This past Friday, I had the pleasure of visiting the Guggenheim in New York City with my former high school art teacher from 16 years ago. The exhibit was great and the company, wonderful! For those who live in the state of New York, remember you can reserve a museum pass from your local library, which provides you with FREE access into this museum.
Who is Giacometti?
Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) investigated the human figure for more than forty years. This exhibit examines the artist's practice and his unmistakable aesthetic vocabulary. Not only, will you be able to view his hundreds of sculptures, you could also see a documentary video capturing him in process with creating his sculptures (which is fascinating in it self) and view his drawings and sketch's, which again, are just as eye catching and intriguing as his sculptures. Giacometti's intensive focus was on the human condition, which continues to provoke and inspire new generations.
This particular exhibit is ongoing until September 12th, 2018
Address: 1071 5th Ave, New York, NY 10128
