The Fondation Giacometti's research team is offering a series of online lectures, a new format broadcast live.
As part of the exhibition dedicated to the famous sculpture of the Walking Man this summer at the Giacometti Institute, this lecture will place the motif of the walker in a historical perspective. From the funerary statues of ancient Egypt to paintings of walkers in the Belle Époque and bas-reliefs of medieval processions, the various representations of the march allow us to tackle questions that are at once aesthetic, social and cultural.
A true initiation to the history of art!
