition–yves-klein–april-27-2016

and the big Giacometti show at Tate Modern in 2017.
“All the sculptures of today, like those of the past, will end one day in pieces… So it is important to fashion ones work carefully in its smallest recess and charge every particle of matter with life.”
– Alberto Giacometti
