Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in United States
Giacometti



Giacometti
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum  •  8 June - 12 September 2018
 
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum presents the work of the Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966)—the first major museum exhibition in the United States in more than 15 years dedicated to the Swiss-born artist. Installed within the museum’s rotunda, Giacometti examines this preeminent modernist who is renowned for the distinctive figurative sculptures that he produced in reaction to the trauma and anguish of World War II, including a series of elongated standing women, striding men, and expressive bust-length portraits. The exhibition encompasses the entirety of the artist’s career, featuring nearly 200 sculptures, paintings, and drawings, some of which have never before been shown in the United States, as well as archival photographs and ephemera.
