A trip in the universe of Alberto Giacometti, one of the most significant sculptors of the twentieth century, on display at GAM – Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Milan with masterpieces such as Boule suspendue, Femme qui marche, La cage, Quatre femmes sur socle, Buste d’Annette, or the monumental Grande femme.
Curated by Catherine Grenier, chief curator and director of the “Fondation Alberto et Annette Giacometti” in Paris, which is providing 60 works from its collection.
Sculptures, paintings and drawings executed between the 1920s and 1960s have enabled us to follow Giacometti’s artistic development, from his beginnings in Switzerland to his mature period, spent mostly in Paris. The works are arranged chronologically and divided into five sections, each based on different themes. This will make it possible to follow the artist’s entire career, from his debut influenced by Post-Cubism and Surrealism to his late period marked by a constant quest for a truth that eluded him.
Afterwards, we have been invited for dinner in the residence of Davide and Sandra Blei, Aimig’s President.
