Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966), is considered one of the greatest sculptors and artists of the 20th century and is often regarded as the incarnation of modernism. This exhibition highlights the first and last years of the artist through nearly 100 works, from the beginnings of his artistic career in his father's studio in Stampa (Switzerland) to his last paintings in Paris (1960-1965). The exhibition includes in particular the artist’s last work, Bust of Lotar, as well as the plastic model, unique in the world, of his iconic sculpture Walking Man, which will be presented for the first time in Asia.
The exhibition, which is the fruit of a collaboration between the Fondation Giacometti and the Covana Contents agency, will be held from 21 December, 2017 to 15 April, 2018 at the Hangaram Design Museum, Seoul Art Centre.
