Presenting Alberto Giacometti’s work to the general public through monographic and thematic exhibitions and loans to museums, in France and abroad.

Establishing a complete catalogue of the artist’s authentic works, with the result of ongoing reasearch being progressively made available online - see the AGD Catalogue: Alberto Giacometti Database

Accompanying the restoration of authentic works by the artist, thanks to the know-how and documentation of the Foundation on Alberto Giacometti's œuvre.

• Publishing or contributing to publications helping to foster knowledge of Alberto Giacometti’s work.

Providing a contemporary perspective on Giacometti, notably through contemporary art acquisitions.

Managing rights on Giacometti’s works and writings, as well as on the artist’s personal image, notably delivering authorisations for the 5/8ths of Giacometti’s patrimonial rights held by the Foundation.
