LVMH sponsors Giacometti exhibition
Organized thanks to support from LVMH, the retrospective exhibition "L’Atelier d’Alberto Giacometti" (Giacometti’s Workshop) at the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris until February 11, 2008 features rare works, many of them never before shown to the public. They include painted plasters and sections of wall from the artist’s three principal studios in Paris, Stampa and Maloja (Switzerland).
"L'Atelier d'Alberto Giacometti" develops the multiple dimensions of the workshop as laboratory, a ritualistic space and an environment that was inseparable from the creative process. Giacometti and his workshop were inseparable. As the place where he both worked and lived, it became his universe and progressively an extension of his being.
