Fondation Giacometti -  Programmation at the Institut Giacometti

Lectures, seminars and master classes give the floor to art historians and curators for presenting their work and current research

This art history research programme will contribute to better understanding the decisive period in which Giacometti was living and working. The Institute will support and guide research on this period through a research scholarship, a collection of publications, conferences, and seminars. A reference library on modern art, including books from Alberto Giacometti’s personal library, will be available to the public.

International art historians and curators will present new research, shedding new light on a period of modern art history, through the original study of an artist, movement, or context. These conferences will be filmed and will constitute a reference corpus, accessible at the Giacometti Institute.

A scholarship will be awarded each year to support significant contributions in the field of the history of modern art.

The Institut will publish a collection of short essays by young researchers in the field of modern art.

A reference library containing books by modern art writers and about the modern period will be available for consultation.
