"Alberto Giacometti. A retrospective. The real marvelous "Exhibition from July 3 to August 29, 2021

The Giacometti Foundation is joining forces with the Grimaldi Forum to present, for the first time in Monaco in the summer of 2021, an exceptional retrospective of the work of the sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti, the most important of recent years, placed under the curatorial office. by Émilie Bouvard, Scientific and Collections Director of the Foundation.

This journey into the creation of Alberto Giacometti will take place under the sign of wonder. That of Giacometti, facing the "marvelous" reality, as he often says, he who endeavored to represent what he sees around him, without hierarchy: loved ones, objects from his studio, everyday things, landscapes. from his Swiss childhood or the Parisian suburbs.

The scenography of the exhibition, the richness of the works presented will in turn amaze the spectator placed at the heart of the artist's intimacy. The course of the exhibition will give pride of place to all periods, to all media, sculpture (plasters, bronzes), paintings, drawings, prints, to which Giacometti had recourse. It will allow a complete view of his creation, from early works to the surrealist period, from the return to figuration to his work based on models, and to the invention of the great icons of the post-war period.Bringing together nearly 230 works accompanied by photographs, this exhibition punctuated by masterpieces will offer visitors wonderful discoveries around 14 original sequences.

The route will notably restore the spirit of the workshop by revealing the detours and questions that mark Alberto Giacometti's creative process. The themes favored by the artist - the representation of the head, the face, the female body - will particularly stand out, but we will also discover his relationship to loneliness, melancholy, and his hard work with his models: his wife Annette, his brother Diego, his close friends.

The visitor will thus meet another Giacometti, the one who experiments with the limits of sculpture, and the formidable painter who also practices, alongside the portrait, the genres of landscape or still life.
