June 8–September 12, 2018
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York
This comprehensive exhibition will feature more than 175 sculptures, paintings, and drawings by Alberto Giacometti in the first major museum presentation of the artist’s work in the United States in fifteen years. The show will examine anew this preeminent modernist who may be best known for his distinctive figurative sculptures
that emerged after the trauma and anguish of World War II. His paintings and drawings reflect his incessant investigations of the human body in sculpture, as he strove to capture the essence of humanity.
